Our boutique is also a vitrine for all black currant related delicacies, developed in collaboration with local gourmet artisans, such as Les Canardises (Crème de Cassis foie gras mousse), la Miellée de Morphée (churned black currant honey), and La Nougaterie (nougats, meringues, marshmallows, etc.).

Around 1930, in the Southern French town of Brissac, the Monna family ran a store called Source la Monnaguette that sold liquor, wine and lemonade. Upon finding a bottle dating from this era at the bottom of a river, Catherine Monna was inspired to pay tribute to her ancestors by using this name for her little gourmet shop.
Stop for a culinary treat at La Monnaguette and enjoy its charming terrace wonderfully decorated with beautiful flowers and offering a spectacular view of the Île d'Orléans bridge. Come anytime in the summer and discover a thousand and one ways to enjoy black currants.
Please note that we do not take reservations for the restaurant, but apply the rule of "first come first served". Thank you for your understanding.
