“A must eat place in Riviere du Loup!”
Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

Booked a stop over stay in Riviere du Loup traveling from PEI to home. Arrived at 8pm tired and hungry. Checked trip advisor for places to eat and this place is number 1 with great reviews so we went!
Amazing service and food! I had ham and cheese crepe that was out of this world delicious and my husband had the salmon penne which he loved. Both served with a warm garden salad that was so different but great! We loved the local craft beers so much that we walked down the street to pick up right from the micro brewery several to take home.
They didn't have any chocolate cake left but we had the brownie with a raspberry sauce and it was the best brownie I've ever had.
We go to Prince Edward Island frequently and this will be our new layover stop and we will most definitely eat here each and everytime.
The server and we think it was either the owner and/or manager came out to speak to us in pretty decent English. They recommended dishes and beers for us and were very hospitable and we thank you for a fantastic night!

“Best chocolate cake in the world!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

If you travel to Riviere du Loup, you must go to Cafe L'Innocent. The food is absolutely stellar. We had the crepes with ham and cheese, along a local lamb fried rice. These dishes were delicious, augmented with unique beer from the Iles de la Madeline. We finished our meal with a slice of the most incredible chocolate cake in the world. After the first bite I declared "cake is dead to me now!" It's that good. The chef will reveal its secret ingredients if you have a chat. Highly recommended.

“Highlight of the visit to RDL”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed a delicious meal of crêpes and salad after a small complimentary appetiser. The service was excellent and the servers were easy to speak with in English and patient with broken French. The local craft brew was a great addition to the meal. Would return again and again.

“Smile with food”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

We stopped into this café to use the WIFI and ended up ordering lunch. The menu has a choice of crêpes, fried rice dishes, salads and soups and sandwiches. They also have beer and wine.
The helpings are large and the flavours original. The cooking in this relaxed 70s inspired café is original and doesn't fall into a single category. I had a warm salad of grilled vegetables with curried tofu and cashews. My husband had a salmon crêpe which came with vegetables and salad. Healthy, tasty food. The service was friendly and attentive. The decor is "artsy-bohemian".

“Totally charming”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We were pining for Quebec City, after which everywhere seems a bit bush league. But Cafe L'Innocent made us re-evaluate Riviere du Loup. Quirky decor, friendly service and tasty, imaginative dishes combined to provide one of the best meals in recent memory, at a very reasonable price. I had the lamb, cumin and cheese crepe - wonderful combination. The soup - a cumin heavy vegetable - was perfect after a long, long day on the St. Lawrence looking for the elusive great whales. The cheesecake was delicious and the wine list excellent value.
