When it's late and you're still hungry in Quebec City

When those night cravings hit, don’t ignore them on the pretext that everything is closed! Whether it’s after a big night out, post-show, or you’re just plain hungry, there are plenty of great places where you can fill your belly late into the night. Here are a few solid options to get you started.

Taverne Grande-Allée

585 Grande-Allée, Québec, QC G1R 2K4

Located, as the name suggests, on the ultimate street for bars, Grande Allée, Taverne Grande Allée is more of a friendly sports bar with a party atmosphere. It fills up with late-night revellers from the surrounding bars in search of tacos and Southern-style street food, and is a great way to end a night on the town.

Renard Et La Chouette

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

Even though the kitchen of this rue Saint-Vallier Ouest bar is not open too late (until 11 pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays), it's a great place to nibble in a warm, welcoming and often musical atmosphere. The menu changes often, but you can always bet on light, fresh dishes that will satisfy your late-night cravings.

Restaurant Le Projet

2
399, rue Saint-Jean, Québec, QC G1R 1N8

Both a neighbourhood restaurant and bar, Le Projet, on rue Saint-Jean, has a solid selection of beers from Quebec microbreweries, which go well with the poutine (barbecue sauce, please!), juicy burgers and other fast food inspired snacks, always made with fresh, quality products.

Sapristi Bistro Bar

3
1001, rue Saint-Jean, Québec, QC G1R 1R8

On rue Saint-Jean, it can be a challenge to find a late-night option that isn’t a tourist trap. Fortunately, at Sapristi, you'll be avoiding those pricey tourist traps and you can enjoy pizza (also available for takeout), including one topped with pulled pork, where the BBQ sauce made with beer and Quebec cheese. The Mac n' Cheese with five cheeses and bacon will help to soak up drinks you may have been enjoying earlier in the evening.

Casse-Croûte Pierrot

4
109, 10E rue, Québec, QC G1L 2M3

This restaurant is well known to Limoulois as a great place for delicious, traditional fast food. Casse-Croûte Pierrot, on 10th Avenue, has its share of regulars, which is no surprise. It’s open 24 hours (and delivers until 5:30 am) and its poutine comes in gigantic portions!

La Cuisine

5
205, rue de Saint-Vallier E, Québec, QC G1K 3P2

You stay up late on rue Saint-Vallier Est! In an adorably colourful retro-kitsch setting, the team of La Cuisine serves comfort food at ridiculously low prices until late. The menu varies and is always great, but the grilled cheese is always there and well worth a try. Note: L’Autre Cuisine, on rue Myrand, is La Cuisine’s little sister restaurant.
