My husband I ended up coming to this bakery everyday on our 4 day stay. The croissants were fabulous! Our favorite treat was to share a chocolate twist, Amazing! Recommend this place for sandwiches too.

One of my favorite places in Quebec City! Love their buttery, flaky croissants. We've tried other treats there too, including "gelati" - all delicious. It can be very busy with long lines and the dining area can be a bit hectic at peak times. Other...More

Wonderful pastries! I had the best chocolate eclair and my husband had a delicious caramel one. We came back the following day for breakfast and had a scrumptious lemon bichon and my husband has a great apple turnover. The coffee, ruglar and latte, were delicious....More

We stopped in for an dinner dessert. Very good place with a lot of options! We got two different items and split them. Stop in if you’re in the area.

As a big Barefoot Contessa fan, I saw Ina rave about Paillard's bread when she is in Paris. So when I saw there was one in Quebec City, I had to go! Of course, she was right. And the pastries were wonderful, too. Wish I...More

We've been to Paillard twice and still love it. Great food, nice personnel and just a fun place to enjoy yummy food. Plus it's a bakery, so you can pick up a couple of pastries and le pain (bread) for later.

It’s hectic! It lacks the quaintness which makes bakery breakfasts truly excellent. There is a lot of commotion, long lines and impatient clients. For croissants to go - please yes. To eat in, no.

This is a bakery that has good sandwiches,soups and pasties. It is very reasonably priced. The bread for the sandwiches is made on site. Long family style tables.

This place is definitely worth a stop. When the croissants are this good you know everything else is as well. Yum!! Stopped here for breakfast and glad we did.

The bread is maybe the best in Quebec city and that is saying a lot. We did not eat there but they have a nice menu for breakfast or lunch. It is self-serve with a small number of tables or you can take out.

My son has Celiac. We were there end of June 2018. They did not have Gluten free breads or pastries. Grocery stores did have Gluten-free sandwich bread.

We didn’t ask for the recipe. I am not sure if they give their trade secrets away but it needed no butter! It was perfect!!

They were around $2 each. Not the best macarons I have had, but it was nice to try the maple one.
