We ate there one night after a late arrival and realized dinner fare was not the main attraction. Good not nothing fancy. The Cafe is mostly a breakfast/lunch alternative to the Tim Horton's chain across the street. The coffee here is very good and the environment much more interesting than TH's.

This is the name on the credit card receipt! Splendid place, close to the harbour with an outdoor balcony overlooking the water. There has been a building on this site for ages, the first being the trading post. The interior of the café is decorated in keeping with it's heritage having an artisan feel. It is very popular with locals... More

On a visit to Gaspe on the cruise liner, Balmoral, we stopped to enjoy an excellent beer. The restaurant was busy with fellow passengers joining locals. However the staff were completely overwhelmed when most of the tables were occupied. We did however enjoy our experience in the sunshine,

There are not a lot of dining options in Gaspe. This definitely seems like the best place in town. They serve wine and beer and there is outdoor dining but atmosphere inside is also very nice. The food is very homemade and the desserts looked great!

Cafe des Artists is decorated with odd, but interesting artsy stuff. When I started to stumble around in French, the staff member that greeted us immediately switched to English and when I expressed relief she just giggled and welcomed us. We chose to sit indoors, but ample outside deck and street side seating is available. We enjoyed a shrimp salad... More

It's a great cozy place for lunch. Sanwiches, pizzas... You can drink a good beer or a coffee outside.

Went here for dinner last night. We're going back for breakfast this morning. Staff were extremely accommodating with our lack of French. I had a pizza while my wife had a wrap - both came with a side salad. Portions are more lunch sized, which is just what we were after.

I had a special of the day package that included a wrap with shrimp and avocado, salad, local microbrew beer, all for a very reasonable price. The wrap was delicious, and also the salad. I finished with cappuccino which was quite good. Servers were very friendly.
