Trip advisor reviewers were right in suggesting this place as a great breakfast spot. The staff were brusque but the breakfast more than made up for it. Good coffee, great pain au chocolat and the croissant with ham and cheese was good too. Worth going up to the second floor and sitting down in a very tastefully decorated large area,... More

We loved it here. Our daughter always ordered their cupcakes with a huge smile on her face and my husband and I had their omelets- they are sooooooo good. Great coffee and everything is so fresh. The croissant my husband ordered one more was WAY better than the ones at Paillard. We loved it here- it was cozy, everyone was... More

We had no regrets at all after following his advice but were pleasantly delighted. As they had special package menus for their meals and these also had different combos with good prices it... More

We had an amazing lunch on a very snowy Tuesday. I had the duck pie and the salad and my boyfriend had the sandwich and salad. Everything had been prepared in house right down to the salad dressing, it was simply delicious. We go every time we visit the city.

This place is a great place to go for pastries. It is right in the lower part of Old Quebec City near many shops. It is well worth the visit and trying some of their pastries if you are in the area.

Attended: February 15, 2014 Our thanks to Jean-Pierre, the city tour bus driver, who put us on to the small pastry café. We went for lunch and were pleasantly surprised by whole experience. (you can't always trust the tour guide!) The location is in Lower City overlooking the river. We ordered quiche and egg/ham croissant w/salad and took it upstairs... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by locals who also reviewed the menu with me beforehand. So I knew I wanted the Tartiflette and the duck spring rolls to start - yum! No question about ending with meal with the sugar pie O.M.G........HAVE IT

Whatever desserts you missed after your dinner at Le Cochon Dingue they have at this quaint extension--now with an upstairs seating area! In fact, this is where the desserts come from. They also have sandwiches, but I only went for breakfast. This is a fantastic place to sit back and enjoy a café au lait with a slice of sumptuous... More

My girlfriend and I had lunch here, it was excellent! Food quality and price were great! Excellent soup and sandwiches. This is a must for a quick lunch that won't leave you too full, so you can continue your walk through Old Quebec and still be hungry for dinner!
