The best weekend brunches in Quebec City

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.

Le Clocher Penché

1
203, rue Saint-Joseph E, Québec, QC G1K 3B1

Year after year, the Clocher Penché stays a step ahead of the competition for brunch, lunch and dinner. The wine list is refined, the service is impeccable and the atmosphere is relaxed, making it a favourite for everyone. It's the real thing for brunch too, with dishes that amaze both the eyes and the taste buds. For a special occasion, or just for fun, a brunch at the Clocher Penché is a must.

Café du Monde

2
84, rue Dalhousie, Québec, QC G1K 8M5

For brunch with stunning river views, head to Café du monde! Typical of French bistros, the atmosphere is a bit noisy, but still friendly. It is important to highlight the Eggs Benedict, which rank among the best in Quebec City.

Le Pied Bleu Charcuterie

3
179, rue Saint-Vallier O, Québec, QC G1K 1J9

This small establishment of the Saint-Sauveur neighbourhood has distinguished itself by ranking among the 10 best new restaurants in Canada in 2013 by enRoute magazine. In order to get the full experience, visit as part of a group and enjoy their "sample" formula brunch: dishes follow, one after the other, offering a feast you’re sure to remember. We cannot leave without tasting their boudin (black/blood pudding), which has received numerous awards in French competitions since its inception.

Ciel! Bistro-Bar Tournant

4
1225 cours du Général-de Montcalm, Québec, QC G1R 4W6

To discover or rediscover Quebec City in quite a different way, you can enjoy a three-course brunch at Ciel! of the Restos Plaisir restaurant group. Savouring the cuisine of Chef David Forbes is as much an experience as discovering the panorama of the city from atop the Hôtel Concorde, performing a gentle 360º rotation, enabling one to discover the city’s attractions in a new light.

Chez Boulay Bistro Boréal

5
1110, rue Saint-Jean, Québec, QC G1R 1S4

Property of Chef Jean-Claude Boulay and his protégé Arnaud Marchand, the restaurant Chez Boulay is another establishment where the quality is constant, regardless of the time of day. During the weekend brunch, the boreal (northern) flavours are presented with elegance and the large, airy locale always seems sunny, regardless of the weather.

Le Fun En Bouche

6
1073 3E Av, Québec, QC G1L 2X3

In this small Limoilou establishment, run like clockwork by the owners, reservations are required. The menu is short but tasty, and it is best not to request substitutions in the composition of the dishes. Despite this somewhat rigid detail, the quality is always superb, as evidenced by the constant flow of customers on weekends. 

Bistro B

7
1144, av Cartier, Québec, QC G1R 2S5

For those who like careful presentations, Bistro B is definitely worth seeing. Thanks to the restaurant’s location on Cartier Street, you can dine in a chic and relaxed atmosphere before taking advantage of the area’s shopping destinations.

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!).
