Welcome to Les Fromages de l’Île d’Orléans, an award-winning maker of artisanal historic cheeses from the colonial period of New France. Our famous Paillasson keeps alive the recipe of the first cheese ever produced in North America.
During a visit to the fromagerie, you’ll be greeted by our friendly staff dressed in period costume, have a chance to browse our boutique, and relax in a covered outdoor terrace where you can enjoy a home-made spruce beer and light snack.

In our boutique, you’ll find many terroir products from the island, including: pâtés, rillettes and terrines, butters, jellies, jams, spreads, syrups, home-made ketchup, mustard, vinegars and salad dressings, maple products, honey, and unique gift items. Come experience a piece of living history!
