A personal view of Knowlton, Quebec, the Eastern Townships most beautiful village.

Car Wash & Cafe Opening
Read the full story here.

A new coffee shop opening soon and the car wash soon to be operating is great news for Knowltonites!Good news for all of us who have been driving around with mud caked cars since the Esso Gas Station and the car wash closed; the car wash will soon be open for business! No longer will we have to drive to Cowansville, Waterloo, or Foster to get the dust off our cars.

It will be great to once again be able to have a quick car wash on Saturday morning and be able to drive about on errands in a gleaming car and not a dust covered vehicle that looks like an off-road rally car! Since the car wash closed residents have been forced to drive far and wide in the quest for a power sprayer and then usually by the time they drove back to Lac Brome the car had accumulated more dirt.

Having a car wash open again is great news as it was always a fairly cheap, heck, having the chance to not look like I’m driving a Jalopy will make me happy to pay double for a carwash if I have to!

Not only is the car wash opening but a new quick take-out café will be opening in the old Esso Station, offering residents and visitors a place to stop in a grab a hot coffee to go.

Richard Pilon, owner of the Star Café, is opening a new coffee shop in the old Esso station on Knowlton Road. The Star Café Express O will occupy the old gas station cash office on the corner of Knowlton Road and Victoria Street. The location is a perfect spot to make sure visitors arriving from Cowansville and Sutton on highway 104 can be fully caffeinated before heading into Knowlton’s central village.

The downtown Star Café is known for more than delicious specialty coffee; hot soups, pannini, pies, muffins and cookies are also enjoyed especially during summer when the outdoor terrace is full of people enjoying the weekend in Knowlton. The new Express O Café is perfectly located so drivers can quickly stop in and grab a coffee to go, something Knowlton needs and since it doesn’t look like we’ll have a Tim Hortons any time soon we should be happy that a Knowlton business owner is taking a chance at something new.

Having a take-out coffee counter right beside a car wash is kind of a good idea as well! While the husband is inside ordering a coffee and a doughnut...the wife can be scrubbing the hubcaps in the carwash! Come on! We'reWe hope to see everyone driving cleaner cars soon!
