many choices of places to eat. They are prepared for the tourist and have Menu's at the front outside of all the entry doors. It was appreciated because it helped you decide if this restaurant was for you or not. Stores were all interesting.
Lots of shopping and eating here. The restaurants seem to be lots of variations of the same in a variety of prices. You can get exactly the same meal at several restaurants for reasonable to over prices, so beware! Lots of tourist trinket shops too....More
we spent most of our time in Quebec walking up and down the streets in Haute-Ville. There are some larger commercial stores (Simons) and lots of more independent stores. Tons of souvenir shops. Loads of restaurants. No shortage of sweets.

Old Town is the entire historic district, both Haute (upper) town and lower. Lower is along the river, and is the original, older part of town nice restaurants, hotels, the Musee de la Civilisation, etc. You can walk up steep streets or steps to the Upper town (larger, more restaurants/hotels, Chateau de Frontenac, Plains of Abraham, connected to the rest of Quebec) or take the Funicular. They're just different parts of the same smallish area, like midtown Manhattan and the theatre district.

We walked around the upper and lower town but took a city tour with a tour company to see where we wanted to spend more time. You can call in the visitor centre and get plenty of information that will help you.
