We were staying a little further up Grande Allee, so this was a convenient choice for dinner one night. The food wa pretty good and the menu varied - 2 of us ordered pasta dishes, which are generous and priced at $20 CA, another person ordered the Singapore Salad for $19 CA, the fourth order Croque-Madame for $15 CA.

We had a lovely dinner at this restaurant which was crowded due to the Hockey playoffs! Our server saw our puzzlement when we were looking at the menu & provided us with one in English! I had a wonderful seafood pasta dish which was covered in melted cheese. They were not stingy with seafood. It was a really good choice.... More

I think the Cosmos Café is really not as good as they say. Living in Quebec City, I've been there with my wife or with friends at least 5-6 times. My wife and friends kept on wanting to go to this place, but I just couldn't understand why. Their tartars are pricey and cannot be compared to the ones you... More

This place is not fancy but great for a casual night out. Big menu and big portions and everything was real good. It was lively with a nice young crowd. If you want a fun place and not too spend a great deal of money this is the place.

Looking for a breakfast a short distance from the Chateau Laurier, we requested some advice from the concierge, immediately recommended the Cosmos Cafe. Good food, god service, great coffee.

We sought this place out because it advertises a gluten free menu. We arrived hungry, and the host informed us that

Hi, thanks for the comment. Sorry for that downer, I understand your disappointment. We experienced problems with our former gluten-free menu. We are now working on a new one that we hope would be much better. In the meanwhile, we chose not to serve the one we judged not good enough to our regular standards. Once again sorry for this...

We went first for breakfast at about 10.30 on a Thursday morning. There were a few tables occupied. The service was attentive and friendly. The food was amazing - huge portions and delicious (I had the muesli with fruit and a smoothie and my husband had a crepe with banana, strawberry and chocolate). We were so impressed we went back...

Our family was travelling through Quebec City two weekends apart and we stopped at Cosmos Cafe after reading so many good reviews. The decor is marvellous and the atmosphere of this restaurant is really hopping. On Friday night it was packed, with live music, and we had to wait about 30 minutes. One morning we all had egg breakfasts and... More

Our breakfast experiences in Quebec City were happy and yummy and Cosmos Café was no exception. This was another that we happened upon more or less by chance when we were ready to drop for lack of morning coffee and breakfast. And we were very happy with both food (including a smoothie - the jus celeste du jour, fruit plate,... More
