We found this restaurant for breakfast when visiting the old City. We ordered Le Buade Benedict with 2 eggs, Vegetable Omelette, Western Omelette and Croque Matin. I found the Le Buade shredded duck with Hollandaise sauce especially tasty. All dishes were served with roast potatoes...More

We wanted to have a quick brunch after Mass. This place is right beside the Basilica so we went it. We enjoyed our meals! They have good food and friendly staff. I highly recommend!

We tried poutine there, thought it was very good. The menu has a lot of choices, not disappointed with the service or food.

Went for breakfast. Mostly empty, but service was still poor. Food was mediocre, especially the pate which was, in my opinion, inedible. Perhaps they survive on their location, just behind the cathedral. Would never go there again.

Our food was freshly prepared and tasty. As is everything in Quebec, also somewhat expensive, but worth it. The service was good. The French Onion soup was authentic and tasty. The salad was large and fresh. The vegetarian burger was also very good.

We have been twice for breakfast and once for lunch. We love it. For breakfast have the French toast and then float into a sugar coma...but it is worth it. When the French toast came out I wasn't sure what to think. The sauce looked...More
