Enjoy some hot tea in Quebec City

Besides being more and more fashionable, tea is good for the body and goes wonderfully with a good conversation. You can find tea everywhere, but here are some nice locations where you will not be served Salada!

Maison de Thé Camellia Sinensis

1
624, rue Saint-Joseph E, Québec, QC G1K 3B9

Its origins in Montreal, this shop is a pioneer in the search for exceptional teas. Located on rue Saint-Joseph East and recently renovated, Camellia Sinensis offers an immense wall of infusions for all tastes, to be enjoyed on site or to bring home. Their selection includes white, green, black, pu-erh, oolong and herbal tea. Warning: there is no WiFi and it is on purpose – you go there to relax!

Sebz

67, boul René-Lévesque E, Québec, QC G1R 2A9

This tea lounge on boulevard René-Lévesque East has an impressive array of fresh teas, in addition to specializing in pu-erh (aged teas). It is a place where you can take your time and even complement your tea with a savoury bite; Asian snacks, mochi and flavourful snacks complete the hot drink menu.

La Lièvre Et La Tortue

1200, 3E av, Québec, QC G1L 2X7

3rd Avenue in Limoilou is proud to have witnessed the rise of the first English-style tea shop in town (which is not foremost an actual "shop" per se). It serves sweet and savoury scones, as well as cakes and pies that accompany a selection of traditional “4 o’clock” teas.

Nektar Cafeologue

235, rue Saint-Joseph E, Québec, QC G1K 3B1

Yes, it is indeed a café, on rue Saint-Joseph East, but they sell excellent teas, including herbal teas from the Camellia Sinensis shop. You can also enjoy an excellent matcha latte made from real green tea powder (as opposed to sweet green syrup, as is often the case).

Brulerie Limoilou

4
501, 3E av, Québec, QC G1L 2W4

This is café – or rather, in this case, brûlerie (coffee house) – serves quality tea. You can settle in at one of the six locations in town (St. Roch, Vieux-Limoilou, Saint-Jean, Sainte-Foy, Vanier or Limoilou) and sip a brew, especially if it is at the end of a session!

Fairmont Le Château Frontenac

5
1 rue des Carrières, QUEBEC CITY, QC G1R 4P5

An upscale restaurant in the famous Fairmont Le Château Frontenac hotel (on rue des Carrières), Champlain offers English tea served with savoury appetizers, scones and sweets. English tea is served only on Saturdays and you can even visit as a family, as a children's version is served to children 12 years and under.

Renard Et La Chouette

6
125, rue Saint-Vallier O, Québec, QC G1K 1J9

A few doors away from its big brother, Le Pied Bleu, the bar Le renard et la chouette, on Saint-Vallier West, is the obvious choice if you are craving tea, in addition to being a bit thirsty. In the morning, you can enjoy your tea with a homemade scone (which is worth a visit in itself).

Becoming a parent is often synonymous with "brunching often." When you have kids, it’s just that much easier to go out for lunch than for a three-hour dinner! Here are are a few places where the brats are welcome, without skimping on quality or ambiance for mum and dad.
Coffee fanatics will tell you: to test the talent of a barista (or "master of the coffee machine"), nothing beats an espresso. So, prepare your small cups, because the following establishments will give you quite a caffeine boost!
