“Adorable bakery in Old Quebec!”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

I loved this place from the instant I walked in - quaint, cosy and adorable! It was a short distance from our hotel, so I grabbed coffees and pastries for takeout one morning, but then we went back a few days later to sit down and eat in the cafe. It's a hot spot for the morning rush hour crowd, so time your visit carefully, otherwise it might change the overall experience. (Think non-caffeinated, bleary-eyed professionals elbowing for lattes and croissants.) A great little find!

“A tasty gem in the old port”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

Tucked between alleyways is a packed, busy, loud, great coffee, delicious pastries/desserts and fresh food kinda place. If that's your thing than i highly recommend this place out. Everywhere else is a typical touristy expensive not-even worth it kind of restaurant. This is the hidden gem of the old town. I got the Vegi rice noodle salad... YUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUM. my sister got the Cajun chicken salad on their fresh baked bread. WOW it looked good. If I didn't have celiac i def would have ordered that. I would go again and again and again. A must for all.

“Fantastic find in Old Town!”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

Old Town can be chock full of overpriced touristy spots - Olive and Gourmando stands apart! Don't be discouraged by a crowd - they move fast! Try the smoked trout sandwich!
