“Excellent place for sweet or lunch.... As we did both!”
Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

This is a great place. Everything was fresh and tasty (bar the coffees which were typically French), relaxed atmosphere, and friendly service. We went back here a few times. Highly recommended.

“MACARONS! So good.”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

I've never had parisian macarons. I bought the mixed box of 12 (with tax $17) - so delicious. Wow. Each one was perfection. Eat them out of the fridge.

The place didn't lend itself for wanting to stay and eat them there. The room was quite warm. Service was friendly.

“Best pastries in QC”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

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 town to have breakfast, and stock up on artisanal breads (try the olive bread). They also have some great sandwiches to go (on their own bread and croissants of course).

“On of our favortie place in Quebec city.”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

This bakery and pastry shop is unique in the city.
The minute you enter the premises you nose picks up the smell of churned butter that is used in most of the baking goods on display.
The variety of European-like cookies and pastries offerings is just amazing. Everything tastes good. The problem is making up your mind on what is the most appealing to your tastebuds.
I have not tried their sandwiches, good for a snack but they are next on my list.
There are a few chairs and tables where you can stop and rest for a moment and slowly experience the taste of their pastries.

“Best Bakery”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

The selection on offer in this establishment is wonderful. Lots and lots of tasty pastries. My favourite is the savoury pancakes. A good selection in Quebec. Staff are always very friendly.
