“Fun Place for Lunch!”

Madame Gigi Confiserie
Ranked #18 of 32 Dessert in Quebec City
Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 April 2016 via mobile

We were walking around Vieux Quebec and were hungry and just wanted some soup/sandwiches and perhaps a treat and not a long, formal and heavy sit-down meal, where we would need a "dodo" (nap in French) after it. This place fit the bill. Located right on the Rue Sant-Paul, next to the Lapin qui Sautee, a small adorable candy shop on the cobblestone street. We were lured in by the advertisement on the front door for soup/sandwich and coffee for $9.95. The soup was yummy and a nice selection of sandwiches-choice of croissant or French bread-the coffee was just average (not that great French coffee you sometimes find in small coffee shops but fine) but the dessert selection was outstanding. So many choices for my 2 boys and husband. It was the highlight of our meal to choice from these vast selections of chocolates, cakes, macaroons, ice cream or sweet delicacies. We all tried something different and shared. One son had the chocolate and sprinkled-covered marshmallow pop, the other the largest chocolate mousse cake he could find in the store. I had a delicious piece of chocolate with peanut butter inside and my hubby tried a chocolate macaroon. The desserts were not cheap, but since we paid so little for the main meal, we splurged and enjoyed every bit of it. The waitress was very pleasant and patient with our order, and spoke both French and English to us, whatever we preferred, interchanging her language to smooth along communications for the ultimate satisfaction of a meal!

If you like french macarons, you need to check out this gem in the lower Old City. There's also a wide range of delicious baking and a good variety of gelato. It's a nice little spot to sit and enjoy the scenery.

Had lunch here in a visit to QC. Simple lunch but a whole lot of sweets to choose from and take home. Service was also amazing from the owner and her family. She's got some kind of magic because she actually had her children helping out. Definitively recommend it.

The attraction to this store was an elaborate gingerbread house in the window. Upon entering, you see the well-lit cases containing all kinds of cookies, passtries, and candies. From macarons, to croissants, and scones, as well as many chocolates and even butter cookies, it contains many wonders for the eye and the stomach. They also have a regular menu of sandwiches which I hope to try the next time. In addition, there are the many varities of coffee and teat and hot chocolate, just the kind of thing to take the chill off after shopping. The staff were warm and welcoming, and especaially helpful in describing the ingredients of the various macarons. Certainly a place I will come back to.

Visited this restaurant for light lunch with three friends. Soup, sandwich and a good cup of tea, which was just right! The price quoted was the price paid and the staff were very efficient, hard working and very friendly. There were other items on the menu as well as a good selection of chocolates and treats.
