What a great condo - a short walk from the center of town in the Saint Roch section of Quebec. The condo is spacious with a definite cool factor - exposed brick, a Juliette balcony overlooking the lively street below, a nicely remodeled kitchen and 2 comfortable bedrooms. A steep staircase to the front door - not for the faint of heart - added to the charm. The area is great, Saint Henri - a pricey bakery on the corner, has the most decadent confections - try the grapefruit/ rosemary beignets/donuts and the chocolate/ pistachio pastry and an Americano - pure bliss for just under $8. Poutineville, across the street from the condo, is always hopping and offers a Quebec fave - Poutine, a brown gravy, served over fries or hashbrowns, with other yummy toppings. Reasonably priced and also try the Sangrias which were also superb! The nicest waiter, Sebastian, made this a two-time stop! The Metro grocery store is up the street one way and tons of shops and restaurants line Rue d' St. Joseph. A 15 minute walk across the street from Metro Marche, under the overpasses/ highways, to the stairs, lands you up in old town. A short walk to the east to the walled part of the city; charm at every turn. Tons of shops and restaurants - Maisan Epicerie - west/outside the walled area, is the MOST adorable small market we've ever seen. Teas, wines, Maple Products (Produit d' Erable in French - took me a minute to figure out what that meant - it's on every store you'll see) and tons of beautiful delicacies - I wanted to get a pillow & a cot and stay the night. The Frotenac on the waterfront is a must see - the castle-like hotel is enormous and is the poshest hotel we've ever seen. We had dinner at The Sam, their lower priced restaurant, and spent $130 - it was amazing. They failed to serve us our cheese plate for an appetizer ($24) and we were charged for it but didn't realize it until later that night - that was disappointing, but everything else was grand! (Probably an honest mistake, but noteworthy nonetheless.) As a day trip - check out St. Anne's Basillica - 25 minutes in the country-side and 30 minutes to Ile d' Orleans - farms, wineries, fromageries, Boulin Boulangerie, yummy frites stands and views of the St. Lawrence that will make your jaw drop! So charming!! Enjoy your stay here in Quebec - we highly recommend it!
