Sutton restaurants and other eating options
For a little village there is a really good selection of restaurants in Sutton, mostly located along rue Principale.
A reservation is always a good idea especially at weekends and we can happily do that for you.
Everywhere has something to recommend it but, in no particular order, here are some of our favourite Sutton restaurants:
- Tartin’Izza. Tel. 450 538-5067. Great thin crust pizzas, main course salads and daily specials. Delicious desserts. Very popular so can get a bit noisy and frenetic. Nice terrace. Open for lunch at weekends and dinner Thursday to Sunday.
- Auberge des Appalaches. Tel. 450 538-5799. Imaginative, tasty, well presented, good use of local ingredients. À la carte main courses $17 -$32; three course table d’hôte dinner $34. The $6 Monday pasta night is a Sutton institution; excellent fish and chips $16.50 on a Friday night. Closed Wednesday and Thursday. Two minutes drive from the B&B.

In Frelighsburg Lyvano (lunch and dinner Thursday to Monday) is making a name for itself as well as Le Nomade (dinner Tuesday to Saturday) in Cowansville and Trattoria Sofia (dinner Friday to Sunday, May to September).
We can make you a lunch box to take on your hike, bike or kayak trip. It is also nice to go shop for a picnic that you can take to a shady spot by a stream or else eat here on the verandah or under the pergola in the garden.
In the middle of Sutton’s rue Principale, speciality store La Rumeur Affamée has a wonderful selection of local cheeses, cold cuts, breads, pies and pastries. Alternatively Chez Matis has excellent pre-prepared dishes. Wash it all down with a bottle of wine from Domaine Bresee or try Domaine Pinnacle‘s ice cider. Finish with some Belgian chocolates from chocolaterie Belge Muriel.
