Eating St-Roch!

l

I'll be staying at Hotel Pur, in St-Roch, and would like to know more about stuff in the hotel's immediate proximity. I want to stay in the St-Roch hood if I can. Clocher Penche and Bossus have been discussed here, but I'm curious about other places.

Has anyone eaten at Versa [http://www.versarestaurant.com/]?

What about the restaurant at Hotel Pur? I hear it's open for breakfast / lunch now, not dinner yet. Anyone eaten there?

Where is the best coffee?

And the best cocktail?

Any other good eats in the hood? Any new spots to check out? I am looking for another lunch and dinner to plan, possibly a breakfast. (The hood's best croissant would be great!

)

Merci!

    We've eaten a wild mushroom tasting menu at Les Jardins Sauvages
    http://www.jardinssauvages.com/
    that was quite memorable. I'm a stranger in those parts (also, my friend drove while I just sat back, deadhead and enjoyed the ride) and can't say how close it is to the town proper. Its also a bring your own (wine, beer) place.
    Check their website as they aren't always open.

      Just so we don't end up sending anyone on a wild mushroom chase, leboni was inquiring about the St-Roch district in Quebec City, not about villages in the Lanaudière region.

        Thanks, carswell, for the clarification. Indeed and I am in the city of Quebec. Just had brunch at Cafe du Clocher Penche. Wow. Soft-boiled
        egg (actually more medium), rich blood sausage and my first ever piglet loaf. So far so good here! More tips are welcome!

          Much to my chagrin...
          "...Versa...best coffee...best cocktail..." all should have been tip offs...
