We went here after dinner to have a coffee and eat some dessert. They have tables on the street so we enjoyed sitting there a seeing people passing by. Lattes were good but not too hot so they got cold quickly. Pastriess looked much better than what they tasted.

We often go to Old Quebec City and always go to Paillard bakery. Scrumptious baked goods, great sandwiches, creamy gelato. We often eat several meals there in the same day. You must have the macaroons. They are the best anywhere. prices are reasonable. Staff get by well in French or English. Sit outside to eat and enjoy Rue St. Jean... More

If you like pastries, French coffees, fresh muffins, eggs and ham on croissants for breakfast, you might like this place. AND at great prices... Get there early, though. VERY popular lineup.

My fiancé and I had breakfast and lunch here. The sandwiches were delicious. Everything is fresh. I will miss this place when I go back to NJ.

This fine spot has tasty sandwiches on fresh bread, wonderful baked goods for breakfast. (We had a croissant with chocolate, and a yummy apple fritter type treat.) For sandwiches, we had a shrimp sandwich, and a chicken chipotle. (Except we got two shrimp sandwiches. . . that we didn't discover until we sat on a city wall to listen to... More

Thank you for your review! We are very sorry to hear that you didn’t get to taste our chicken chipotle sandwich! It seems there was a mix-up with your order, and it would be our pleasure to offer you a chicken chipotle sandwich free of charge next time you come and visit us. Please write to communication@paillard.ca, and we will... More
