In a land of over-priced Old Montreal tourist eateries, Jardin Nelson is a good bet for crépes, salads and personal pizzas.
The dozen and a half varieties of meal and dessert crépes offer interesting flavor combinations such as seafood, saddle of rabbit or Lake Brome duck confit.
Best of all, live jazz accompanies your meal all day long.
There’s a lively outdoor terrace in front along Place Jacques Cartier and an interior courtyard as well. In fact, the restaurant is basically all outdoors (no doubt covered), so it’s only open seasonally spring through fall.
On the menu…
Nelson crépe of sweet apple stuffing, cinnamon, bacon, cheese and maple syrup.
METRO: Place D’Armes (Orange Line)
