My husband and I love to have breakfast together: we love the St-Exupéry in Rouyn. The eggs Benedict are simply fabulous, the coffee is excellent and the atmosphere is great!

Judith Létourneau citizen

Le parc botanique à fleur d’eau: close to downtown, for walking the trails, admiring the landscaping and the beautiful flowers . A real beauty!

Carmen Jacob Resident

Being an avid water sports lover, I vote 110% for Mawey SUP as my favorite activity! A great sport and amazing owners!

Anaïs Thibodeau Resident

Le Gisement, for a sweet treat with family or friends!

Martine Gélinas Resident

Our gourmet address: The Moulin Noir! The welcome, the service, the quality of the place and what can I say about the food… We always celebrate our birthdays at Moulin Noir.

Francine Bachand Resident

RécréOsisko is my treasure! It gives access to multiple ways to discover our iconic lake. It’s amazing to be able to move through the city, a body of water and the forest in the same activity that is either free or low cost in winter as well as in summer.

Noémie C. Boudreault Resident

The Pâtissières de Ruelle! For the vintage decor and their fabulous cupcakes.

Laurie G. Resident

The Collines Kekeko, a great place to escape for a few moments in nature. It’s 15 minutes from downtown and there are several levels of difficulty for the trails. I enjoy it in summer and winter.

Hubert C. Resident

Osisko en lumière! Lots of outdoor shows on the shores of Osisko Lake. It’s magical!

Cassandra L. Resident

In my favorites, there is the microbrewery Trèfle Noir to try new beers and their nachos with jerky.

Some fifteen stores and major retail chains have established themselves there.

With nearly forty stores, including major retail chains and local, independent stores, Les Promenades du Cuivre is the largest shopping centre in the region.
