I had already planned to have their version of eggs benedict served on waffles with ham, brie, mushrooms, bechamel sauce and herbed, roasted potatoes. Honestly the BEST breakfast dish I have EVER eaten and we are foodies and big breakfast people!
My husband had the casserole of spicy homemade sausage with roasted potatoes, fried cheddar and an onion sauce. Both dishes looked appetizing and were delicious!

Changing of the Guard

From here:

The Changing of the Guard takes place daily at 10 a.m. in summer on the Citadelle's parade grounds. The ceremony marks the arrival of new sentries to relieve those on duty at the garrison. It is a colourful military tradition and includes the inspection of the guard by the officers, the Regimental Band, and the regimental mascot Batisse the Goat. Duration: 35 minutes. Important to arrive 15 minutes before the ceremony starts.

The Changing of the Guard has been a tradition at the Citadelle of Québec since 1928 except for a brief hiatus between 1939 and 1945. The ceremony features soldiers of the Royal 22e Régiment decked out in their scarlet regimental dress and bearskins as the "new guard" relieves the "old guard" after 24 hours of sentry duty at the Citadelle's entrance.
It is based on the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace and is the only such ceremony in the province—a must-see experience for visitors to Quebec's capital!

Included with Citadelle and Museum admission.
Important to arrive 15 minutes before the ceremony starts.

The Beating of the Retreat is based on a European tradition dating back to the 16th century. It signals the end of the day’s service and the closing of the fortress gates. Guards, wearing full regimental dress with scarlet tunic and bearskin hat, assemble on the parade square to lower the colours to the sound of rifle fire and the Canadian National Anthem.
