The Parc du Bois-de-Coulonge is where I learned the basics of photography: aperture vs speed and light. It is one of the most magnificent parks in Quebec City to immortalise biodiversity, especially flowers. With its breathtaking view of the Saint-Lawrence river, the Parc du Bois-de-Coulonge is one of the most beautiful places for a picnic, a romantic walk or an afternoon tea à l’anglaise.
l’Auberge Saint-Antoine has set up the Panache du Parc at the entrance of the Parc du Bois-de-Coulonge, their third «Panache Mobile». Unlike its two food truck-inspired siblings, the Panache du Parc is located inside a permanent building. Its setting is magnificent and the surrounding nature fills the air with wonderful essences. Tables and chairs accommodate the guests that would like to enjoy a seated meal where table service is offered.
The Panache du Parc proposes a refreshing menu aimed at seducing and cooling of taste buds. It features a create-your-own salad bar, an exquisite cold pea soup, gelato, macarons and one of the best iced tea in Quebec City: blackcurrant! Inspired by l’Auberge Saint-Antoine’s famous Thé à la mode, Panache du Parc also offers a traditional English afternoon tea service featuring cucumber sandwiches, scones and choux à la crème. English tea is served every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 2pm during the summer and is reasonably priced at 20$.
