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

Very cool decor and atmosphere in this popular spot. Ordered the General Tao Chicken which was very good! Desserts were great as well... Especially the Coffee Cake dessert. Mmmm. Portions are more than generous, service was decent and good quality food. Would visit again though maybe not for a business dinner as it was quite loud for conversation.

I was traveling with nearly 20 college students for the Snowshoe World Championships in January, and we ate at Cosmos for breakfast two days in a row leading up to the event. The service was outstanding from the time of arrival to our departure and the breakfast selections were great. Our students eat the broad spectrum from person to person,... More

We were pleasantly surprised at this meal we had on a Saturday evening here on Quebec City's Grande Allee. We wouldn't have chosen this restaurant, but it was the site for a reunion with old friends. The meal-sized salads and pasta entrees came in huge bowls. Nice staff. A little pricey, but it's a pricey neighborhood. I had a General... More

With my kids trying to have a different breakfast than the hotel one. We ordered crêpes. Nothing special. No negatives or positives apart from the price which is exagerated. Going to Cora would have been better. We travel a lot and we know expensive when we see it.

Superbe dejeuner dans un atmosphere bien le fun. Situé a proximité de grands hôtels, c'est un must a chaque fois. Anytime we go to Québec we need to stop and this week end we tried breakfast and they were delicious.

We went there for a Sunday brunch. I ordered crêpes with this amazingly delicious dark 70% chocolate melted on top. The chocolate had this heavenly taste. My husband tried the croissant with ham, that was pretty tasteful too. It had a pleasent buttery taste. We had a great overall experience there especially food-wise. Don't get me wrong the service was... More

So great, we ate there three times...two breakfasts and one dinner. The restaurant decor is eclectic with a great glass wall with shifting colors behind a picture of birch trees as well as other great textures/art. We were there during Winter Carnival and it was crowded, but the breakfasts were great. Large helpings and fresh fruit, great crepes! Dinner (pasta)... More

Really awesome environment! Great light effects, stone and wood work, and aquariums! We ate breakfast, dinner, and later drinks and desserts there. The breakfast was a huge platter filled with fruit and generous serving of eggs. The dinner was great as was the service. The bar was nice with great mojitos and delicious cream brûlée!
