Jardin botanique Resto-Vélo

This new restaurant wheels around the Jardin botanique offering delicious snacks on a seasonal theme. In the summer, you can cool off with fresh lemonade or ice cream. In the fall, hot beverages and pumpkin-flavoured desserts are a great way to take the chill off.

It’s battery- and pedal-operated, so it’s totally eco-friendly. Let us come to you!
