This bakery is right on rue St. Jean in the heart of Old Quebec and they make the most delicious, light and flaky croissants and baked items! It's a great place to stop for breakfast for a typically French start to the day, with a large bowl of cafe au lait or hot chocolate. They have lots of seating and... More

We only stayed two days to experience this lovely spot, and it's probably a good thing, because I would have packed on the pounds! We had breakfast here every morning, and it was a wonderful way to begin our day of exploring. The staff was very friendly, and most spoke English, (thankfully!) The shop was very clean, and the food... More

Delicious fresh baked goods, lots of options, reasonable prices! The staff spoke English and patiently helped us with the menu. Though it was busy, it was relatively roomy and comfortable, and very clean.

Hi quality French bakery with outstanding baked goods- busy place but very clean- sandwiches a little disappointing- made to order but took much too long for an over counter purchase and the sandwiches were pricey and lightly packed - much better jambons on France!

For a lunch or snack with a différent atmosphere, that would respond to what you need. You can find breads, pastery etc. But what surprised me was that I has I entered the buisness I lost my usual restauration refrences.

My hubby and I stopped by while we were visiting Quebec City for our babymoon. The reviews are true and I'm so glad we tried it out! We had lunch here (soup and half sandwich) which was pretty good, and then we stopped by again later for chocolate desserts (something similar to a chocolate croissant). They were to die for!!!...
