The Menu

Beans and bannock, burgers the size of Batchawana Mountain, pancakes and french toast, a bottomless cup of coffee, appetizers that are delicious, 3 miles of white sand beach, and a 26 foot Voyageurs’ Canoe await you here. Our food at the cookhouse is sure to satisfy your hunger. As a finish to your delicious meal, try one of our famous apple or blueberry crisps, and our specialty voyageurs’ coffee. Poutine with our homemade gravy and cheese curds, and of course our fresh cut fries.

Sun’s Up, Coffee’s Brewing & Cakes are on the Griddle
Each morning the voyageurs would rise at four or earlier and set out, maintaining a rhythm of 45 paddle strokes a minute, which would drive a canoe at about six knots.  Every hour they rested, usually long enough to smoke a single pipe of tobacco. To pass the time and keep rhythm, the voyageurs sang as they paddled. Their unofficial anthem was “A la Claire fontaine,” a tale of lost love.
