Dine in style at Chez Sylvie

Snack shacks and highway burger joints can be dime-a-dozen so it takes something special to make one stand out. Fresh food and friendly staff are a great start. Add some cool 50's-themed decor and now you have Chez Sylvie in Luskville. Sylvie Biron and Mark Gricken, both of Luskville, have owned the Casse-Croute at 3000 Hwy 148 for nearly two years. 

In that time they have developed a truly comprehensive menu as well as an extensive take-out coffee bar.

The chromed headlights and collection of number plates from some classic cars from the 50's and 60's that adorn the walls are a more recent addition. 

A curio cabinet features treasures from the past, including a portable record player, an old typewriter and even a fossilized trilobite.

The Casse-Croute seats 28, with room for more on a outside patio. A gas station completes the business.

"We are getting a lot of regular customers now and people are coming from Aylmer and Hull to pick up orders," said Biron. "It's like a family here; we laugh and talk to everyone to comes in."

Biron insists on the very best of fresh ingredients that go into her dishes. "I don't buy average food, I don't get the food that's 'on special' to cook with," she said. "People come from other towns to pick up pizza; they keep coming back because you can taste everything."

However both Biron and Gricken see the success of businesses in Pontiac as largely dependent on the support of local residents.

"What is good for our business is good for all of us here," said Biron. "We promote each others businesses; all of us have the others' flyers and business cards in our shops."

"Eventually it'd be nice if the town was full of shops and services," added Gricken. "You could drive down the road and get an ice cream here and then a meal there. But for that to happen, we need customers to come in. That's all we need."

Chez Sylvie is open every day.

We used to go to Aylmer to get our food but now we go to Chez Sylvie when we don't feel like cooking and want a good meal. No turning back since, you guys are awesome. Keep up the good work and great foods! :-)

Slippery story: the update

On Monday December 4, a serious accident was caused by some kind of slippery fluid being splashed all over the highway in Luskville. Many people commented on the unexpectedly deep puddles, the effort it took to stay on the road and the horrible stink of it. There was so much, a snow plow was called in to strip it off the road. What was that stuff? Where did it come from? I managed to find someone to talk to from the MTQ within two days. But as yet, my attempts to get information about this incident from the MRC des Collines police have been unproductive.

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.

A serious single-vehicle roll-over was caused early morning on December 4 by a deep slick of some kind of waste matter spilled on Highway 148 near Parker Road in Luskville. Pools of what appeared to be septic waste or liquid animal manure were at least two or three meters in length and possibly 4 cm in depth, according to witnesses.
