“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

Had Paillard recommend to us and it didn't disappoint. We stayed in Old Quebec for 2 nights and we ate here 5 times, 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches and an afternoon tea! The pastries we had for breakfast reminded me of those in Europe. Macaroons were yummy, especially the nutella one! They also serve great sandwiches for lunch. Service was prompt and their English was great which helped. Can't go wrong here!!

“Warm and wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

A great warm place to pop into when the temps drop. Whether you grab a croissant or a sandwich lunch, everything is good here. We bought our bread and specials pastries from here all the time. This is a favorite hang for tourists so expect long lines at times, but the staff move you quickly through. This is one of the places Inspector Gamanche visited so any Louise Penny fan MUST visit!

“Excellent sandwich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

Paillard offers sandwiches and soups - as well as pastries and bakery goods. It's pricier than your regular sandwich joint but it's well worth the price.
