If you visit Mont Tremblant, QC it is definitely worth the 30 minute drive to Labelle, QC to enjoy the wonderful food that is lovingly prepared and served by La Gare owners Daniele and Jay. La Gare – Auberge, Restaurant, Bar is housed in the historic train station that was built in 1924. The railroad track is now gone but it has been converted into a 230 km long recreational trail – “Le P’tit Train du Nord” Linear Park.
On Saturday, November 9 we ventured to Labelle in search of a good breakfast. Kurtis came across Le Gare on Trip Advisor in his quest to find a good local place to get breakfast. We were definitely not disappointed. We sipped on our smooth full-flavoured lattes while savouring our honest, homemade omelettes (one filled with goat cheese and the other a Western) that were made to order and accompanied with fresh fruit. It was so delicious we made dinner reservations for the next night.
We returned to La Gare for dinner on Sunday, November 10. It was a quiet night during the “shoulder” season and it appeared we were the only patrons for dinner that night. We had the full attention of the owners Jay and Daniele. We thoroughly enjoyed our appetizers of Smoked Salmon Tartare and Calamari, mains of Duck Confit Salad and Steak & Frites (the frites were cooked with duck fat) and dessert of Carrot Cake with cream cheese filling.
A trip back to Labelle, QC and La Gare is definitely in our future!
