Le Paingrüel

375 Rue St.-Jean
Quebec City, Quebec, G1R 1N8, Canada
TEL: 418-522-7246

Le Paingrüel is one of the most popular boulangeries in Quebec City. Located in the heart of the St.-Jean-Baptiste district, the bakery is housed in a red-brick building with a wood-and-glass storefront on the first floor. Inside, the shop contains exposed brick walls, a long wooden bar, and wicker baskets filled with freshly baked loaves of bread. Using old-fashioned artisanal methods and more than eight types of flour, Le Paingrüel bakes about 30 varieties of breads and pastries, including sourdough loaves, cranberry chocolate buns, and banana chocolate croissants. Arriving early is a must, as the fresh breads sell out quickly.

Insider Tip:

After visiting Le Paingrüel, tour the neighboring Église St.-Jean-Baptiste, a Second Empire church built in 1884 with Italian marble statues, soaring columns, and 36 stained-glass windows.
