Québec City - day five

Mark had to work on Monday, our last day full day in Québec.  It stood to reason then that I should have breakfast at the Crêperie in solitaire and write postcards between black coffee and forkfuls of apples and cheese.

Of course it followed that I should roam the streets of the Old Quarter taking it all in for the last time.

The rain came and washed the snow away to autumn.

I happened on a glass shop where I had to resist the desire to purchase the whole of a mini forrest and other non-coniferous items.

We were told Le Lapin Sauté was the best restaurant in town.

Stop it with the ridiculous cuteness of this place.

We began dinner early with the place to ourselves.

But it wasn't long before chairs had bums and tables their elbows.  And I concurred with the masses - this was my favourite restaurant, too.

Descrumptious apple sugar pie.  Can you see the face?

Thank you, Québec!  Goodbye, Château!  You were so good to us it hurts.  We miss you and promise to return.  Mwa! x.

I don't think photos of a place have ever made me ache to see it (live there) as yours, Colleen. Love the pots on the restaurant.

Thank you, you two. I wanted to go back as soon as I'd left. You would LOVE it, Nan. Unfortunately Blogger (which I love) deleted my other posts on Quebec City. We visited the country side, too, which you could eat with a spoon. So beautiful.
