This new address for La Maison Smith, which has nine branches, will welcome coffee and knitting enthusiasts in a warm place laid out with the greatest respect for the building and its history. The opening is scheduled for spring 2023.

“It is a privilege to have the opportunity to continue the history of this ancestral building which has been operated admirably by the Ménard family for nearly 40 years,” says Jérôme Turgeon, owner of La Maison Smith.

“It’s part of our DNA at La Maison Smith to install our cafés in existing buildings, to create living environments that are harmonious with the chosen neighborhoods and to develop concepts that correspond to the habits of the people who frequent them. »

Built between 1875 and 1880, the former Manoir de Charlesbourg is located on 1st Avenue near the Saint-Charles-Borromée church, a few steps from the Trait-Carré. There are 225 seats inside and 120 on the terrace, a large parking lot, a bar, as well as a few lounges that will serve as coworking-type collaborative spaces, in addition to hosting creative workshops and the Madolaine community.

As for them, after 35 years of operation, the owners of the restaurant Le Manoir Charlesbourg recently announced that they would not reopen the establishment. Activities are continuing normally near the restaurant Le Manoir Sainte-Foy, on chemin Saint-Louis.
