COVID-19: 11 Great Options for Take-Out or Delivery in Quebec City

Where to get ramen, poutine, and more during the shutdown

View as Map

As is the case across much of the world right now, numerous restaurants and all bars in Quebec City are closed down to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.

However, restaurants are allowed to remain open for take-out and delivery service, and some in the provincial capital are doing just that. From ramen to Portuguese chicken, here are a few good bets.

This map is not an exhaustive list of restaurants currently open in Quebec City — it’s best to check different restaurants’ social media pages to find out if they’re open. If your favourite is closed, there are likely still ways to support them: some restaurants sell their own merch (such as t-shirts and tote bags), and most establishments offer gift cards.

While it’s officially a café, Smith has quite the selection of edible options available out of its Limoilou and Belvédère locations. Expect full-sized lasagnes, Shepherd’s pies, quiches, and chicken pot pies — it’s best to order in advance for full-sized meals (which can be delivered, too), but on the spot take-out is available for coffee, pastries, and smaller things.

While it’s officially a purveyor of gourmet sausages, this St-Roch shop sits somewhere between a deli counter an épicerie. Expect an excellent array of prepared and ready-to-eat options from smoked meat to sauerkraut, olives, and a tidy selection of craft beers and Quebec wines, if you’re looking to skip the SAQ lines. It’s take-out only; no delivery, and they’re open daily from late morning to early evening.

Tora-Ya Ramen

Quebec City’s best ramen spot is offering soul-warming noodle soups during the coronavirus outbreak, as well as other small bites like karaage (fried chicken) and gyoza (dumplings). Take-out only (no delivery), from 11:30 a.m. until 7 or 8 p.m. (depending on the day), Monday to Saturday.

Pied Bleu

This Lyon-style bouchon is offering a substantial menu of rich French fare, which you can order online: think duck cassoulet, tartiflette, an array of pâtés, and tarte tatin for dessert; full menus are available too. You can pick up any day at the restaurant or at Au Roi de Boudin’s stand in the Grand Marché du Québec, or else delivery is available to central neighbourhoods such as Limoilou, Vanier, and Saint-Sauveur. Deliveries further afield are an option if you order a day in advance.

Diner Saint-Sauveur

As the name suggests, this restaurant is doing char-grilled Portuguese-style chicken slathered in piri-piri sauce with fries on the side, for pick-up or delivery across a sizable chunk of the city. Starting March 31, it’s open for lunch (11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.) and dinner (5 to 9 p.m.) most days.

Hip wine bar Buvette Scott is operating in tandem with its Portuguese-influenced younger sibling Sardines to offer take-out options on a daily basis (no delivery). The petite menu includes house-made focaccia, an octopus-bean stew, shrimp bisque, and a lasagne — given the 2 to 6 p.m. opening hours, it’s a heat-up-at-home kind of situation. Call ahead for orders.

Gaël Vidricaire Pâtisseries

OK, don’t expect to get a full meal from this Montcalm pâtisserie, but you can indulge in some of the capital’s best sweets, with a new menu of tarts, cakes, and other desserts sent out by email each week. Delivery is available within a ten kilometre radius on the same day, if you order by noon.
