You absolutely must visit this little bistro if you are in the area. The selection of coffee and tea is excellent. But most note-worthy is their pastries. We have visited this cafe pretty much every single morning for breakfast through our 3-day visit of QC and were not disappointed a single time. They have one of the most delicious croissants I have ever eaten! (and I lived in France for half a year). In fact all their pastries are inexplicably amazing. Must try this place! You won't be disappointed.

The pastries here are soooo good! We came for breakfast and the croissant was terrific. My kids loved the chocolatines! You can't go wrong with anything really. We saw that they had a great lunch menu too so we came back for lunch the next day and it did not disappoint. There was even a kids menu that included a special grilled-cheese with real cheese, not that kraft-single slices if you know what I mean. I wish they had a place like this near my house. I would go every day!

ordered hot chocolate which was flavorless and a danish pastry type item, which was so flavorless i left it after two bites.

the staff does it's job and that's it. i ordered in friendly and perfect french and the girl behind the counter gave me a real snotty answer when there was an misunderstanding "yeah, i understood that!!" or something to that effect.

Because we were travelling with an infant we could not dine in many of the nearby tradiational restaurants. This cafeteria-style cafe was our place to go when we ran out of other options. The pastries were excellent as was the bouche noel, hot chocolate, coffee, and sandwiches.
