Rosé and sparkling wines were chilled and ready for enjoyment over lunch
The cold soup: a refreshing raspberry-beetroot
Charles' Steak frites
My Brandade de Morue with shrimp and smoked scallops
Dessert: a rich, dense chocolate-pistachio ice cream sandwich
We still had some time before leaving for the airport, so we walked around Vieux-Port for a bit, eventually bumping into the rooftop of the Mussée de la Civilisation and a representation of the Laurentian Forest during the winter. I wish we would have discovered the rooftop sooner - incredibly quiet and peaceful amidst the bustling streets below.
So a beautiful final half-day in Québec City. Needless to say, we can't wait to return.
