A really awesome start to our day! My husband and I tried a lot of pastries as well as the sandwiches, everything was really good. Service was quick even though they were busy. The staff spoke English well and even went outside the cafe to show us directions when asked. Eating here definitely gave us a feeling of being in Quebec City!

The bread at this restaurant is the best! I take several loaves back to the states and devour them within days of our return. Their sandwiches are made fresh to order and their soups are made fresh daily. All the sandwiches are affordable. Each day they have a soup, 1/2 sandwich, drink and dessert special you can't beat it!
Their desserts are yummy as well, if you have room.

We found Paillard through the recommendations on Trip Advisor, and the reviewers were correct. It is a wonderful jewel for delicious bakery items and sandwiches. The food was delicious and the atmosphere seemed so French. We just loved it. You eat family style at long wooden tables which gives you a great opportunity to talk to your neighbors at the table. It is a place where locals go to eat, so you know it has to be delicious. They are known for a particular pastry which is a cross between a croissant and a doughnut. Unfortunately, I can not remember its name, but it was to die for!! I still think about it! The staff was helpful and friendly, and menu items were both in French and English. All the staff speak English and switch back and forth between French and English so easily. It was fun to watch. We found the locals there very friendly and helpful to Americans.

The food was delicious! The French do not know how lucky they are to have a wonderful bakery! They have everything, sandwiches, breakfast breads, pastries, and gelato. We had many meals, the pricing is similar to a Panera Bread, but the food was much better!

This restaurant is located right in the heart of Quebec City centre. We had a very enjoyable lunch here a cost of only $20.59 for two. Although busy the service was very efficient, with the added bonus that the young members of staff spoke good English. The restaurant also has a counter selling pastries, fresh crusty bread and baguettes, all baked in site.
