Dining Out: Brunch at La Shop in Magog
by Janet Watson & Beverly Taber Smith
Recently the Dining Out Group of the Canadian Federation of University Women, Sherbrooke & District (CFUW) decided to forego our usual habit of going out for lunch. Instead we went to La Shop in Magog for brunch at 10 a.m.
A number of us chose the traditional bacon or sausage and egg breakfast, while others selected one of their specialty grilled cheese sandwiches with soup or salad. The food was presented in a unique way, on a board, and everyone agreed their meal was delicious.
La Shop also offers many coffee options. We were located in a fairly large room toward the back of the restaurant, which provides a unique factory-like experience. One of the chandeliers is made up entirely of cutlery―a great way to recycle old utensils.
The service was prompt and excellent, and our server was fluent in both English and French. Prices varied, generally less than $20, with coffee extra.
All in all, this was a very enjoyable experience and we all agreed we would love to come back again. La Shop is located in the former Brooks factory at 274 Principale East in Magog. It is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., seven days a week. (819-843-2093)
