We stopped in this morning at 7:45 am to get croissants for the car ride to the airport. The line was short, and the server was friendly and efficient. The plain and chocolate croissants, & the pains aux raisins (circular) were all delicious! We'd heard that they had the best croissants in Quebec City, and we are glad that they... More

We were looking for a place to have coffee and dessert after a wonderful meal and Paillard's was recommended. We chose two amazing chocolate wonders and a great cup of coffee. Even followed up with a great Gelato. Not romantic at all but who cares when you're transfixed on the desseets instead of each other.

I began each morning of my trip by walking from my hotel to Paillard. The fresh pasteries and baked goods were out of this world and very, very, very reasonably priced. I have a pain du chocolat sitting right next to me at my desk right now...I had to stop on my way out of town to bring some goodies... More

We stopped here twice in our 3 day visit to Quebec City. Gelato, pastries, sandwiches, soups and amazing baguettes. Loved everything! The portions are good but not overflowing. You can't miss the desert here - too many choices. Great for lunch or dinner.

This is a cafeteria style bakery and cafe. There are a few small tables that can accommodate 2 people, otherwise the seating is all communal. Trying to find seating for a large family could be difficult at peak dining times. Baked goods are excellent. Food is good and reasonably priced.

Lots of choices here and great that they have a greeter to explain how it all works. I had an almond croissant which was yummy and also split a bacon and cheese baguette type thing which was really good. Coffee was strong and hot. My husband had a bacon and egg croissant and liked it as well. There was lots... More

Unfortunately, for us, we only found Paillard on our last day in Quebec! We found the food was so delicious, the value very good, and the staff so helpful, that we ate our last three meals there!......and took a few snacks with us. The bread was delicious and the croissants were heavenly!.....I will fondly think of this restaurant when I... More

Paillard is a great place for lunch. Soups, sandwiches, and salads... They also are a good breakfast spot as their bakery is the best we found in Old Quebec. We stocked up on chocolate croissants! The prices are better than other options, too. Plus, the gelato is perfect for a quick stop in the afternoon.

This is a chic cafeteria with delicious breakfast and lunch. They have the Best cafe latte in Quebec, fresh bake goods, sandwiches, salads, soups and everything fresh. Try the croissants, fresh made throughout the day.
