Québec’s visitors often write up Chez Temporel as a “discovery,” or as “authentically Québec” experience. That’s what we like about it, too, especially in relation to this part of Upper Town near rue St-Jean, where non-touristy restaurants can be hard to find. This modest, nine-table cafe covers the basics like coffee, quiche, and salad very well. For some reason tourists are unlikely to take a turn off the main drag (but not you!) so you may find yourself among local college students and neighborhood regulars. If you send the cafe a postcard that describes why you liked dining there, they may post it on the wall. In business since 1974, they’re clearly doing something right.
