Dropped into Paillard to buy a baguette...still warm! Noticed many people enjoying croissants and other treats. There is lots of space to sit down and take a café au lait when your feet get tired or the tads are whiny ( saw plenty of those on our visit🍼) The price is reasonable and supposedly have the best croissant in Québec...

Everything was delicious...from the pain du mois and hazelnut bread to the millefeuille and Equinox. The patisserie is bright and clean. The staff are welcoming and helpful. I even bought some chocolatines for the trip home.

A must to stop for me every time I visit to Quebec city! I love their homemade bread and soups. Excellent dainties and pastries. This time I purchased coffee beans as well!

The soup and sandwich were delicious and the deserts and ice cream exquisite. The coffee is good too. The menu is limited so it's not a place you would go for a romantic dinner. I would stop here for a snack again. Thanks for reading my post and have a happy holiday.

The quick, tasty lunch spot is a must for me when I travel and Paillard is great place for that. All the food is fresh. It's primarily a bakery/sandwich spot, but you can get soups, salads and hot beverages too. It's cafeteria-style seating and very good if you've got small kids. They get the food out quick. Most of all... More

great food at a great price. while in quebec, I wanted to avoid any "American" restaurants and this place fit the bill perfectly! Great local food and specialties, along with an accordian player in Quebec City!

Spacious eating emporium suitable for families or anyone looking for a lunch, or snack with coffee. A must for fabulous croissants. Conveniently located on St. jean street , the main shopping area in old Quebec.
