Café Apollo

Opened by a Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré couple a little over a year ago, Café Apollo (a wink to their son, Paul) soon became the go-to address among the region’s locals and visitors. At the heart of the action, it is steps away from Le Sanctuaire and the new Quai Sainte-Anne, and it’s the perfect place to sit down and enjoy a good cup of coffee and sink your teeth into a pastry, or one of their famous fancy grilled cheeses.

Chez Marie

You know that feeling of being hugged by the smell of a freshly baked loaf of bread, when you walk into a bakery? Well, at Chez Marie, this smell is queen, all the time. Loads of loaves of bread are baked daily, inside this 1652 house located in Château-Richer. During the summer months, it’s baked outdoors, in a 150-year-old oven. Donuts, brioche and turnovers are added to the selection in the warmer months, to satisfy every single customer.

Délices Royales

This reinvented ice cream shop and pizzeria has every craving covered − from sweet to salty! Occupying the municipality of L’Ange-Gardien’s old general store (entirely renovated and refreshed in 2015), the restaurant is still the village’s go-to place, in a decor that’s both picturesque and friendly. Mainly an artisan ice cream shop and pizzeria, you’ll also enjoy their sweets, specialty coffees and unique snacks.

Les Bonyeuses

Formerly known as À Chacun son pain, bakery Les Bonyeuses turned over a new leaf in May 2022, and it still carries the blissful breads from its previous lineup. Along with their delicious gourmet sandwiches, croissants and viennoiseries, they also prepare a divine vegan brownie that’s simply decadent. In the bread department, let yourself be tempted by their hemp loaf’s truly distinctive flavor.

Les Trois Becs

A quick 5-minute drive from Mont-Sainte-Anne, Les Trois Becs’ catering service is outstanding, and it’s available to anyone interested in enjoying a meal prepared by chefs, without having to plan an event. Many homemade options are available for take out, and they carry a range of local products. A great address to drop by if planning a stay at the mountain and you want to eat quality food, in the comfort of your chalet. It’s definitely the place to treat yourself.


Bakery Praline & Chocolat

For anyone with a sweet tooth, Praline & Chocolat takes it to the next level. Located in Château-Richer, on the Route de la Nouvelle-France (also a great stop for cyclists), the bakery is renowned for its famous croissants but also for its decadent, delicate and authentic pastries. Cakes, pies, macaroons, chocolates, gelatos and homemade bread − everything to satisfy your cravings! Our favourite: their chocolate-raspberry pie! It’s perfectly dosed in terms of sweetness and is suitable for all occasions.

Vineyard Domaine L’Ange Gardien

A stop at the Vignoble Domaine l’Ange Gardien is a total must, where they have been finely crafting wines since 2007. The best of what Côte-de-Beaupré has to offer.

The vineyard is located on the terraced hillside of L’Ange-Gardien and is easily accessed via route 138, and only 20 minutes from downtown Quebec City.

Psst! Do taste or take home their Côte-de-Beaupré red, the 2022 Coupe des nations gold medal award winner. Delicious, no less! Cheers!

Arthur Cauchon Farm

The name Arthur Cauchon goes hand in hand with rigorous labor, a love of the land and freshly picked or transformed products resulting from diversified farming.

Stop at the farm shop on avenue Royale to fill up on fruit ketchup, apple butter, maple products and seasonal produce! U-pick is also in full swing during the apple and pear season.

Le Comte de Roussy Farm

Compte de Roussy farm is still a well-known secret, even if it’s on all four culinary tourism routes around Quebec City! The farm offers a wide variety of freshly picked or transformed products. You can also opt for U-pick apples and pears, when in season. It’s an excellent place well off the beaten path for practising this activity! Bonus: a breathtaking view of the St. Lawrence River and Île d’Orléans while enjoying a comforting piece of homemade pie, afterwards!
