Just the most amazing croissants and the freshest pastries we've ever had! Huge selection of sweeties, chocolates and traditional French pastry. Coffee was really good, too. Highly recommended!

I say these are the best pastries in Quebec City, but it might really be a toss-up between Le Croquembouche and Paillard. Le Croquembouche definitely has a bigger selection of pastries and bread. Located in St. Roch, we stopped here on our way out of...More
