Star Café's New Knowlton Digs Already an Eastern Townships Hotspot

Glad to be back in the Eastern Townships after a beautiful trip to Montezuma, Costa Rica. (Hola, amigos!) The flowers are blooming, and the birds are signing. As they say in Costa Rica, pura vida.

We noticed that Knowlton's Star Café has moved to a great new bigger location in the gorgeous restored tannery building (61 Lakeside), which was built in 1843. We're looking forward to paying them a visit. 

Good luck, guys!

UPDATE: We've been to the Star Café's new location twice in the past two weeks. What a nice place - always full of customers. 

It's already become a real community hub in just a couple of weeks since opening. What a welcome boost for downtown Knowlton, which for a long time has lacked community-oriented businesses that target local clients (as opposed to the fickle tourist market).

Just goes to show businesses can attract local people downtown with the right mix of prices and quality services - and do very well.
