A little gem in Limoilou: Chez Lefebvre

Decidedly, the 3rd avenue conceals treasures. It is not for nothing that it is currently one of the trendiest streets in Quebec. I've been happy to live in the neighborhood for a few years and believe me, I haven't tried everything yet! One midday on a weekday, as I was returning from a business meeting, the rumblings in my stomach told me that lunchtime had arrived. This is where I saw the Chez Lefebvre sign.

I had visited the place before when it was called “La fournée bio”, having contented myself with a few loaves of bread to take away and an occasional chocolatine or two. It must be said that I have a part price for La Boîte à pains, located on the same avenue. Bakery, which I visit almost every week. But why not break habits? I had never tried the meals there.

A long line was waiting for me when I entered, which gave me enough time to explore the menu displayed on screens above the displays of fresh bread. In addition to sandwiches, soups and daily specials, I noticed small fresh pizzas in the window. I immediately appreciated the size which seemed very reasonable for a lunch.

At the time of ordering, however, there was only one kind left: Hawaiian pizza. Honestly, I never understood this daring mix. But deep down, I had never tasted it. So I accepted the challenge, it was now or never. So I was invited to sit in the small dining room while the pizza was warmed up.

A few minutes later, after observing the window filled with homemade chocolate, the small pizza was placed in front of me with the small dessert that I had also ordered: a crispy ball with dates. As I was eating there, I would have appreciated a glass of water being offered to me, but it was not the case and I did not have the opportunity to ask for it.

The Hawaiian pizza finally turned out…respectable. I had no big revelations or disappointments. She was doing the work. The homemade dough was delicious, the tomato sauce too. As a garnish, the ham was also of high quality. And the pineapples, well, there they were. Neither "wow" nor "eurk". Considering the reasonable portion, I almost finished my entire pizza.

To conclude my lunch, the "little" crispy ball that I expected to be light was actually much sweeter than I expected. The taste was delicious and the crunch really interesting, but the sweetness was too intense for me.

Chez Lefebvre remains a small neighborhood bakery that is more than interesting and super affordable
