A twenty-minute drive north from the center of Quebec City, Île d’Orléans is a small, rural island in the middle of the St. Lawrence River. It’s a surprisingly easy getaway for an afternoon, and this is where you’ll find Cassis Monna & Filles, a currant farm that produces bottles of (you guessed it) cassis. But it also serves lunch, including delicious versions of duck poutine, vegetable quiches, as well as various flavors of gelato and sorbet.
