FIELD SIDE TERRACE DINNING
FOR THE MONTH OF JULY ONLY
Open Air Bistro
Enjoy an exclusive pop-up dining experience at Laveanne Lavender fields every day for a limited time, in July only. We are very excited about our new food provider partnership for the 2018 July season. Savour a decadent lunch menu crafted by award winning and celebrity Chef Tina Moorey, owner and operator of "On the Side Gourmet". The full menu showcases the many culinary possibilities of lavender, highlighting sweet and savoury dishes. Available daily from 11 am to 3 pm, indulge your taste buds and experience the allure of lavender. Relax with a glass of your favourite beverage, friendly conversation, and the breathtaking views from our terrace overlooking the lavender fields. Let us transport you to the sunny South of France while you enjoy the sounds of soft French cafe music.
There will be no reservations taken for the 2018 season.
Our new food provider will be able to serve a larger number of people at a time. Also the Open Air Bistro will be offering food that can eaten in hand, allowing some to walk around with food as they explore our fields. Reservations came with their own problems, of people and even large groups not showing up for their reservation and therefore tying-up limited space. We are confident that this system will be more successful. The food offering will still have a lavender theme.
ON THE TERRACE
Let us carry you away in thought, to the South of France with the breathtaking view from our terrace overlooking the lavender fields. The illusion is continued with the sound of soft cafe music playing in the background as you enjoy a delicious lavender inspired menu created by celebrity Chef Tina Moorey, owner and operator of "On the Side Gourmet". Complete the experience with a glass of wine or favourite beverage, for an unforgettable, dreamy, romantic day out.
OUR FROZEN FAVOURITE
The perfumed bouquet of freshly harvested lavender flowers is ethereal. Lavender's distinctive notes take this rich and velvety frozen treat to a new realm. We have created a variety of flavour pairings that highlight the sweet floral flavour of lavender.
