Loved the bread and all the delicious pastries. People were tourists and Anglo friendly. Had wifi and seemed to be consistently busy. So many people seemed to enjoy the place as well.

Nice place to stop for a quick bite or a cup of coffee. The baked goods are delicious. This is a good place to stock up on your baked goods. Take note that this place only takes cash,

I stopped here for lunch with my 3 siblings after browsing the shops in Limoilou. We just happened upon this place, but it turned out to be one of our best meals. The soup, pizza, sandwich, and salad were all outstanding. The place was busy...More

ate here two days in a row. don't miss trying it. very nice staff. When we didn't have enough Canadian dollars for our purchase they told us ok, no problem and accepted less from us for the food. Unbelievable in this world.

Nice bakery but had better on this trip. Pastries were nothing too special and atmosphere was just ok for dine in coffee and breakfast.

A discovery by chance. Wonderful ham and cheese on baguette. Coffee a bit watery, lacked flavour. Desserts seem to be favorite. Will be back for croissants and chocolatines.

Their sandwiches are really tasty, but it's too much for breakfast. Unfortunately many of the Sandwiches or baguettes contain mustard, not everyones choice... The bread itself is really great, i guess the baker knows his work... Staff was nice but hardly spoke English...
