Rue du Cap-Diamant is a short street located on industrial land owned by the Quebec Port Authority off Boulevard Champlain below the Plains of Abraham.

Cap Diamant (or Cape Diamond) itself is the promontory on which the Upper Town of Quebec City is located, surrounded by the St. Lawrence River to the south and east and the much smaller St. Charles River to the north.
