Our hotel recommended Paillard when we asked for something “reasonably priced and healthy.” We were not disappointed on either count, having tasty green salads for supper our first meal in Quebec City, then returning for lunch sandwiches the second. While the gelato probably wasn’t healthy,...More

Stopped here twice for gelato and sorbet - wonderful! They also had a variety of breads, soups, sandwiches, and pastries. No doubt those would be excellent, too. An informal place serving tasty treats!

This is good for a quick & cheap breakfast. Pastries & desserts looked amazing. Coffee was good & a large cappuccino is the size of a large soup bowl.

Thanks to Trip Advisor, tried Paillard for breakfast. It was so good that we returned a couple of hours later for morning coffee break.

Great spot for breakfast or an afternoon snack! Croissants and all sorts of breads, sandwiches. The ciabata was super soft. Is crowded because it's on the main street, but it wasn't difficult to find a table.

We grabbed some pastries for later and some gelato for our walk back to our hotel. Everything was so good. I'm not exaggerating to say that was the best croissant I have ever had. It's busy inside and hard to know where to stand while...More

They were around $2 each. Not the best macarons I have had, but it was nice to try the maple one.

It is not a breakfast place ... but you can order croissant or egg sandwiches. It depends on the daily menu.

Hello - we only mail non-perishable items to the United States such as our coffee mugs, jams and caramel sauce. We are not equipped like large companies so the costs for shipping can be very expensive, usually much more... More
