95 Rue Saint-Paul, Ville de Québec
QC G1K 3V8, Canada
(418) 692-2661
Visit Website

You can brunch all day, every day at Le Buffet de l’Antiquaire, a comfort food haven in the heart of the antiques neighbourhood in Quebec’s Old Port district. The perfect destination for out-of-town guests given the authentic and very traditional Québécois dishes like tourtière, cipaille and pudding chômeur.

3. Échaudé

Copy Link
73 Rue du Sault-au-Matelot, Ville de Québec
QC G1K 3Y9, Canada
(418) 692-1299
Visit Website

Échaudé is a benchmark in bistro fare in the Old Port. The menu offers chic and generous brunch options with white tablecloths as a canvas for elegant, eye-catching signature dishes like the eggs Benedict. Local ingredients shine bright, especially at brunch.

4. Chez Boulay

Copy Link
1110 Rue Saint-Jean, Ville de Québec
QC G1R 1S4, Canada
(418) 380-8166
Visit Website

Chez Boulay’s menu ventures on an authentic flavour trip into the boreal forest, all inside the walls of Old Quebec. Its mission is to use only local ingredients, proscribing olive oil and lemons, and opting for cranberries for acidity and peppery green alder as pepper. The brunch menu features both sweet and savoury options that follow the seasons, with braised meats, vegetables, local cheese, and fish at the core.

5. Le Clocher Penché

Copy Link
203 Rue Saint-Joseph Est, Ville de Québec
QC G1K 3B1, Canada
(418) 640-0597
Visit Website

A simple and perfect bustling hotspot for brunch. Set in a former bank in Saint-Roch in front of a church with a leaning bell tower, the spot is cozy, yet feels like a classic French bistro experience. The menu prefers colourful reinterpretations of lunch rather than breakfast, where every season is a new playground: see the salmon tartare with grapefruit, or beef chuck roast parmentier.

6. Pied Bleu

Copy Link
179 Rue Saint-Vallier O, Ville de Québec
QC G1K 1J9, Canada
(418) 914-3554
Visit Website

A casual joint in Saint-Sauveur famous for large, home-style portions and multiple award-winning blood sausages. For brunch, expect a Bouchon Lyonnais-inspired meal with elements of a typical Québécois breakfast (eggs, ham, bacon, rillettes, beans) and lots of homemade charcuterie.

Copy Link
181 Rue Saint-Vallier E, Ville de Québec
QC G1K 3P2, Canada
(418) 523-0700
Visit Website

QC G1N 1R9, Canada
(418) 682-5849
Visit Website

This mother-daughter adventure is Quebec City’s best-kept secret and a place for all types of eaters. For brunch, half a dozen suggestions are listed on a blackboard, and local produce shines: generous buckwheat waffles with homemade accents of apple purée and maple sugar Chantilly, gently stirred scrambled eggs with a disarmingly silky texture, or a smoked mackerel dish alongside a cabbage salad topped with roasted goat cheese.

1. L'îlot Repère Gourmand
