Perfect Place to Revive

The old town of Quebec is beautiful and crazy busy. But, there is a perfect spot a 10 minute walk from the Porte St. Jean that is calm and serves delicious Bistro fare and great beer to boot. I had a wonderful weekend brunch (the usuals but done wonderfully well) and a weekday lunch (equally... read more

My wife and I stumbled into the hobbit in the rain and in need of some late lunch. We enjoyed the table d'hote, her the lasagna and me the steak frites. Very pleasant meal and staff (albeit a touch inattentive given how empty the place was otherwise at 230pm). The majority of the other places right around there seem pretty... More

This place is excellent. There is an excellent wine selection for its price point, and the dishes are creative, plentiful, and present innovative Continental trends. It is well worth the visit. The chef is a genius with duck. Highly recommended.

I was a fan of this restaurant as soon as we entered and realized they were playing Postmodern Jukebox, adding to the lovely ambiance of the place. The service was very attentive, and it was wonderful to be right on Rue Saint-Jean. We were very satisfied with everything we ordered (French Onion soup, beet salad, cheese and charcuterie selection, beef... More

What a wonderful spot for breakfast! The service was fast and friendly. The atmosphere was pleasant as we were seated by a window so we could watch the action on the street. Starting off with not just coffee but a delicious espresso served with steamed milk on the side, made me feel like I was in Paris again. We treated... More

Loved the funky decor almost as much as the excellent food. Just outside the old city so not totally overrun with tourists. Loved our dinner here.

Great breakfast at very reasonable prices, All four of us ordered eggs Benedict and we all agreed that they were best we ever had. Coffee though was so so.

Stopped in for breakfast with my family at Le Hobbit which is a short walk to Old Quebec. The wait staff were great and the breakfast plates came out fast and were very tasty. Good value. Their lunch and dinner menus look good too.
