The Mackenzie King Estate Tearoom
T&CO. at Mackenzie King Estate Tearoom is a little restaurant company that sits in the heart of the Gatineau Hills and former Prime Minister Mackenzie King’s country home. The love of nature and the love of good food allow us the luck to practice our craft in this elegant and culture rich place. Whether it is a glass of wine and lunch on our terrace or the traditional English tea service with a view of the gardens, we want you to come and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings.
T&CO. is a fully licensed restaurant. Come and enjoy a selection of wine, beer and cocktails on the most beautiful terrace in the region and some good food to start your experience.
The Mackenzie King Tearoom is a full service restaurant. We ask that you sit for a meal. For light fare, and beverages, Kingsmere Snackbar is waiting for you just beside us in the coachhouse.
