Epicerie Richard

I broke my toothbrush the first morning we were in Vieux-Québec and struck out looking for a grocery store. Nearby (well, everything in Vieux-Québec is nearby) I found Epicerie Richard. From the apartment it is just past Monument aux Communautés Religieuses Enseignantes.

This is a little grocery store right out of France. There are even flower boxes on the upstairs windows and chairs out front to rest in.

During our visit we got everything there from a toothbrush to Cokes and snacks.

Aux Anciens Canadiens

We had eaten at Aux Anciens Canadiens before and wanted to go back. Like most of Vieux-Québec it was just a short walk from our apartment.

The building was built in 1675 and still has that ancient feel with low ceilings and narrow stairs. There was a mix of tourists and locals the night we were there.

Don't miss the maple syrup pie.

Le Chic Shack

We had lunch at Le Chic Shack which was recommended by a friend of our daughter.

Le Chic Shack is in the front of the Le Musée du Fort at 15 Rue du Fort. It has outside seating but we were glad to take an inside seat looking out the front so we could people watch.

While the recommendation was for their lobster burgers we had a regular burger and a chicken sandwich. We shared a "small" order of fries and left half of them.

They have wonderful milk shakes and locally made colas. I had the cola and it tasted like a mix of Coke and a fruity tea. Very good.

Pub St-Patrick

The night we arrived in Vieux-Québec we set out looking for Chez Boulay but ended up at Pub St. Patrick's due to the rain. Just as well as the Harp was great!

Pub St. Patrick is a very Irish pub near our apartment at 1200 Rue Saint-Jean. I couldn't find a date for the building but from the appearance it must have been 1600s or 1700s.

We had fish and chips and bangers and mash. With the rain outside we felt like we were in Ireland.
