Great take-out food in Quebec City

Where do you go when you don't feel like cooking or are short on time, and don't feel like eating greasy, salty fast food? We've got your answer! Here's where to pick up savoury and healthy snacks at good prices.

Galette Libanaise

880 Rue Père-Marquette, Québec, QC G1S 2A4

On the road to becoming a chain as its total number of locations multiplies (including spots on Grande Allée, Maguire and Sainte-Foy), La Galette libanaise serves authentic street food dishes that are unique to Quebec. Here, soft pita is served like a folded pizza and filled with seasoned meat and fresh accompaniments to satisfy even the most voracious of appetites.

Maison Thailandaise

4307, rue Saint-Félix, Québec, QC G1Y 1X6

Do you feel like having Thai food but are too tired to make it at home? Stop by La Maison Thaï (in Cap-Rouge or on boulevard René-Lévesque East) and choose one of the vacuum-packed meals to be reheated at home. Leave it for six minutes in hot water and you'll think you’re in Bangkok!

Morena Epicerie Traiteur

1040, av Cartier, Québec, QC G1R 2S4

This Italian grocery store and osteria (bistro) on avenue Cartier offers a counter of prepared meals and antipasti, where you can stock up on arancini and sandwiches. We like the "pasta to go" concept, with five kinds of pasta and eight house-made sauces to choose from.

Nina Pizza Napolitaine

410, rue Saint-Anselme, Québec, QC G1K 5T2

This restaurant’s authentic wood oven Neapolitan pizza has quickly elevated itself to cult status through a legion of faithful foodies. If you don’t have time to eat in at their location on rue Saint-Anselme, take it to go by ordering in advance or upon arrival.

Sushi Taxi

813 av Cartier, Québec, QC G1R 2R8

This chain has spread everywhere in Quebec, but in Quebec City, Sushi Taxi remains a safe bet. Although it may not closely resemble the cuisine of its Japanese ancestors, the creative sushi is very fresh and inventive. You can stop by and grab something to eat at the avenue Cartier, Charlesbourg or Lebourgneuf locations.

Les Colocs Café Resto

400E 3Av, Québec, QC G1L 2W1

Both a great bistro and take-out counter, Les Colocs is a pure Limoilou product: unpretentious and warm. Whether from the 3rd Avenue or the chemin de la Canardière location, you can pick up a sandwich of the day or a dish prepared with love, and accompany it with pouding chômeur (poor man's pudding), the best in town.

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!
