Whenever we are in Quebec city, we have lunch at Paillard. This place can be crowded but the service is usually fast. This is not the place for an intimate lunch. This place is well-lit and huge picnic tables are aligned for maximum seating. So, if you are a couple, your luck is to find a small table lining the... More

Stopped by for a late lunch and tried the smoked meat and veggie sandwiches. Excellent bread and nice insides made for a good time. The cole slaw was very awesome!!!!

Every time I walked by Cafe Paillard on rue Saint-Jean there was always people in line at the counter and sitting at the tables. This tells me they must have good food and I dropped in for dinner and ordered the Boeuf Bistro sandwich; hot roast beef with horseradish sauce, blue cheese, caramelized onions, leaf lettuce on Paillard crusty bread....

Make sure you save room for Café Boulangerie Paillard. This is the most divine bakery. Next time we visit Quebec, I would make this boulangerie a daily stop. Whether breakfast, lunch or a picnic in the park, this would be my go-to place.

I'll just speak about their sandwiches and I must say that ou of 3 that i've tried, all were delicious and satisfying! They taste great, the bread was incredible, the specific mixtures of meat and veggies went along smoothly. All i can think after eating it was whether i should get another one. Which get me to my negative point:... More

Pallaird quickly became our favorite breakfast place. They have a wonderful assortment of fresh baked pastries. We tried a variety during our three breakfast visits, and all were delicious. During a lunch visit, we both tried one of the salads and a cup of gelato, which were also very good. Coffee is delicious and cost much less than in the... More

My wife and I went twice for breakfast and had the combo (ham, egg and cheese in a croissant, small fruit cup and coffee/ chocolate) all for around $8.00 per person, eggs seemed microwaved and not very good, but hot chocolate and croissants were outstanding. We stopped also a couple of times more for evening snacks, the macaroons are little... More

Strolling on Rue-Saint Jean we stopped into Paillard's - a Large Cafeteria style cafe and bakery. During our 3 day trip to Quebec City, we re-visited this cafe 4 times to enjoy their Fresh breads and pastries. Everything is so fresh and well stocked. We enjoyed their Chocolate Torsade, Chocolatine, Raisin loaf, Parisian Baguette, Chocolate Brioche, Olive and Feta focaccia... More
