Adventures in Quebec City

QuebecCity

We recently had a wonderful trip to Quebec City at the beginning of October with my husband and two daughters. We decided to make the trip not only to visit this beautiful city, but also to watch the Synchronized Swimming World Cup which was taking place at Laval University. Three things I love all in one place . . . synchro, travel and wonderful food! We were extremely lucky to have stunning early Fall weather making our sightseeing around the city picture perfect. I highly recommend making the trip, the old city is a UNESCO world heritage site and overall it is a beautiful place to visit with great food and great hospitatlity. Check out this site for more info: www.quebecregion.com.

So, of course while travelling I must also do good research : ) We had a great time eating our way around town and here are the highlights of the establishments we visited . . .

Paillard

Café-Boulangerie Paillard – I am in love with this place, so much so that we went 3 days in a row. The BEST pastries I have ever had (we sampled a bunch!) and lovely lattes. I also bought some of their homemade fleur de sel caramel which is out of this world!

Le Marché du Vieux-Port – A beautiful waterfront indoor farmer’s market with lovely produce and home made goods. We bought maple sugar candies, home made jams, and apples to munch on while we walked the city. The vendors were very friendly and we enjoyed samples of apple butter, fall strawberries, nougat and foie gras as we shopped.

Au Petit Coin Breton – A lovely lunch of perfect French Onion Soup and Crepes! Good kids menu too – with a surprise dessert for the children.

Chez Ashton – Poutine from Quebec, enough said!

accentbistro

Bistro L’Accent – Delicious breakfast of HUGE omelettes and warm baguettes with jam, they also had a really nice children’s menu – my daughter had a enormous beautiful plate of waffles with fruit.

That is the best from our trip and I hope we travel back again to explore more and enjoy more of the great restaurants around the city! I also can’t wait for our next adventure, hmm what city should we do next?
