FOR THE TOP BAKERIES (BOULANGERIES) IN QUEBEC CITY
Best Boulangeries for tourists with little time
In the old city, a great bakery to rest your tired feet after walking and exploring the lovely city walls of Quebec
Le Boite Pain
Located on Saint Joseph E, this is a local favourite where tourists can feel the essence of a a French speaking nation.
Au Pain Grüel
If you walk over to Saint-Jean Baptiste neighbourhood in search of the Chocolate factory, crepes and an old-school European General store, you must pop into Au Pain Gruel. It’s not fancy, but the bread is loved by locals – hipster feel and great nearby coffee too!
Le Croquembouche is the bakery that many locals will tell you to visit if you want something less commercial (Paillard) and LOVE eclairs. A huge array of fine chocolates, truffles and other delicious pastries
