We were looking for a place to have dessert and coffee and this was one of the few places open after 5 pm. Apparently, in the winter, many places close at 5 in Quebec.

Very busy on a Sunday morning but not too long a wait after ordering and your food is ready to pick up. Most seating at long tables - a few smaller ones by the front window. Wonderful selection of breads and pastries. Enjoyed an egg and bacon croissant that came with a fruit cup. Interesting place!

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.
