Sugar Shacks near Quebec City? Which of these three would you recommend?

Pourvoirie du Lac Beauport :
Sucrerie Blouin (Ile d'Orleans) :
L'Entailleur (Ile d'Orleans) :

The lovely concierge at our hotel sent me a link to these three when she realized that the ones I had been looking at were more than three hours away, closer to Montreal.

We will be in Quebec City over the Easter weekend with our nine year old son and though this would be an interesting thing to do.

Many Thanks in advance,

  1. I've never been to any of those, but heard good things about l'Entailleur. Looking at their websites, their menu seem the most "authentic" to me. (I've never had "ragout de boulettes" at a sugar shack- yes it's traditionnal quebecois food, but not traditionnal sugar shack!)

    Too bad that none of them serves "grand père dans le sirop", which is my favorite cabane à sucre dessert.

    If you get the chance to go in the evening with live music, it's really worth it (assumic the musician is good).

    You might want to make reservations, since Easter weekend is a classic time to visit sugar shacks.
