Great places for a classic weekday breakfast in Quebec City

When you grab a quick breakfast on your way to work, are you fancying something other than a muffin, croissant or pastry? Here are the best places where you can enjoy a classic "2 eggs with bacon" breakfast on weekdays (and even on the weekend, for some!).

Cafe Roma

1
782, rue Saint-Joseph E, Québec, QC G1K 3C3

Nothing in this large, modestly decorated locale suggests that you will be served excellent small roasted potatoes and slices of bacon crisped to perfection, yet this is what you will find here, along with a bonus smile and one of the best lattes in town.

Buffet De L'Antiquaire

2
95, rue Saint-Paul, Québec, QC G1K 3V8

A breakfast must-see is the Buffet de l'Antiquaire, where you can interact with regulars and tourists. Here, you can enjoy a classic breakfast on weekdays or weekends, morning, midday or evening. Do not miss the homemade bread toast and homemade jam!

Chez Victor St-Paul

3
140-300, rue Saint-Paul, Québec, QC G1K 7R1

Several Chez Victor establishments, known for being the region’s pioneers of the gourmet burger, now offer breakfast, including the St. Paul Street location. While they offer a unique breakfast burger, we assure you the classics are not being overlooked.

Café Krieghoff

4
1091, av Cartier, Québec, QC G1R 2S6

A staple on Cartier Street for decades, Café Krieghoff is often frequented by regulars who come in to sip a long espresso or read their newspaper before going to work. It honours the classic two eggs and bacon combo, but you may be tempted by their pancakes!

Café Restaurant Au Bonnet D'Âne

5
298, rue Saint-Jean, Québec, QC G1R 1P1

When stopping at Bonnet d'Âne, the only risk you run is not wanting to leave - especially if you have breakfast on the shady terrace on a summer day!

Le Hobbit Bistro

6
700, rue Saint-Jean, Québec, QC G1R 1P9

Although it’s a bistro cuisine at night, Le Hobbit offers tasty, classic breakfast selections in the morning. A bonus: a place on the terrace allows you to watch the passersby.

Restaurant L'Alcyon Inc

7
577, boul Charest O, Québec, QC G1N 2B7

You’ll find no pretentiousness here: bacon and "tites sausages" (little sausages) reign supreme and, while the customer base is modest on weekdays, you will need to wait in line if you visit on the weekend.

Les Trois Garçons

8
1084, rue Saint-Jean, Québec, QC G1R 1S4

Three young owners, all from restaurateur families, have created a restaurant in their image: relaxed, friendly and welcoming. On weekday mornings, the service is fast and efficient, perfect for a hurried breakfast. On the weekend, they like to relax and stretch breakfast over time.

To take full advantage of the relaxing hours that weekends offer us, nothing beats an out-of-the-ordinary brunch. With carefully presented dishes and a menu that is sometimes refined, breakfast is about dressing nicely while enjoying a relaxed attitude.
Grab your favourite bottle of wine and head to one of these Asian bring-your-own-wine restaurants in downtown Quebec City for a meal sans headache. Each place has a little something that makes it charming and a specialty that will keep you coming back.
