Cap-aux-Meules (traditionally called Grindstone in English) is a village and main urban centre of the Magdalen Islands, which form a small archipelago in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. Historically, the Mi’kmaq people visited the Magdalen Islands, called Memquit, as part of a seasonal subsistence migration. Today, the Acadian village hosts a marina and is a popular fishing destination. If you are looking for anyone or anything, your first stop is the only Tim Horton of the Islands: it boasts the highest attendance of any Tim’s in the world.
