Satisfy your sweet tooth in Quebec City

Whether for a coffee-dessert combo or to complete a good meal, it is important to find the right place to fulfill your need for sugar. Here are some places that offer more than a small, dry industrial cupcake and dull scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Bistro B

1144, av Cartier, Québec, QC G1R 2S5

Bistro B, which rapidly became a go-to place on avenue Cartier, is one of the few restaurants in town to have a pastry chef on staff. Available selections vary depending on the chef’s inspiration but they always feature local products - sometimes unusual ones, like mushrooms.

Nina Pizza Napolitaine

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

It is very easy (too easy?) to be a huge fan of the pizza at Nina pizza napolitaine on rue Saint-Anselme. Here, the pizza is cooked in a true Italian wood oven. Imagine the delight when a sweet Nutella treat is made in a similar way. If you are searching for gluten-free treats, know that they also offer a changing selection of gluten-free desserts, which are just as tasty.

Bleu Marine

585 Rue Saint-Jean, Québec, QC G1R 1P5

We love the lightness of the seasonal desserts offered by this excellent bistro on rue Saint-Jean in the Saint-Jean-Baptiste neighbourhood. Their dishes change with the seasons and feature local products prepared with a French touch.

Restaurant La Planque

1027, 3E av, Québec, QC G1L 2X3

3rd Avenue in Limoilou has found its flagship restaurant in La Planque. Although the chef has changed recently (Guillaume St-Pierre left and Olivier Godbout, formerly of Le Circle, stepped in), we know that the creativity and quality remain excellent. You must come by to find out what the new chef has in store for you!

Restaurant Laurie Raphael

117, rue Dalhousie, Québec, QC G1K 9C8

Here at Laurie Raphaël on rue Dalhousie, maple cotton candy that foodies cannot do without. You can request it for dessert, but it’s also available at brunch time during maple season, as folks are obsessed with it! The lucky ones may even be able to try at making one for themselves.

Le Cochon Dingue

46, boul Champlain, Québec, QC G1K 4H7

Cochon Dingue is affordable, of good quality and is the sweet little nook that we have been missing. All four of their locations (boulevard Champlain, boulevard René-Lévesque Est, avenue Maguire and Lebourgneuf) serve the same creations. They don’t reinvent the wheel, but their sugar layer cake with cream is highly satisfactory.

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!
