"Must" places to eat in Quebec City

felix the hound | May 27, 2009 12:57 PM

We (my wife, our 15 year old and I) are from Edmonton and are going to be visiting Quebec City for a few days starting Friday. We are interested in suggestions for food experiences that are rather unique or “musts” to Quebec or Quebec City. From street food to upscale (but not pretentious) and are prepared to put up with less than ideal service for really good food.

My initial list of places to try ( from a scan of previous posts on CH ) includes:
Le Pain Béni
Brynd for smoked meat
Café du Monde
Le Café du Clocher penché

We are still not sure, however , about these:
Cafe de la Paix
Le Feu Sacré
Ashton for poutine
Le Paris-Brest -
Chez Temporel for croissants
Tatum -for brioche, cinnamon buns and other such pastries Le Graffiti
Le moine échanson for dinner
Le Cercle for Spanish style tapas
Le Aviatics Club for tapas like menu but with French food.
Toast- for upscale worth the price

We don't have very much on street food.

We would appreciate your feedback and recommendations on our choices and more information on all or any additions.
