Cooking meets trucking at new restaurant

After two years of extensive renovations, Au Coin du Camionneur, also known as Trucker's Corner, opened in Luskville on Sunday June 17. 

Owners Benoit Galipeau and Robert Bergeron have completely reconfigured the building at the corner of the Eardley-Masham Road and Highway 148. New lighting, comfortable seating and large windows that open onto a breezy patio create an inviting ambience.

Manager Melanie Fortin has years of experience in the food industry. She has a staff of nine, including three cooks. The restaurant is open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day and delivery is available.

A huge airbrush painting of truck adorns the back wall of the restaurant. 

Fortin says they are expecting plenty of business from the many trucks that travel the road. Part of the improvements to the site included enlarging the parking area to the side of the building to allow truck drivers to park comfortably. 

This fireplace is a nice touch for cold winter mornings.

The restaurant features a full menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner, including vegetarian and gluten-free options. Draft beer will be on tap as soon as the permit is granted. There is an extensive pizza menu, including the Camionneur speciality, topped with BBQ chicken.

Au Coin du Cammioner's new staff: from left, Alexi, Frederick, Julie, Alex, Melanie, Eva and Karrissa. Missing: Gabrielle and Gail.

Fortin was delighted with their opening day, with a busy morning and a reservation for 29 people that evening.

The restaurant is easy to spot! Look for the cool old yellow tow-truck at the intersection of Eardley-Masham Road and Highway 148.

As someone who lives on Baie road and heads up to Quyon often, it really starts to hit how long Alary road has been washed out — and how annoying it is to detour around to head up to Quyon, Shawville etc.

After five years of planning, construction has now started on the Les Abattoir les Viandes du Pontiac. Set on five acres on the outskirts of Shawville, the slaughterhouse is the brainchild of Quyon entrepreneur Alain Lauzon and three partners, Sofian Elktrousie, Ibrama Diagne and promoter Gilles Langlois.

“We are aiming to be open by end of October,” said Lauzon last week, as he watched forms being set for more concrete to be poured.

Turtle S.O.S.: Save Our Shells!

Trouble in paradise.

It's June and that means those crazy turtles are once again roaming dirt side roads and busy highways alike; intent on finding mates, water and good nesting places as they have always done, paying no mind to the deadly wheels zooming past. I stop for a lot of turtles at this time of the year and so far we have all lived to fight another day. However I have never seen a turtle stuck in the bone-dry and baking-hot rink at the Luskville Community Centre before. Bad turtle terrain for sure.
