A New Era

Front of Diner on County Road #42, St.Joachim, just off the 401

So who are we? Kris and Jackie purchased the restaurant in the summer of 2013. They both worked under Deb Delaurier and respected her desire to provide homemade food for a great price. Everything, from the burger buns to the jam on your Sunday toast, is made by Chef Kris. They also strive to support local businesses by purchasing fresh, local ingredients, while offering local beer and wines!

Diner History

The building that houses the St. Joachim Diner has a lot of history. First built as a hotel in the early 1900’s (check out the cool painting in our front hallway!), most people remember the Diner as the Country Boy Tavern, owned and operated by the Delaurier family in the late 1970’s. Ask anyone in the area, and they can recount memories of dining at the Country Boy 30 years ago, waiting in line for their famous perch dinner. The restaurant exchanged many hands over the years. New restaurants came and went, but eventually found its way back to the Delaurier family in 2010. The Diner features homemade classics such as meatloaf, cabbage rolls, and perogies, all from their family recipe book.
