Set along a quiet side street between the bustling Old Port and Rue St.-Jean districts, Chez Temporel has been a haven for affordable breakfasts, lunches, and café au lait bowls since the mid-70's. A simple wooden sign atop a centuries-old brick building signals the emerald green and windowed cafe front. Inside, small tables are frequently filled with local artists, writers, and lovers of buttery croissants. The menu includes various baked goods, cheesy croque-monsieur sandwiches and seasonal soups, as well as moderately priced wines and locally crafted microbrews.
