It is easy to miss the place. Located downtown, it is downhill about 2 blocks from the police station/firestation.

The atmosphere is charming; set in an older building with a tin ceiling, wooden floors and wood panel walls lined with original art. They have a selection of salads, tortillas, crepes, fried rice dishes, pasta dishes, wines and Quebec beers.

We ordered the steak crepe and ham/cheese crepe. They both came with new potatoes, fried mushrooms and a salad of mixed greens, red and green peppers in a light vinegrette. Each crepe was great in its own way... The steak was sweetened slightly with hoisin, meanwhile the ham had a rustic smoky quality.

Both meals included a fine curried squash soup, coffee and dessert (we both chose fantastic sugar pie), since one crepe was the daily special, and the other crepe was upgraded to the same for 2 dollars... It is well worth the 2 dollars.

Went for dinner with my 9y/o daughter on our one night in RDL. Couldn't have hoped for a better experience!

The staff were friendly, accommodating, and generous. The waitress made excellent suggestions, with explanations about the food, and offered special accommodation to ensure everything would be just right for each of our tastes.

This is a place up the hill, past the main restaurant drag. So easy to walk up to, or park right in front. We sat out in the herb-garden terrace at dusk and were the only ones. What a great little haven they turned that alley space into! Love the twinkling lights and wine-bottle garden accents.

The food was fresh and flavourful, served in just the right portions. The complementary appetizer was a perfect starter. Their slow-cooked ham and pork were both fabulous, each with a unique taste based on the sauce and techniques used. The rice was nice with a good mix of veggies, and the pasta not over-cooked or over-sauced. The cake and crepe we chose for deserts were exactly right - light, sweet, fresh.

Absolutely recommended this little gem of a place, and highly suggest taking the server's suggestions!

This place is not the easiest to run into, if you blink you might miss it, but you would be doing yourself a disservice. Try their variety of rice dishes and their breakfast. Coffee is fresh and ambiance is great

Quaint little place which we were referred to by Christine from Auberge La Sabline. It was quite late when we arrived but we were hungry. While being seated we almost wanted to leave because of the limited menu specializing in crepes, fried rice, and pasta but then the friendly waitress came and we decided to order since it was late already. So we had no expectations whatsoever.
And then it turned out to be a pleasant surprise. The food is simple and very tasty. The espresso was great. Combined with the price tag this little restaurant is absolutely worth a visit.
