Amazing lunch here... it gets very busy Saturday and Sundays from 11-1. I would suggest going outside of those hours. Best thing about Art-Is-In? You can enjoy your meal with a pint at Tooth and Nail Brewery next door!

If you like cats... this is the place for you. Enjoy a hot cup of coffee while cuddling with some adorable kitties. All the felines are adoptable, so don't spend too much time here or you'll end up taking one home!

Cheap and *delicious* burgers and fries. My favourite is the portobello mushroom with avocado. Their meet is all free-range. Arguably the best fries in town.

A super fun Irish pub in the area. They have loads of live bands every Thursday-Saturday night, and no cover. It's also a great spot for a meal on their balcony. My favourite order is the curry and fries, and for dessert, classic chocolate fudge cake! Yuuum...

Easy 2.1km hike around the green... Pink Lake. It's a great way to see Gatineau Park if you're looking for something short and sweet. Trail is meticulously maintained, with wooden boardwalks and stairs in some places. This trail can get pretty busy during "peak times" on weekends; I'd aim to go early in the morning or late afternoon.

Another trail in Gatineau Park, but this one ends at Lusk Cave, where you can explore/swim in the marble cave. Highly suggest you bring a headlamp and water shoes!

Wolf Trail -- one of my favourite hikes in Gatineau Park. This one is a bit longer and more challenging. Worth the effort, as you'll come by two lookouts along the path.

Entertainment & Activities
The most relaxing place on earth. It's about a 25 min drive from here, but worth every minute. An outdoor spa overlooking the Gatineau hills, with varied temperature pools and saunas. It gets very busy after 100PM, so I recommend getting there early. This is great for every weather - winter and rainy days included!
