Thanks! Staying at Rialto - so Venuto parfait!
I like any and all kinds of food- and drink .
I just like it to be worth eating . Canada usually works for me. What's special . Will be returning my car after Tofino so will be on foot - but we are not afraid of walking!

Looking for all 3 meals. ideas?

Help! Quebec City to Havre St. Pierre (Mingan) & Natashquan- delicious and casual

Susanne. So glad you are doing this. i love this thing. (Now I can spell Susanne.)
If this is public, I might add that Bolee , in Tadoussac, WAS a good place, quite local, exceeded expectations as the menu is sort of hum drum . Sort a neighborhood bistro, well prepared, not edgy. They did scallops and duck very well and the bakery below became our every morning place for coffee and pastry or bread filled with hazelnuts, chocolate YUm which was great with the coffee. I am replying to the only orther post which I found which were like, 2007 - old!

Definitely La Boheme cafe in Tadoussac is the upbeat and great food choice although I wish it were an early dinner instead.(le Bateau is buffet like and we did not go as i am scared by buffets!) If you go to Les Escoumins instead we had a fab lunch - last week- at the Chocolaterie/Sandwiches (!) in center of town across from the harbor.Their sign says, Chocolaterie Belge, but it is really called something like Chocolaterie Le Reve Doux .I LOVE that part of Canada and will go to Baie Comeau next trip so please let me know.

Charlevoix

Thanks. I liked that as well. I like L'Estampilles...for your next time there. I am eager to go up there again next week! All the way to the fjord.

Charlevoix

did you find any gems? I am on my way to the area, maintenant!

Saquenay and Lac St Jean. ANY ideas???

To poumonsauvage..Thanks so much. it is so hard to put together a trip up there for one who is pathetic in la/le? langue de francais

Saquenay and Lac St Jean. ANY ideas???

Thanks so much. (merci). It seems to be seulement en francais but that is ok. I visited Tadousac and appreciate the recommendation. We have taken all the little hikes there and stayed at Hotel T. - they upgraded us to the best room in the hotel!...but I have wanted another place to eat. It was ok there, but nothing to write home about. Now, maybe I will go and spend a few days back in that town and stay there. Any other food or lodging to recommend?

Saquenay and Lac St Jean. ANY ideas???

You are such a peach to respond! This is a tough place to research and i love going there. Please try L'Estampilles in Baie St Paul. It has become a destination for us all the way from Cape Cod. But I really like venturing further north if I am going that far. Parc du Saguanay and the Haute Gorges at La Malbaie ar on for a return in June when I see Lac St Jean for the first time. Merci Merci merci

Saquenay and Lac St Jean. ANY ideas???

I visit Baie St Paul and the The Eastern Townships and want to spend more time up at Saquenay, La Baie , etc, but no idea where to stay/eat. Have not had much luck up there. Even one good lodging with food worth eating would work.

Baie St. Paul

did you get to L'Estampilles?
