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.

Once more the Quyon Lions' Club Santa Claus Parade, held Saturday December 9, was a great success. Warmly-dressed families lined the streets to enjoy the decorated floats, horses and of course, St. Nick himself. As the Beach Barn is conspicuously absent this year, the parade's normal route was reversed, with participants gathering at the Ste. Marie's Catholic church parking lot and walking down the hill to the intersection with Clarendon. From there, the parade continued to the Onslow Elementary School gym where hot food and drinks were served as kids lined up to speak to Santa about a few important matters.
