A must for great shopping and food!
If your last visit to Québec City was a few years back, you won't want to miss the new Saint-Roch district!
With the addition of the colorful Jardin de Saint-Roch and new-look factories and buildings, the whole area has been completely transformed! Restaurants, bars, and trendy boutiques have sprung up left and right, putting a whole new face on one of the city's oldest neighborhoods.
Rue Saint-Joseph offers a vibrant mix of small boutiques and department stores you won't find anywhere else in the city! It's the perfect place to while away the hours.
Delis, bakeries, home decor stores, and even a tea room await!
One store well worth a visit is Benjo, the best toy store in the entire province, as any kid will tell you! It has games and stuffed toys for every taste, plus lots to do and discover, including a little train that runs through the store, and an arts & craft café that are all out of this world.
With all that running around, sooner or later you're going to get hungry, right? The neighborhood's bars and restaurants are just as hip as the stores around them, with innovative fare to match.
Try Le Cercle for its inspired market cuisine, electrifying atmosphere and cultural events.
Unless you have a penchant for Le Clocher Penché Bistrot? This bistro features unpretentious but very tasty cuisine.
Looking for a place for a late afternoon drink? The Versa Restaurant – Bar has an exclusive wine list, a great selection of Mojitos and the only oyster bar in town.
Lovers of handcrafted beer will want to quench their thirst either at micro brasserie La Barberie, a microbrewery that has become something of a neighborhood institution, or at Korrigane Brasserie Artisanale.
Saint-Roch is also a nice place for holiday shopping.
From late November to early January, rue Saint-Joseph is illuminated by blue lights. Add the tallest Christmas tree in town (50 feet!) and you've got the perfect winter setting.
