“Excellent lunch place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

We had no intention of having lunch at a sit down place initially. But when we walked around the lower town of Quebec City on the first day of our visit, we saw this cafe and remembered it has high rating on TripAdvisor so we thought we will give it a chance and we were glad we did.

We ordered a set of lunch special and a pie. The daily sandwich of the lunch special changes everyday. The lunch special includes a daily sandwich, a bowl of soup and tea or coffee. The set is about CAD$7.95 plus tax. The sandwich we had was wonderful. The crust of the bread was crispy while the bread was soft and flavorful. Ham was tender and succulent. Zucchini soup was smooth and tasty. The English Breakfast tea that came with the set was aromatic as well. Overall, very good value for a sit down lunch.

We went back again for lunch on the second and the last day. This is how much we love this place!

“Great atmosphere, #1 breakfast destination in Old Port area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Had Sunday breakfast and were not disappointed; delicious crepes, crisp waffle with some ethereal maple cream sauce! Great coffee/espresso and the friendliest waiter we had on our whole trip!

lots of choices, but this spot in lower old Quebec provides simple tasty food at a fair price. I had the duck torttier and a salad that was not very spicy but ok. sidewalk seating on a nice day is great

“Great place for brunch in Old Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

After freezing out by the river, we came across this great place and in we went for brunch. I would absolutely recommend the "Cocote migneron", which consists of eggs with Quebec cheese, potatoes, orange and mango smoothie and baguette toasts. The "Pain pomes" (French toast with apples) was also delightful for those with a sweet tooth.

“Great breakfast place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Great eats & close to all the sights of Old Quebec City. The meal was reasonably priced for this city as well. Some of the others were quite expensive, especially if you are travelling with children.
I understand that lunch is good too, but we had to move on to our destination. What a wonderful city..full of history & like European cities. Will definitely eat there again....maybe for the 4th time now.
