You got to eat here.

This is a must stop for food while you are in Old Quebec. The coffee is described as the "best in Quebec City" and I would have to agree. The Breakfast selection is top notch. I would recommend the duck confit Benedict, or any of the crepes. You will not be disappointed.

We sat at the window and there was a nice mix of locals and tourists. I had the Poutine and it was just fair - not great. But the prices were decent, service good and the atmosphere casual

Stopped here for lunch after a walking tour of Quebec City. Food was bland bordering on poor, service was almost invisible, ambiance was nonexistent. So many other grand choices in this foodie city, pick any other one instead!

Sat outside. The place is really touristy for obvious reasons. I really think the food is over priced and over rated. Not a terrible experience but certainly nothing exceptional.

Felt like the Friendly's of French-speaking Canada. Fine if you're in the mood for diner food, but otherwise avoid.

We had dinner here after a full day of seeing sights.It was very busy and we got a table right by the kitchen and washrooms. People kept bumping into us and my husband actually got elbowed in the back of the neck by one of the waitresses. The food took a long time to arrive and was average at best.... More

We had a breakfast here before proceeding to the Citadel for the changing of the guard. The kids loved their crepe and we loved our dishes. I had a half belgian waffle with an egg and hashbrowns. Coffee was good and service was great. Highly recommend for a quick and yummy breakfast before a day of sightseeing!

Visited this restaurant as a party of 5, three adultes, one teen and one child for lunch in August 2015. They were very busy due to a cruise ship in town, but we were seated within a few minutes and served water. The menu was "fancy fast food" though they did have an impressive selection of draft beer and wines,... More

I really enjoyed this restaurant! I really wasn't that hungry when I came in, but the food was so delicious I couldn't stop myself from eating. Service was good, and it wasn't too busy (we did go pretty late, though). I found the food to be a little bit expensive, but I enjoyed it. I got the soup of the... More
