What better way to make wifey happy than to take her out for breakfast on one of the first sunny spring days during a weekday. So we went to Meierei im Stadtpark, the beautiful small dépendance of the Steirereck.
The service is very relaxed, friendly and helpful – just perfect. Giving you the feeling of being in a very familial place. The interior is as cool, as the view is amazing:
They have a lot of breakfast options and whole breakfast menues. But first of all: Going for breakfast there means to take time and hunger with you! So let’s start with the cover:
Great butter (!) and wonderful (!) „Semmeln“ (rolls) ! I finally went for the „Steirereck Breakfast“:
I had beetroot youghurt with char caviar – but I’m no big beetroot fan at all, it was very fruity though. Then I had gently cooked char with capsicum and white cabbage, a very savoury and intense dish with very tender char fillet. The soft-boiled egg with sour cream and foie gras was just amazing! Moreover there was a huge portion of gammon ham with fresh horseraddish, incredibly juicy and tasty. And in the end I had warm chocolate cake with pineapple and pericon salad, a beautiful piece of patisserie with a perfect balance of sweet and sour.
The madam went for the Meierei breakfast:
This one had a great sheep’s milk yoghurt with forrest berries and kafir-lime. Then a cheese omlette (the most ordinary dish this morning). Then there was curd cheese with herbs, marinated salmon and thyme – especially the cheese was a fresh and light company for the fish (farmed…but for this price). Then were three cheeses from Austria and an absolute incredible warm curd-cheese strudel with elderberry compote, that was just amazing!
As you would guess, we couldn’t possibly eat all of that – so we took the cheese home 🙂 All in all it was an incredible breakfast/brunch! Including coffees and juice we spent 30€/person, which is absolutely fair for what you get.
