Quaint Lunch Spot

Adorable little spot. Sat at a table by the window which had a nice view of the street. I ordered a french onion soup that had beer and maple in it and a beet salad. Both were excellent!

Prior to our visit I checked TripAdvisor to select restaurants for our meals. This was one selected but it was outside the walled city where we were staying so I was uncertain if we would go outside of the walled area. As our bags didn't come on our flight, my contact lens solution didn't come with us. As we arrived... More

We had recommendations for this restaurant instead of Aux Anciens Canadiens, because of its similar nature and more where the locals go. It was ambrosial! Beef tartar was a first for us and was flavor fully spiced. The onion soup rivaled any I've had before. The lamb shank was great, but the duck duo was indescribable! Definitely a place to... More

Good place for breakfast, but it was very noisy. Tables are very close to others and you don't get much "privacy". Hopefully the waiter had many tables because he seemed to be in a rush and forgot some items. Coffee is a rer thing. I took an egg benedict. Not bad, but after a while, I got sick of the... More

We went without a reservation and were able to get a nice table. The cheese plate was excellent. The lamb I had was very good. The best meal we had in Quebec. As they say, venture outside the walls.

Driving into the city from Montreal when we were diverted due to a local protest over budget cuts in the province. Have been many times to Québec City before but we were now hitting streets I didn't know. Finally, after going in a circle and hitting Rue St. Jean my wife said park the car and lets get a drink...

Group of 8, without reservations, but were seated in the side area with another large group. A little loud with the birthday party going on. Didn't particularly the entre. Most other had soup and salads. The Cafe was highly recommended and had a waiting crowd. Probably more suited for a French palat.

This is a locals specialty. The wait staff is great, funny, and very helpful if you have a little patience to get by the "FC" thing. We ordered a bottle of wine the server hadn't tried so we all did it together - and then he did the ordering WONDERFUL Remember this is pretty much a locals place but an... More

Le Hobbit is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, but I only have sampled the breakfast: twice. I went one morning while my wife was elsewhere, and liked it so much that I came back a day or so later so that she could try it as well. On both occasions, I ordered "L'Omelette Delicieuse," a kitchen-sink omelette creation. On... More
