Last year we started a ‘survey’ of weekend brunch places in the area. Having Michael’s mum visiting on Sunday we decided to expand on this list by trying out Brøggeriet’s brunch. We arrived at Broggeriet close to opening time at 10am so it was absolutely no issue to find a table. It being a very warm day the tables outside were also available so we opted for one of those.
As part of the brunch, coffee or tea are included. The coffee comes black, with continuous top-ups. I was the only one having tea on our table. You get a sachet of earl grey tea and a glass of hot water. I wasn’t offered a selection of tea, so not sure whether other teas were available. However, milk was provided when asked. There were no extra top ups for tea (though may be available if asked).
The brunch was, of course, set up inside the restaurant itself so while the tea and coffee were being prepared we went for our first look. The brunch area is set up in two: a warm area with sausages, eggs, a quiche, grilled tomatoes and pancakes and a cold area with cheese and cured meats, fish, fruit and yoghurt. Oh…and cake! The variety here was bigger than what we saw at Cafe Figo.
None of us had anything negative to say about the food, except that the yoghurt was quite warm (but tasted good), having been on the table for a while. The day being very warm, this is to be expected. I was not impressed with the quiche, but then I rarely am in Denmark, but Michael liked it.
Going to the highlights I would say that the selection of fruit was good, I liked the pancakes (though there were different kinds… the small thick ones at the start and the thin big ones at the end) and the 2 cakes on offer (a cheesecake and an almond/marzipan cake) were absolutely gorgeous! The cheeses on offer were also quite varied and tasted good.
Verdict: At 109 DKK including coffee/tea, the price is cheaper than Cafe Figo and the same as the buffet at Ib Rehne Cairo (although that one also offers free juice). The selection was good and the quality very decent. Would try it again, but not before trying the Ib Rehne Cairo full buffet to see what that is about.
