... and ate on the patio mid-morning - but the girl behind the counter was very friendly and helpful, and the coffee was VERY good!

The food in Quebec is great but the prices aren't cheap. This is a nice "sandwich shop" at which you can get a wide range of French lunch delights. We had a canard (duck) pot pie which was very good. You go inside to order and then wait while your entree is prepared or heated (depending on what you order).... More

We ate twice at this restaurant on the waterfront and both times enjoyed our lunch. Everything is made on the premises and the food is quite good. You can watch the bakers prepare the desserts etc. while you place your order and wait in line to pay. The tables could be kept cleaner and there could be more staff in... More

I've been going to Quebec City for years and always prefer the lower town to upper town. Since I'm usually staying at a hotel that includes breakfast, I've never had the need to go out for same. But this time, with a week's stay at the Chateau Frontenac for a Convention, I was on my own for breakfast a few... More

You enter to a kitchen and bakery where they are making everything fresh. A kind and calm-despite-the-crowds woman explained the menu to us and we ordered at the counter. The menu was small- which I like, as it indicated freshness- and had a variety of items. They also had a great selection of teas. I ordered a grilled cheese with... More

A nice little place in Old Quebec. We enjoyed that they had a few vegetarian options and that their staff was friendly to us.

How can a restaurant known for poutine be out of cheese curds!? I was offered shredded cheese as a substitute which I reluctantly agreed to. It was still good, but I was a bit disappointed, Excellent variety of beer and wine available. Fun atmosphere. Reservations highly recommended. I hope my next visit will include authentic poutine.

a chain most definitely but easy and fun with great outdoor seating. Wonderful service and nice location in the lower town. Good for kids and still fun and casual for adults.

You know how when you travel your legs give out in the afternoon? Well a cappuccino and a pastry at a small table allows you lots of time to relax and sit and watch the people getting off the ferries and the tour busses. We went through the Petit Cochon Dingue (the Nutty Little Pig) and were just amazed. They... More

Quebec has beautiful restaurants but they can also be very pricey. If you are looking for a quick lunch and are budget conscious try this place.
