Part croissant, part donut and absolutely delicious! They come out at 11:00am and are definitely worth purchasing.

The pastry selection is quite good, as are the drinks. I would go back.

The Macarons are moist, fresh, crunchy on the outside and chewy inside, just
The way a French Macaron should be. They are amazing.
Nothing else worth mentioning.

my wife dragged me into Paillard and forced me to eat cake ! The next day I led the charge for a repeat visit. Very simple food and a cafeteria atmosphere are a perfect way to start the day. We took a bag of pasteries with us on our walk along the walls to the Citadel. good food does not need to cost a fortune ... this place is proof.

Purchased 3 different pastries. Onevery good, one pretty stale, and one kindatasteless. Good value, about$4 for each. Girl behind counter had a "yeah, what do you want?" attitude.

If you happen to be in Quebec CIty and looking for some amazing pastries, this is the place. We had an orange-white chocolate brioche that was to die for, not to mention the wonderful "Macaron du mois" (bergamote and cardamom), the poiriers, abricotiers etc. etc. etc.
