    Walking in we got a whiff of the exotic. Marvelous fragrances from spices, etc. We generally enjoy checking out grocery stores when traveling, so this was like a little mecca. Tasty tempting treats in...  more »

    This is an adorable old grocery store that is bigger than it looks like from the outside. A great place for those that like to experience the culture of food. I am glad that I read about this place on...  more »

    Had a very terrible experience here. We walked around and bought $60 worth of groceries, including prepared food items for our lunch. After we paid at the register, which is in the front room, we sat down at their little tables in the adjacent room to eat. Just as we were finishing, a man who works there came up and demanded to see our receipt. He said that another employee questioned whether we had paid. Since there multiple rooms in this old fashioned store, it seemed odd, but my husband searched the grocery bag (their bag, which they gave us when we paid, ahem), and couldn't find the receipt. Instead of saying "sorry to bother you, sir", he then continued to doubt us (oh, and did I say we were with our twelve year old daughter?!). So my husband walked with him to find the cashier he had paid. When the cashier acknowledged we had paid, the man from the store did not apologize. He instead said to my husband "you should keep your receipt." So, much as I would like to recommend this place, I cannot. I have never been treated as rudely in a store.

    A must visit for anyone in town. Why do I love this place so much. Over fifteen years now since I've first been here, the food, the desserts, the people, and the atmosphere. Everything about this place is original and authentic. It's like walking through a time portal to the 1800's.

    Really cute grocery store. This was one of the first places we came on our visit to Quebec City. It looks like an old timey place, lots of cool and interesting things to buy. The guy behind the counter spoke english too so that's a plus.

    Incontournable à Québec centre ville. Beautiful place to buy delicatessen or just warm up with a cup of coffee. Very good service.

    Great place to find a rare fine and culinary product. I have a soft spot for their men grooming kits and shaving blades.

Where to stay in Quebec City

Most accommodations cluster on the west side of the St. Lawrence River, with the city's split-level old town offering the widest range of options and best access to top attractions. Stay in the upper town to be close to the castle and enjoy views over the river. What the lower town lacks in panoramas, it makes up for in historic charm and access to riverside cafes and restaurants. If you want a less-touristy experience, consider the up-and-coming neighborhood of St. Roch, whose cafes, bars, restaurants, and artistic spaces make it an alternative traveler's paradise.
