Café Food Tea room

A tea room in Strasbourg: Tonton Gâteau

You come into Tonton Gâteau as in a little garden. The wood details, rattan chairs, lanterns and hanging lights blend in perfectly with the plant-heavy decor.

This “gourmet café” offers a menu for breakfast and lunch, as well as a Saturday brunch. Brunch consists of two drinks, a sweet course, a savory course, and a pastry of your choosing. There’s something for the kids, too, with le P’tit brunch, for children up to the age of 12.

The plates and the elegant presentation make the dishes pop, while the food is wonderfully fresh and made with seasonal, quality ingredients. The flavors are traditional, but skillfully used with a modern twist.

The atmosphere is welcoming, pleasant, and family friendly. The perfect definition of koselig, as Stéphanie would say in Norwegian, and the staff are affable and bubbly. 

We particularly liked the salted caramel waffle, the salmon blini, the cheesecake (one of the best in town!), the hazelnut, passionfruit and praline cream puff, and the lemon, bergamot and violet iced tea. In short, we liked everything!
