Easily one of the best brunch places in town and certainly the most popular one! The portions are generous and the explosion of flavors will have you wish Le Clocher Penché opened a restaurant in your town too!

Our hotel told us about Le Clocher Pench. We wanted to find a nice restaurant specializing in French cuisine. The concierge nailed it. My wife and I agreed that this was one of the best meals we have ever had. The restaurant was very quaint and everything on the menu looked incredible.

We were in awe of how good the food was! We came to Le Clocher Penche for brunch and are so happy that we decided on this restaurant. A cozy spot near our hotel so it was perfect, especially considering there was a snow storm! To start we had a complimentary parfait type dish, apple gelatine with a cream crumble... More

I had read many favorable reviews of this restaurant and am so glad we went. It was the best meal we had in Quebec (and we had many good meals). We went on a Friday at lunchtime in December. You really need to reserve a table...I'm so glad we did as the restaurant was full. It is an attractive space... More

Very fresh local food done imaginatively. We had the Benediction (poached egg, fish cake, spaghetti squash, hollandaise sauce) and the Pere Vert (mushroom tart, carmelized onion, spinach, boiled egg, cheese sauce) Highly recommend.

My husband and I had lunch here today. We both ordered off their set lunch menu $17. We both had the soup of the day- a butternut squash which was fabulous. I had the vegetarian plate which had roast eggplant with a miso paste with orzo pasta, tomatoes, cucumber, greens and nuts that had been tossed in a mild vinaigrette.... More

We are coffee lover and still exactly remember that we had taste of latte and espresso here. Very reasonable priced brunch menu on sunday morning which started with coffee, entree and homemade pudding! We love their plating and taste of food. Definetely we will come back here when we travel Quebec!!!

No reservations in case our flights were late, so we were thrilled that they could fit us in. The food was wonderful and the service was friendly and well paced. We had the added bonus that this nice find was a short walk to our hotel. I can easily and highly recommend.

We were thrilled to have this recommended to us, and it only being 2 blocks from our apartment. Great menu, great atmosphere and the food was outstanding. We only planned on one fancy meal out in Quebec city and this did not disappoint. All ingredients were super fresh, and prepared with care and excellence. Plating was a feast for the... More

We had just s bit of dicciculty findings this little jewel, but after figuring out the one way streets, it was easy. A small spot on busy corner with wonderful, fresh offerings, all of which seemed to be different and very tasty.
