This week, we launched the first part of a series of episodes showing our employees’ life in Quebec City. Jeff Skalski, Senior Producer, broke the ice. Today, he is listing his 10 favorite spots around Quebec City.
In my top 5 best coffee worldwide. Up there with Blue Bottle. No need to be fancy, just order their regular bean and you will be blown away.
Best Chicken ‘n Waffles in the north. Make sure to go all in with the fried pickles on top.
100,000+ people, 11 days of music spread across dozens of venues. What can possibly go wrong?
Ski into Saint Lawrence River and enjoy this winter wonderland. Have a little extra time? I suggest the 7.5 km sled run down Mont Liguori.
Grab a pint and enjoy the free arcade machines (They even have the classic Konami hit Track & Field!). Oh, and don’t forget to get a bacon shot while you’re there.
Enjoy an afternoon exploring Île-d’Orléans and grab a lunch here. Your appreciation for black currants will go to an all new level. Try their wine and black currant honey.
The icon of Quebec City and a must see. Swing by the 1608 bar inside for a relaxing cocktail (or two!) while enjoying their wide selection of cheeses and dried meats with a winning view.
Hobby porn. Everything from Space Marines to Gloomhaven, dice, miniatures, TCGs, RPG rulebooks to hosting tournaments, they have it all. Oh, and the staff is super nice!
The smallest little sandwich shop run by one guy with the boldest tasting sandwiches I’ve ever had. (Incredible.) You can never go wrong with the pork flank.
Summer, fall or winter, you really can’t go wrong. Yes, this choice maybe a little biased because I live here, but hey this is my list. ?
