Yep, I have to do that! I cross my fingers, Tanja! Because since I wrote to this blog, I found only a few places were I really have to say this – or better say: Hals und Beinbruch! Because this is the place that you have to check out at least once when you are in St. Blasien, or a regular when you live around here. But, there is a question – a DARK question – which rumbles in my stomach sometimes. Tummy? Rumbles? Breakfast!
On this Saturday morning, when the sun shone mightily from the
Heavens, I decided to have a very nice, full featured breakfast at
Rosalie. Now there is a MINOR: My head is SO COMPLETELY full – or empty, what ever you choose – that I… Ha, no! Rosalie Breakfast it’s called. With Camembert, Schwarzwälder Schinken, Salmon with avocado cream – mh, LECKER – that hard cheese – pardon my wording – which I normally not touch, marmalade, a small orange juice and a perfect fruit salad. Two different cut breads by the side.
For those of you who calculate the time because the MEAN to see a Waldhaus beer on the upper border of the picture – don’t panic – it’s a apple spritz, Jon.
As you might know, for guests who like sit outside, you will have to order inside and get a small AND VERY LOUD device which BEEPS when your order is ready to get it out.
Guess what? When I orederd and waited ouside, the beeper securely hidden in one of the bags I had with me – so it behavions when his time would come to beep – I saw at the table above me the couples had order as it looks like a big glass stuffed with yogurt and muesli.
I went in state pede, order – yes Ma’am I DO KNOW, too much to eat – and got it with all the other things.
While the breakfast was great – and the salmon with avocado cream was yummy, afterwards the yogurt with muesli, a small bowl with bee honey at the side, was gorgeous. While the last weeks we all on the Northern Hemisphere had through the climate change hot weather and no mistake, this yogurt with muesli and fresh fruits was exceptional. Give it a try when you are at Rosalie, you will love it.
And now: The dark side. I have no idea what happens to the staff in some restaurants.
When I entered Rosalie, told the waitresses what I want to have and what not (marmalade and the cheese cut in sticks) and – OK I should not make friendly jokes and nearly now bad jokes – the waitresses was obviously not really happy to write it down. A guest is a guest – point.
Later, when I got everything, I went in again – what I would have done anyway, to ask who had put all the things really appetising on my plates and said thank you to the staff who did it.
I do think it is okay, to tell the waiter and waitresses or the boss when he/she is around to tell them as a guest what was not so good and what was exceptional. That’s what I always do – at least if I would come back again.
So, Tanja, I congratulate you that you have from the beginning – now with the umbrellas giving shade over the outdoor place – a perfect café and restaurant. Nothing better for a long way to go. And I do know that I am not an easy guy. Coming around a bit as you have.
