New in 2021,it is now possible to sip tea or coffee, cider, craft beer or regional wine, surrounded by the works of local artists in a century-old building so special that it is designated a National Historic Site of Canada! Located on the main floor of the building, it's a great place to meet up with friends, take a break, work remotely, create art, knit or even play cards!

The licensed cafe will feature artwork by local artists and will also occasionally feature live entertainment, such as music, poetry, etc.

Featured artists currently on display at the cultural café:

  • André Audet
  • Roselys Belliveau
  • Danielle Boudreau
  • Georgette Bourgeois
  • Réjean Chiasson
  • Martial Comeau
  • Mathieu Hébert
  • Diane Jones
  • Ashley Ouellette
  • Charline Poirier
  • Anna Rail
  • Yvon Robichaud
  • Charmaine Savoie
  • Michelle Savoie
  • Émile Vautour

These works of art will be on display until the end of August 2021 and are for sale to the public. A new tender will be issued later this summer.

The ambiance of the large room where the new café is located has changed dramatically with the recent restoration of its historic wooden floors. This is complemented by unique furnishings made up of a variety of furniture from the past of the former Collège St-Joseph and the Memramcook Institute: a large table, an old work desk, classroom pictures and wooden chairs. Other vintage furniture from the region completes the nice decor. As for the licensed terrace, a summer program for it will be unveiled soon.

The café is open Tuesday to Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm. In July and August, it will be open 7 days a week until 9pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. In the summer months, an outdoor patio is also available.
