Quebec City Walking Tour

1,169 reviews
Filled with narrow lanes and pedestrian-only streets, the historic center of Quebec City is best explored on foot. This guided walking tour ensures you won’t miss the details that make the city so fascinating. Take advantage of Quebec City’s layout by following a downhill route from beginning to end, as a guide shares stories from the fortified city that’s the beating heart of French Canada.

Sadly, Moisan’s is liquidating and the shelves are getting bare. I don’t know the actual close date but signs are in the windows. It’s too bad this iconic Epicerie is soon to be gone. Beautiful place, years of memories, good luck in the next chapter.

This grocery store has a little bit of everything - premade foods, snacks, maple everything, dried pasta, toiletries, candies. The first night I was in town, I went to grab a few snacks and a quick dinner. Towards the end of my trip, I went back again to buy some souvenirs for friends. If you can't find something in here, I don't know where you'd find it. It's worth going just to see the inside of the store, which I couldn't get over the quaintness without feeling kitschy.

We loved this old world epicurean store. Truly wonderful items. I found things I can’t find in the states any longer and wonderful exotic items I can’t wait to try at home. So much for carry-on luggage. Checking a bag of foodie goodies!

From the picturesque exterior to the warm and cozy interior you will enjoy what they claim is the oldest grocery store in North America. It is a cute and charming place where you can find local wines, beers and cheeses, for a nice lunch either in the city or to take on a drive. I loved Atwater market in Montreal and you have it all here in a store. As you walk in you are transported years back in time in culture, décor, and selection. But don’t be fooled there is something here for EVERYONE. My French is terrible but I seemed to communicate fine as I went directly to the Charcutier selection. Ordering up two thick cuts of the numerous selections of pate, two selections of local brie, and a fresh daily made baguette…I could not resist a few varieties of spiced sausage and some homemade zucchini bread for my desert. Friendly old-world grocery just a couple of blocks from the St. John gate on St. Jean street I will visit this shop every time I go to Quebec City.

This is a wonderful grocery store to pick around in. It has every conceivable epicurean delight. It also has a few tables in the front with waitress service. We had a very good cafe latte and hot chocolate, but the standout was a chocolate tort with strawberries and blueberries. It was creamy like a truffle. Yum!
