At The Gardens, there’s always something to choose from: barbecued hot dogs, soft-serve ice cream, even fresh popcorn from our restored 1904 popcorn cart. And, of course, house-made Italian gelato awaits all summer long.
Open May through September and select days during the Christmas season, Annabelle’s Café offers a quick bite or beverage. Conveniently located half way through The Gardens walk, this venue is connected to the Children’s Pavilion where you will find the Rose Carousel.
Another choice for dinner on Saturday nights from July 4 – September 5, gourmet picnic baskets are sold in the Italian Garden. Wine and beer are only available for consumption in the designated picnic area.
Reservations are highly recommended as this is a popular choice through the summer. Please call 250-652-8222 to reserve your basket. Reservations are not available online.
What better way to top off your experience in the Italian Garden than with house-made Gelato? Flavours vary throughout the season and feature locally-sourced ingredients. Our culinary team travelled to Italy specifically to learn how to make this delicious treat.
Closed for the season, reopening March 1, 2020.
Outside the Coffee Shop you will find mouthwatering hot dogs with all the fixings. A great grab-and-go on your way in or out of The Gardens. This location is open from June through September (weather permitting).
The iconic Popcorn Cart is a 1904 (Cretors) original. The same age as The Gardens, it has been restored and serves freshly popped corn mid-June through August. Located just outside The Carousel building, it is a convenient stop before watching the fireworks.
