My favorite breakfast restaurants and brunch spots in Strasbourg

Strasbourg is a city in France that is known for its rich history and cultural heritage. There are many great breakfast spots in Strasbourg that offer a variety of delicious options to start your day off right. Here are my favourite spots to eat breakfast in Strasbourg!

If you're staying in a hotel near Strasbourg's train station and looking for a brunch spot that offers both quality and variety, look no further than Au Coin des Kneckes. Located just a 3-minute walk from the TGV station at 34 Rue de la Course, this place is great for families and couples alike.

And yes, vegetarians, this place has got you covered! The buffet includes several meat-free options like quiche slices and mini pizzas.

The brunch menu here is a buffet, and it's all you can eat!

Every Sunday from 10am to 3pm, for just 23€, you'll find an array of options. The buffet is divided into two sections: a savory spread featuring club sandwiches, small quiche slices, sausages, salmon, followed by a sweet buffet filled with fruit and chocolate doughnuts, pastries, cereals, homemade cakes, and a variety of small desserts. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and fruit juices are also unlimited.

The freshness and diversity of the buffet items, along with the pleasant setting—think sunny terrace in the summer and always-friendly staff—make the 23€ well worth it.

Reservation is highly recommended, especially for larger groups.

BCBG café, one of the best brunch spots in Neudorf district

If you're looking for a local spot with great value for money for a delicious brunch, the BCBG Café in the Neudorf neighborhood is definitely worth checking out! It's one of my favorite spots. They serve brunch every day except Monday, with a variety of savory and sweet dishes made with high-quality, fresh ingredients.

The warm welcome and impeccable atmosphere of the restaurant also make it a great choice for a casual meal. The average price of 25 euros for a sweet and savory dish plus a hot drink is very reasonable, especially given the (very) generous portions.
