I may be in the minority but I don't think so. We've been to it and its sister restaurants. Very good but not "worth a detour". The owners are very charming - I'll have a look at the article.

Yikes ... thanks for the warning. Guess that's crossed off the list.

In QC, go to Chez Temporel for croissants. First time I had them and thought they were, by a long shot, the best I've had. Returned years later and they were still phenomenal. In the heart of things, yet on a quiet, obscure street that hardly anyone ventures dwen.

Thanks for this tip, we're heading up there in 3 weeks -- is it a boulangerie or a true cafe with sandwiches and more, thinking lunch as our hotel provides breakfast

Chez Temporel is open starting at 11am for lunch and early dinner with soups, sandwiches and other light meals. But croissants are not just for breakfast! They are worth getting any time of day, even as a snack or instead of dessert. Photos of the menu are on their facebook page, linked in Google Maps.

Oh we know croissants are just not for breakfast, so we'll have to have something else for breakfast at our manoir, one croissant a day is more than I should have!
Thx-

Well, we had friends who dined recently at Brassiere 701 and loved it. I guess we'll see who is right.
