This is a place I have been wanting to check out for ages! So recently a friend and I headed to The Bike and Bean Cafe. It is about a half hour drive from Halifax, situated on the old road to the South Shore, the number 3 highway. Once the French Village train station, it is now a cute cafe and bike rental place.
Love the small bowl of water placed here for thirsty critters.
We had a grilled paninis and carrot ginger soup for lunch, seated outside under the cheery umbrellas. ( do you know how many variations of "panini" I typed to get it spelled right?The letter n tricked me)
For dessert I had to try one of the fruit tarts made by Boulangerie la Vendeene believe. YUM!
What is so cool about this wee place is that it is situated on the old rail line which has long been gone and is now a wonderful walking /biking trail. You can rent bicycles and helmets for $20 which will give you 4 hours or $30 for the day. Two hours cycling will take you to Hubbards where you can have more treats at the Trellis Cafe and then bike back!
We did not go for a cycle but had a short walk. Look what we saw:) I can hardly wait to come back for a day of cycling:)
