Buffet de L'Antiquaire Review

Hearty home cooking, generous portions, and rock-bottom prices have made this no-frills, diner-style eatery a Lower Town institution. As the name suggests, it's in the heart of the antiques district. In summer it has a small sidewalk terrace where you can sit and watch the shoppers stroll by. It's also a good place to sample traditional Quebecois dishes such as pea soup and cipaille (a deep-dish layered pie using poultry, meat, or seafood). The sugar pie, crepes, and other desserts are homemade and delicious.

    Delicious Authentic Canadian Cuisine

    really good, affordable peasant canadian food. Low key atmosphere, right along the river, in the heart of lower town, antiques district. Husband had the meat pie - it was a huge serving! I had the chicken kabob - very good also. The vegetables were my favorite. After being on a cruise ship for a week, it was the simple fare that tasted good! I wanted to try poutine, in theory, but not after all that cruise food!

    Great value!!!!

    Here's the deal. Sometimes when you are travelling you just don;t want to think a lot during a meal. Especially breakfast. This place is great, simple traditional foo for great prices. It's like an old NYC style deli ala Quebec. Breakfast is great and the surprise of their home made strawberry jam can't be beat. Good price, good food and no thought...my kind of breakfast. We returned for lunch. The Poutine was yummy (hey, it's poutine, fries gravy and cheese...don't over think it). Pea soup was perfect. And the layered potato meat dish mentioned in the review was excellent. The BIG down side, the canned vegetables (Peas...yuck).... The daily specials are reliably tasty as well! The wait staff are all having fun and they have the "service with a smile" thing down pat!
