Description: o is Ciboulette et Cie." Remember the vibrant flavours and a home-cooked meal? Though Canadian families have grown increasingly busy, few of us have forgotten how delicious a home-cooked meal can be. But who has time anymore? Ciboulette et Cie is here to help. We combine superb culinary skills with a passion for fresh, local, hand-picked ingredients to bring the home-cooked meal to your table. All you have to do is sit and enjoy with family and friends. Our concept is simple: We find as many quality, locally sourced ingredients as possible then transform them into delicious, ready-to-eat take-home meals. Whether a family dinner on a Wednesday evening, a gathering at the family cottage, or a romantic dinner for two, we are there to contribute to the experience. Our Commitment Ciboulette et Cie (Chive and Company) is rooted in the community. We create partnerships between producers, farmers, and chefs so that you can enjoy the best our region has to offer. Just like the old General Store was at the heart of the neighbourhood, so too is Ciboulette et Cie. We believe ‘Local’ is more than a trend. Like us, it is here to stay. We have deep roots in this community and we believe your food should too. Unlike a supermarket, or a single-aisle store, we can tell you where your food came from – and chances are it's just up the road. By shopping locally and preparing our ingredients and meals right here in our store, we are ensuring that that the environment and local economy will benefit just as much as you and your family. So come in to our kitchen, and bring something home to yours.

“Good quality food; service needs some streamlining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

The interior is lovely and the food quality is terrific. We had lunch there (soup, salad, quiche, sandwich) and took some baked goods home. The food is first rate. The servers themselves are friendly and charming, but but there are areas for improvement. For example, it's counter service for food, and I stood in line for about 10 minutes because the server would take an order, and then go make the order. It would be much more efficient to have one (or two) folks dedicated to taking orders and the rest of the staff dedicated to food prep. Everyone was trying to do everything and as a result, our order got confused and it took an extra 15 minutes for my mom's food (they forgot to ring it through). But I'd definitely go back for order ahead food or baked goods.

“Awesome meal, great atmosphere, love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

This place is quickly becoming a staple anytime we are in town and wanting a delicious meal. The food is ALWAYS fresh, service is fantastic and general experience in the restaurant and shop is positive. They have done a fantastic job of putting together local ingredients with reasonable prices and a great atmosphere you can sit in and enjoy.
We had some "build your own" sandwiches, a slice of their "quiche of the day" and some side salads, all superb and delicious.
And as with previous visits, while waiting for the food to be ready, wandered the shop and grabbed some delicious ingredients and other groceries to go to cook with at home.
All in all a fantastic place, will be back and would recommend.

“A Real Gem!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

I have served the Asiago and red pepper quiche to guests on two occasions and they loved it! The mixed berry scones really stand out and carrot cake was decadent. I always find something to take home from their freezer, as well as daily fresh offerings. Lovely atmosphere and friendly and helpful staff. I can't stay away!!

“Only one standard here and that is HIGH”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013 via mobile

Have visited twice we were both very well looked after both tImes, excellent friendly staff and appreciate the fact that they accommodated us 5 mins before closing (would never get that in UK). Everything freshly prepared and very clean. The owner and his team do a great job!
