“A great old-time diner”

Restaurant Cafe Central
Ranked #6 of 26 Restaurants in Coaticook
Restaurant details
Reviewed 29 December 2016

The setting is non pretentious and is the likes of a tired Corvette Diner. However, the food is very good, the place is clean, and the service is friendly and fast. Their menu is varied and it covers all three daily meals.

We had lunch at this diner and it was surprisingly good. We ordered a cheeseburger, fries, and a chicken poutine. The burger and the fries were in the likes of a typical highly rated chip truck. The meat was cooked to perfection, and the fries were crispy and fresh. The small poutine was more than a normal person would eat. It was topped with a generous portion of shredded chicken and Coaticook cheese curds. Their home-made gravy was also notable.

Overall, an very pleasant and affordable place to eat if you are looking for an outing for yourself or for your family. We are definitely returning for dinner soon.

I stop here at least once a year for poutines and other traditional Quebecois dishes. It is a small diner that has had very few changes over the years. The staff are friendly and helpful; year after year, they recognize me when I return. The staff speaks very little English. I always speak as much French as possible, and, together with their limited English, I manage to get exactly what I want every time I visit.

Pros :
- Good food and average service.
- Good prices.
- Quaint little diner. The kind of place that knows your name when your a local and treats you like family.

Cons :
- The staff really looks at you funny when your an "outsider".
- A bit of a fly problem. (Full disclosure every restaurant we ate at in Estrie had fly's buzzing around, so it seems like a local problem.)

This place use to have the best poutine in town. It's been sold and the poutine sauce hasn't been the same since. The food is good, is definitely budget friendly and the staff is great.
