2 nights in Quebec City
I'm going to be spending 2 nights in Quebec City next month with my girlfriend. We're staying in the old part of town. I was wondering if anyone could suggest nice, cozy places to eat (lunch, coffee, dinner) around the area. We're on a limited budget, so places <$20 pp are preferable, but we're willing to splurge on something special.
The Cafe du Monde in the lower city is my favorite family-style restaurant anywhere. It's worth the walk and the funicular ride. Reservations are a good idea.
The crepe place is called Casse-Crepe Breton, and I second the suggestion. Get there early, as there can be a line.
I also like Le Petit Latin Coin.
My favorite place is Chez Temporel, especially for their croissants and coffee. I proclaim them as a WORLD's BEST. But they prepare a few light meals as well which are usually good and tasty.
Other than that, the crepe place on rue St Jean (casse-croute Breton?) is a sure thing and has a lively scene.
My suggestion is to not splurge and keep it simple. That will almost surely work out best for you.
