Need light/veg friendly lunch recs in Quebec City

Hi all,
My DH is traveling to Quebec City next weekend to play at the Hotel Clarendon jazz bar. It would be great to get some recs for inexpensive/veg friendly lunch spots not *too*far from the hotel. Middle Eastern/falafel would be great, or cafe/sandwich shop. Fish fine, too, but no Asian, please.

  1. I would suggest Chez Temporel. They serve good coffee, breakfasts, salads, soups, quiche, etc. You can find excellent sandwiches to go at the next door grocery Épicerie Couillard. Both are off the tourist paths and locals go there ...

    Casse-Crepe Breton is a nice place too but it's usually very busy during the weekends.

    Those are probably the best options near the Clarendon.

        For coffee, in that area, there's Cafe Tatum 1084 rue St-Jean ( that's nice. Or a bit further on St-Jean there's La Brûlerie St-Jean (3rd on that list
        My personnal favorite is Nektar, but it's a bit further away, talking about 20 min walking, on St-Joseph east (

    2. I forgot to mention Paillard, they also have soups, salads, sandwiches. They also have great pastries and bread. A bit expensive though.
