I had breakfast here on the way from the Château Laurier to a meeting farther up the Grande-Allée. I ordered eggs and sausage (expecting two eggs) but was given the equivalent "business breakfast" with a single egg and one sausage -- no harm done, as the extra calories were not really needed. The food was average, as was the coffee,... More

We always stop at Cosmos for lunch (we often have missed breakfast so we are starving!). Everyone likes the food which is upscale pub grub with some twists which seems to elevate the menu and offerings. I found it expensive for what it was this time- not sure lunch should be twenty dollars per person without any drinks of any... More

The Cosmos Café was visually attractive and had a fun atmosphere. The bathroom was something extraordinary. The food however while presented well was very average and nothing to write home about.

We were looking for a great all-day breakfast and found reviews recommending this gem. Fast and efficient service, terrific and tasty breakfast. We will stop by again, when we are next in town. I had an excellent eggs benedict with prosciutto, roasted potatoes and fruit, while my gorgeous dining partner went for chocolate and banana crepes. Both were yummy, as... More

$8 muesli breakfast. Fills you until late lunch. Decor is beautiful. Service is great. High quality food. Ate there each morning.

Tasty meal! Had a cosmos salad and stirfry. It was excellent! Went on a Monday night and it wasn't very busy, as can be expected. Would definitely go back and recommend it to anyone travelling in the area. Take a walk down Grande Allée after and enjoy the sites of the old city.

A little place right next door to our hotel that we were fortunate to find on our walk. They had a variety of every breakfast food, smoothies, espresso and good coffee; with great service.

This restaurant has everything to please its customers: a prime location on Grande Allée avenue, comfortable and well decorated, a speedy and friendly service, generous servings, healthy and delicious breakfasts. They serve other meals as well, but we only tried it for our breakfasts during our vacations in Quebec City. Highly recommended for breakfasts.

My husband and I came here for breakfast and we were very happy with the outcome! It was a bit pricey for breakfast but you get A LOT of food! I wasn't expecting so much food which was good cause it definitely got us through almost the whole day of touring until a 5pm dinner! And the food was very... More

I had breakfast with a friend at Cosmos several mornings during my visit to Quebec City. I enjoyed their three small crepes served with fruit - they are almost like pancakes but finer. Sides of bacon or ham are generous portions. Coffee was good and the orange juice was delicious. My friend loved the large crepe with fruit and potatoes... More
