Breakfast at Schlosshotel Grunewald
On Friday, one of the warmest and sunniest summer days yet, I stumbled upon the most beautiful breakfast spot. The terrace at Schlosshotel Grunewald with its vast white parasols offers a breathtaking garden view that makes you forget everything around you and really dive into a different breakfast experience.
The day is still young, calming white noise comes from the sprinklers working in the background and the scenery brings up memories of movies like High Society and To Catch A Thief.
Before I get to sit down, I allow myself to wander through this awe-inspiring historic beauty of a house: everything is just beginning to wake and rise, the quiet reception hall, the empty hotel bar Le Tire Bouchon, the library and the Restaurant Vivaldi located in the grand hall of mirrors. I'm head over heels in love with this mansion!
The buffet, with a variety of high quality breakfast classics, is waiting to be devoured in the conservatory. The selection of cakes and sweets is especially inviting, but I resist. Eggs, waffles, pancakes & co are served à la carte and the vegetable omelette I ordered turns out to be one of the most delicate of its kind.
Nevertheless it's the house itself with its magnificent adjacent garden and the beautiful situation amidst lush green that make breakfast at Schlosshotel Grunewald so special and give it an almost mediterranean feel. I say, grab your best friend and take a trip to Grunewald!
