Brunch redifined

We walked in on a Sunday morning and luckily got a table for 1 hr. Reservation strongly recommended. We tried the egg benediction and mid-cooked tuna. The poached egg with duck rillette was stunning. Coffee and verrine gourmande were amazing too. Our best meal in town.

The room lovely, the food suburb, the staff outstanding. I had the jerk chicken , my partner the sweetbreads with pork belly. The herbs and seasoning was perfect. Truly a pleasure to dine here

Great staff, wonderful setting and great food. What more do you need. The standout dish was the chicken liver mousse was the best dish of the trip. Had a hard time sharing it with everybody because they wanted more. Try the sweetbreads, they were delicious.

This little eclectic cafe is just what tops the day off in old Quebec. Not far from the lower town and in a trendy new district with nightclubs and bars . Although the local bars cater to the younger crowd, this cafe is for anyone. We had a group of 8 and stared with good French wine followed by "... More

Venture out of the normal tourist district of Quebec City to find this great spot in the St.Roch district just a few minutes by cab from uptown hotels. This is a bistro style restaurant frequented by locals as well as visitors to the city not afraid to venture out for a new experience. St. Roch is an old blue collar... More

Excellent food, and lovely service at the bar. The bartender was kind enough to give me restaurant recommendations for my next stop in Montreal as well!

You can get egg Benedict in many places in Quebec, but the best ones with the most delicate and best combination of ingredients I got them in Le Cafe du Clocher. Their cappuccino is also really good! Their espresso has the right balance of acid, sweet and bitter. I definitely recommend this place.

Based on reviews, went for brunch. Great vibe, unique and yummy food and excellent service. Portions very generous and brunch includes a yogurt parfait and latte. Very friendly staff. In a cool area of Quebec City as well.

What a find! Even though we had screwed up our reservation a few times and consequently arrived as a party of 9 more-or-less unexpectedly, we were graciously welcomed and seated. The atmosphere was casual but warm and inviting. The wine list was interesting and our server gave intelligent recommendations. And the food - wow! Interesting but unpretentious, every bite was...
