Patisserie Lachenaie will also be accepting Bitcoin for goods and services via Coinkite Payment Terminals at the point of sale.
"Since I first read about Bitcoin, with its open nature and quick worldwide transactions, I thought it was revolutionary. But buying them wasn't so easy for me," said Joe Di Sano, proprietor of Patisserie Lachenaie. "It took me several weeks just to be able to start buying Bitcoin online. That's why I'm so excited to setup my first Instacoin Bitcoin ATM. All the client needs to do is scan their mobile phone [displaying a wallet QR code], insert cash into the machine and within seconds Bitcoins are transferred to them."
