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 colourful Jardin de Saint-Roch and new-look factories and buildings, the whole area has been completely transformed! Restaurantsbars, and trendy boutiques have sprung up left and right, putting a whole new face on one of the city's oldest neighbourhoods.

Shopping in Cool, Urban Surroundings

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.

Feeling Hungry?

With all that running around, sooner or later you're going to get hungry, right? The neighbourhood's bars and restaurants are just as hip as the stores around them, with innovative fare to match.

Try Le Clocher Penché Bistrot, this bistro features unpretentious but very tasty cuisine.

Lovers of handcrafted beer will want to quench their thirst either at micro brasserie La Barberie, a microbrewery that has become something of a neighbourhood institution, or at Korrigane Brasserie Artisanale.

A Fairytale Atmosphere for Holiday Shopping

Saint-Roch is also a nice place for holiday shopping.

From early December to late February, a light path is deployed on rue Saint-Joseph. Add the tallest Christmas tree in town (50 feet!) and you've got the perfect winter setting.
