Visiting in the top tourist season in such a high-profile location, it was inevitable that this place would be crowded and it was quite packed. Justifiably, the food is delicious and it is in a prime location. The desserts were really the standouts here, and some people were getting the desserts for takeout. Also we really liked the grilled cheese... More

We've visited Quebec City in June. It was our second visit to this restaurant. This time we've stopped for a take-out of carrot cake and coffee. The carrot cake is simply the best we've ever tried. It's just right! Not too sweet, not too heavy icing. Simply delicious. Next time we're in town, we'll be back!

This restaurant has two entrances. We entered at lunchtime from the higher entrance in Le Petite Champlain, which means descending a steep set of stairs to the restaurant. It was raining outside but the stairs were not obviously wet and there were no signs warning of wet floors. Half way down the stairs my daughter slipped & fell part way... More

We mistakenly walked into the main Le Cochon Dingue on a Sunday afternoon, and it was so crowded you could barely walk through down to the lower level. Disappointed to miss eating there, we walked down the road and found the "café" version - Le PETIT Cochon Dingue. So glad we did! Cute little place, excellent selection of sandwiches, quiche... More

I travelled during the winter and the city was recently blanketed with a good snow storm. With the city frozen over, we stuck to the old town for entertainment, and made sure to stop by le petit cachon dingue. The food was quite unique and hit the spot, although the selection was not amazing. The environment was very warm and... More

Due to great reviews on tripadvisor and the proximity to our hotel in Lower Town, we sought this patisserie out on the first morning of our stay. We loved it so much, we returned every morning for the next five days! (We tried other patisseries but this was our personal favorite.) Pastries and lattes were great, staff friendly and fluent...

My husband and I went here after eating at the Le Couchon Dinque's main restaurant because we wanted to sit outside and relax with our lattes. Our lattes were good but the two pastries were just ok. I have a strawberry cheesecake of sorts but the strawberries were not too tasty and it wasn't a rich cheesecake filling. We also... More

We found this on trip advisor. Loved the walk through old town to get here. Staff spoke fluent English. We had sandwiches which were all delicious, and sat outside with a beautiful view.

We actually ate here twice in our short visit to Quebec City! The first time was when my husband ran out for breakfast pastries to bring back to our hotel in the morning! They were so great- we went back later for a mid afternoon snack and cocoa! They are very very busy and their food was very good. We... More

This is a BUSY place in the lower section of Old Quebec. It's busy for a reason, delicious pastry and breads. We got croissant sandwiches then went back for pastry. The staff is comfortable in both English and French. Traditional patisserie /boulangerie.
