What strikes you first about Madame Gigi Confiserie is the extraordinary variety.

Because it’s not only a confectionery, but also a chocolate shop and a pastry shop that lovingly crafts its delightful treats, all year round!

This family business, passed on from father to daughter, has been open in the district for over 30 years, and offers a vast selection of mouthwatering delicacies.

Why not drop by for a meal on the go and pick up a freshly made sandwich, then top it off with a French macaroon in one of 17 delicious flavors, including piña colada.

Or enjoy a melt-in-your mouth port-flavored chocolate. Or sink your teeth into the sweet icing on a cupcake that, with every bite, reminds you of those your grandma used to make. You could also opt for one of the shop’s increasingly popular keto products or a homemade gelato.

Give in to temptation and try one of their famous chocolate praline pizzas topped with dried fruits. And why not surprise your Holiday dinner guests with an artfully decorated gingerbread house!

In short, Madame Gigi Confiserie has more ways than one to indulge your sweet tooth!

La Nougaterie is a unique confectionery shop offering a wide array of homemade treats.


La Nougaterie offers its delicious nougat as well as a vast range of artisanal sweets. You'll find meringue, marshmallow, honey moons, spreads and jams, bouchons de l'île, butters (apple, blueberry, etc.), and nougats in every shape and form. All the products are made by hand in Saint-Pierre-de-l’Île-d’Orléans.


Owners Patrick Augier and Caroline Marelli, who both hail from Europe, form a great team both at work and in life. They are truly passionate about confectionery, and have been involved in the cooking and pastry business for over 35 years.

They have lived in the province of Québec since 2006, and opened their first boutique, Ô Petites Douceurs du Quartier, two years later. It featured local products, made-in-Québec creations, and, as the name suggests, "little sweets.” They subsequently decided to develop their own recipes, and the store was renamed La Nougaterie Québec and relocated to Île d'Orléans to further develop production. Since then, the owners have been lovingly concocting their sweet treats with the help of Cécile, their master confectioner and chocolatier.


A soft and creamy confection dating back to the days of Antiquity, nougat is made from egg whites, honey, and almonds. Back then, it was made in the Orient with almonds, honey, and spices. Nougat was also known to the Greeks, who made it with walnuts.

Various varieties, hard and soft alike, have appeared over the years. Real nougat, i.e., nougat as we know it today, appeared in the mid-18th century. Egg whites, melted together with honey and sugar, were added to lighten the dough.

This storied product can be sampled today at La Nougaterie in the Petit Champlain district.

What could be more delightful than a gourmet stopover at the legendary Fudgerie boutique on your next visit to the Petit Champlain district!

If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you’re in for a real treat. The display counters are teeming with chocolates, nougats, and, of course, fudge—the company’s signature product!

Over the years, owners Jacques Thivierge and Michelle Martin have developed over 80 flavors of utterly decadent fudge!
Other delights on the menu include crème brûlée, caramel fleur de sel (everyone’s favorite!), and the unusual jalapeno pepper fudge, which pairs nicely with a glass of red wine. We kid you not! Other wine and fudge pairings are also suggested on site.

Fromagerie Ferme Audet specializes in the production and processing of goat’s milk.

About us

Our story

In 2016, Martin Audet and Annabelle Bourget launched their dairy production and processing company. Audet and Bourget are both biologists by training, and are passionate about processing goat's milk in all its shapes and forms. In 2017, they began developing high-quality natural soaps and bodycare products. Then, in 2018, they sought to develop several cheeses in association with different cheesemakers. That same year saw the inauguration of the cheese, soap, and bodycare boutique on Île d'Orléans. The following year they began construction on the cheese factory at the farm. Construction wrapped up in April 2021, and in winter 2021, they came up with the idea of a goat's milk ice cream. After multiple tests, they landed on the perfect ice cream recipe—real goat's milk with real vanilla and real Belgian chocolate. It was a first in Québec! The ice cream was introduced in the boutique in May 2021, and since then there have been nothing but satisfied customers! In the wake of the growing success of their farm products, Martin and Annabelle decided to open a new boutique featuring all their products in one place, this time in Quartier Petit Champlain in Québec City.

Located right at the foot of the Breakneck Staircase (Escalier Casse-Cou), this shop offers everything you'd expect from a confectionery… and more. In addition to refreshments and snacks of all kinds, it boasts two entire walls and a display counter chock a block with candies, lollipops, and sweet treats sure to delight the young and young at heart. The Jelly Belly dispenser, with over forty different varieties, offers a mouthwatering rainbow of jelly beans sold by the kilo, so you can treat yourself to just the right amount!

The candy shop also boasts an impressive selection of over 300 American, European, and Japanese model cars, trucks, motorcycles, and snowmobiles (most of them 1:18, 1:24, and 1:32 in scale).

Visitors and locals alike will find a vast array of souvenirs of the city and country, including seasonal-themed gifts featuring the Québec Winter Carnival; summer, fall, and winter scenes; maple products; Québec and Canadian flags; and hundreds of different postcards. You're sure to find a great souvenir of your visit to Québec’s capital city!

Cidrerie et Vergers Pedneault is a century-old family business located on Isle-aux-Coudres, and is the region's biggest fruit producer. Our orchards cover 22 hectares, with over 6,000 apple trees (35 varieties) and 3,000 fruit trees (pear, plum, cherry, and saskatoon berry). Fruit grows abundantly here thanks to the island’s microclimate, allowing us to open our orchards to the public for U-pick, while still meeting all our production needs.

The cider house alone processes our fruit into 50,000 liters of juice, to produce our 25 ciders, mistelles, and creams, totaling over 100,000 bottles a year! Our expertise led to us opening a museum (Économusée du cidrier) in 2003, as a public showcase for our know-how. In addition to our vast range of processed products (some of which are certified Terroir Charlevoix), we also sell cider vinegar, apple juice and must, as well as butters, jellies, and jams. Our products are available across Québec via our own distribution network and partners.

Our business is a major player in the regional economy, with some fifty employees and a strong commitment to the community, as well as being a leading ambassador for Isle-aux-Coudres and Charlevoix. Some 60,000 visitors stop by the cider house every year, and over 5,000 people come to pick in the fall. Recognized by our peers and customers alike, we're one of the most thriving orchards and arboriculture businesses in Québec! Our innovative and continually expanding business is also active in the food service sector, with our restaurant/bistro Le Corylus and our new Aux fruits du biscuitier cookie and ice cream shop.

The Pedneault family has been cultivating happiness since 1918, and with its quality products, excellent customer service, attractive offerings, innovative flair, unflagging determination, and friendly presence, the business remains to this day a flagship of agritourism on Isle-aux-Coudres and throughout the Charlevoix region.

In 2020, the company pulled out all the stops to encourage people to buy local, creating an online platform—charlevoixenligne.com—to enable home delivery of over 350 products from more than 25 Charlevoix producers. You'll find fine charcuterie, jams, chocolates, mushrooms, coffee, tea, salad dressings, sauces, honey, saffron, spices, juices, cereals, cocktail syrups, skincare products, and more... Everything you need for the perfect gift!
