Four of us will be driving from Montreal to Charlevoix (we are staying just north-east of Baie St. Paul in St. Joseph de la Rive) next week for four nights. After trolling this board's invaluable stores of information, we have made a reservation at Mouton Noir, plan to at least have a beer at St. Pub, and are planning to make a reservation at Vices et Versa in Malbaie. There are still some questions that I have that I thought someone here might have ideas about:

1) We'll be driving from Montreal to St. Joseph on Wednesday during the day. Are there any spots along that drive (a detour is fine, especially a pretty one) where we might be able to pick up an interesting lunch?

2) We'll be exploring around the area on the other days. We tend to plan around food so if there are any lunch spots or markets or any other food stops that are worth making around the Haut Gorges, Saguenay, Tadoussac, or in the Laurentians, it would be great to put them on our map.

3) As far as dinner goes, are there any other not to be missed gems. We had thought about seeking out a cabane a sucre, but have found most of the info out there to be offputtingly touristy. Are there good local spots worth stopping in St. Joseph itself or across the ferry on L'Isle aux Coudres? Any and all ideas would be welcome.

Thanks so much in advance.
