SEASONAL CLOSURE OF THE RESTAURANT

Dear Client,

We take the health and safety of our clients and employees very seriously and after reviewing activities that draw clients inside our building, therefore increasing the risk of COVID-19 contamination, we decided to reduce these activities to the minimum for the winter season. Therefore, we wanted to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to shut down our restaurant until the month of May 2021. Our last day of operation will be December 6, as detailed in the calendar below. Please note that our Cheese store will remain open daily from 9am to 6pm.

November 29: Open

November 30 to December 2: Closed

December 3 to 6: Open

From December 7: Closed

We wanted to thank our loyal clients that have supported us throughout this pandemic; we will be back with new menu items for you in the spring!

Please stay safe and happy holidays to all!

Kind Regards,

The St-Albert Cheese team

Mandatory mask

COVID-19

Yesterday Medical Officers of Health from Eastern Ontario Health Unit announced a regional approach to the use of masks that requires individuals to wear a mask in certain enclosed public spaces. Wearing a mask is a supplement to other measures to limit the spread of COVID-19.

The new Directive is effective today.

The wearing of the mask will therefore be mandatory inside the St-Albert Cheese from today, July 7.

Thank you all for your collaboration.

Dear customers,

Given the constantly evolving situation and the labour shortage we’re starting to experience in our vital departments, we’ve had to take the hard decision today to cease operations of the St-Albert restaurant, for an undetermined period, as of Monday, March 23rd.

We’ve also had to adjust the Store hours; the new hours will be from Monday to Sunday from 11am to 6pm, until further notice.

Thanks for your understanding.

Celebrate the Poutine Week: Feb 1-7

From February 1st to 7th, poutine is the star at the St-Albert Coop! During Poutine Week, celebrate your love of this typically Canadian dish by taking advantage of our specials on poutines. Regular sizes are all only $5, no matter what flavour your choose. 

We also take advantage of this occasion to highlight a flavour specially created for Poutine Week, the Quack Quack poutine. It is being added to our traditional poutines, which are all just as delicious: classic, St-Albert, vegetarian, bacon, Italian, smoked meat and hot dog.

Poutine Week is a celebrated event in several restaurants in Canada and even abroad. Each participating Chef has to create a creative poutine that will be served specially for the event. Clients are invited to vote for their favourite poutine.

Out of Stock of 5 years old Cheddar

160705_mg_7254-editbarnyardSince the St-Albert Cheese Coop 5-year cheddar has won the Canadian Cheese Grand Prix, interest has sky rocketed and demand for this delicious cheddar has literally exploded.

As you probably already know, the honour winning 5-year cheddar is the one that we managed to save from the fire that completely destroyed our plant on February 3, 2013. It was part of the inventory that we were able to recuperate thanks to the firewall in our warehouse.

But then, in the last two years, we have seen our stocks melt like snow in the sun and we are almost at the end of this small reserve. That’s why, as of today, the 5-year cheddar will no longer be available anywhere but at the St-Albert Coop Boutique and even this stock will be exhausted shortly after the holidays.

Why? The rebuilding period has created a two-year break in the production of our cheddar. St-Albert 5-year cheddar is aged…5 years! The good news is that production has been restarted since our re-opening two years ago and new stocks are being created. St-Albert has always been committed to offering only the best and pure to its customers; consequently, we will have to wait another 3 years before being able to savour the next piece of award-winning cheddar.

We thank you for your patience and hope that you will be as excited as we are that it will be back on the shelves.

In the meantime, we wish you happy holidays and hope that you will take advantage of them by coming to the Coop to get some of our last bricks of 5-year cheddar.
