“Pizza and pop on rue St-Jean”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

One 10" pizza and a pop bottle for $10 in an area called by the locals as the "pink" quarters. We ordered two all dressed pizzas and the total, including tax and tips, was under $25. A 5 minute walk outside the old city walls takes you to this cafeteria style restaurant. Make sure you read the sign, albeit in french, about what is included with the meal.

Good deal on pizza, if you are willing to leave the touristic part of the city.

“Precooked pasta fresh made sauce”
Reviewed 19 June 2013 via mobile

Can't read the reviews in French but they must have had a bad cook. Yes, the pasta appeared to be precooked and just heated up in boiling water when we ordered, but the sauce was made as we watched with fresh ingredients over a gas burner. The pasta was not over or under cooked. With over 20 pasta choices and over 25 sauce choices, I can't imagine you won't find something you like. Salt conscious? definitely not over salty like many fast foods. Upscale fast food atmosphere with a mix of tourists and business people during the lunch hour. Good for a quick pasta lunch.
