“On of our favortie place in Quebec city.”
Reviewed 17 April 2013

This bakery and pastry shop is unique in the city.
The minute you enter the premises you nose picks up the smell of churned butter that is used in most of the baking goods on display.
The variety of European-like cookies and pastries offerings is just amazing. Everything tastes good. The problem is making up your mind on what is the most appealing to your tastebuds.
I have not tried their sandwiches, good for a snack but they are next on my list.
There are a few chairs and tables where you can stop and rest for a moment and slowly experience the taste of their pastries.

“Best Bakery”
Reviewed 16 April 2013

The selection on offer in this establishment is wonderful. Lots and lots of tasty pastries. My favourite is the savoury pancakes. A good selection in Quebec. Staff are always very friendly.

“BEST savoury crepe I've ever had! (and I've had a lot of crepes)”
Reviewed 28 February 2013

This incredible bakery had so many delicious options it was almost impossible to make a decision. Whether you're looking for something savoury or sweet they've got something to please everyone. My boyfriend and I shared a crepe stuffed with cheeses, ham, mushrooms and the most amazing béchamel sauce. By far the best savoury crepe we've ever had! For dessert we shared a delicious almond and chocolate pastry. I almost had one of those "When Harry Met Sally" diner moments as I was eating this amazing food. I highly recommend visiting Le Croquembouche at least once if you're in Québec.

“Le Croquembouche - a GREAT bakery”
Reviewed 17 February 2013 via mobile

Le Crquembouche is a great bakery! Great pastries, good coffee, phenomenal service!

Great place to take the kids for a quick bite on your way to Le Carnival, touring Old Quebec or if you are on your way out to Village aux Sport. The people are fantastic, especially when you are there for your 2nd & 3rd visits!

Priced well, the pastries taste very good!
