Chez Temporel

Chez Temporel takes the French café-croissant to a new level and gives it a Canadian twist. The croissants are as crispy and buttery as one could hope, and the artists and students who frequent the place sure know it. Added bonus: the food options go way beyond French pastries and include quiches and salads, among others.


Small streets and tiny cafes: Quebec City might as well have invented the concept of coziness. Choices range widely: traditional or Americanized coffee shops, small cafes and bakeries with a Parisian feel, trendier and inventive new places — Quebec has it all. Enjoy sunny terraces in the summer, and during the very cold winter coffee shops can be a lifesaver.
