Whether you’re an early-bird or late riser, why not get your Sunday off to a good start with a tasty brunch? The wine region of Alsace is packed with places that promise to add a deliciously sweet and savoury flavour to your weekend mornings.
Le Temps d’une pause is a unique location in the historic heart of Mulhouse that offers a warm welcome and a 100% organic brunch. With its reading corner and conservatory terrace, this is the perfect spot to relax as you sip a drink and sample pastries and dishes from the menu. The restaurant is opposite M.U.R., whose façade changes regularly to display artwork by different artists. What better way to enjoy Mulhouse’s urban art than while reading a book and tantalising your taste buds!
If you prefer more sophisticated dishes and exquisite treats, why not try the celebrated 4-star brunch at Hotel Le Parc****. In a stunning setting amidst the vines and rural lanes of Obernai, enjoy fresh fruit salad and seafood platters, pastries and salty delights made from caviar or scallops, all washed down with a glass of crémant! Transform this gastronomic experience into a truly relaxing day by booking the package that extends your high-end brunch with an afternoon at the hotel’s spa.
Over in Strasbourg, and close to the cathedral, sits Au Fond du Jardin, where you can brunch in a cosy spot filled with irresistible British charm. The menu includes scones, cakes, eggs, avocado salads, edible flowers and other fresh vegetables. But the speciality here are the decorated and glittering madeleines, a real feast for the eyes and taste buds! And to complete this gourmet offer, the menu also includes a wide selection of delicately flavoured teas, plus some fine wines.
Last but not least, about 40 kilometres to the north of Strasbourg sits La Ferme Bleue, which opens its flower garden and orchard to those in search of a countryside brunch setting. After visiting the garden and strolling down its paths, head to the tea room where seasonal tarts, cakes and savoury treats await, served with tea, coffee, a bottle of Crémant or white, red or rosé wines.
The wine region of Alsace contains a wealth of tasty surprises! So on your marks, get set, brunch!
