Looking for a good brunch in Strasbourg? To help you in your quest for the best brunch in Strasbourg, I asked some regular brunch-goers in Strasbourg and Alsace for their top addresses. The result is: here are a number of Strasbourg restaurants where you can have brunch on Sundays and even (more rarely!) on Saturdays. Some are suitable for vegetarians, vegans and people on a gluten-free diet, and all have been tried and tested.

Map of our good addresses

1. Chez Nous in Robertsau

chez-nous-brunch-strasbourg

Chez Nous brunch is a favorite of Nathalie de Célest-in. My favorite brunch in Strasbourg is at Chez Nous, a lovely name that says a lot about the quality and atmosphere of the brunch.

Everything is homemade, with local and seasonal products: a savory buffet (cakes, quiches, salads, cheese and charcuterie platters, cooked dishes …) and sweet (cakes, pastries, pies, fruit salad creams …) very copious and varied according to the inspiration of the chef and according to the proposed theme. There is even something to satisfy Vegan and gluten intolerant people. To complete this gargantuan all-you-can-eat buffet: hot drinks, fresh fruit juices, various dairy products, cereals… and good bread is offered.

Something to delight young and old gourmets in a warm atmosphere as we love them in Alsace. The cherry on the cake during the nice days is their terrace located at the back of the house overlooking the water: a calm, peaceful and magical place to escape from the heat and the hubbub of the city. A nice Sunday moment that you won’t forget in a hurry. Victim of its success, you’ll have to book early (especially if you have a large table).

  • All homemade with local and seasonal products
  • Warm atmosphere and beautiful terrace
  • Vegan and gluten-free welcome
  • Remember to book early!

2. Hey Mama in downtown Strasbourg

brunch-hey-mama

Hey Mama’s brunch is a favorite of Celine from Knack & Rucksack To get off the beaten track, Hey Mama is a nice African-inspired restaurant-café. On weekends from 10am to 4pm, Hey Mama offers a unique formula for €28, including 1 savoury dish, 1 sweet dish, unlimited hot drinks and 1 cold drink (latte, fresh juice and spirits extra).

Five original savory proposals that mix flavors and influences (yassa burger, bowl, tacos, shakshuka … during our test) and as many sweet (hot brookie, pancakes, granola, brioche lost during our visit), more classic but always very greedy, original in the preparation and presentation. All of this is enjoyed in a warm, colorful, cozy setting while sipping on good homemade juices (special mention for the ginger juice, which is very spicy!). Don’t forget to book online, the brunch is quickly sold out!

  • The influences of the cuisine, the exoticism of salty dishes in particular and their preparation (accompaniments, seasonings)
  • The gourmet presentation of the dishes, both savory and sweet
  • The originality of the house drinks (with hibiscus or ginger*) and the teas offered (there is more to life than Earl Grey)
  • Home-made food and a savory menu that changes according to the season
  • Good quality/quantity/price ratio
  • The atmosphere of the place
  • A pleasant team and service
  • The noise when the restaurant is full (and the proximity of the coffee machines/milk frothers which are generally noisy)
  • Some tables a little too close together, lack of privacy in some places

3. Au Diable Bleu in the Krutenau

devil-blue-brunch

The Diable Bleu brunch is a favorite of Lucie from Miss Elka. Le Diable Bleu in Strasbourg, a restaurant specializing in mature meats, offers an all-you-can-eat brunch with hot drinks included for 33 euros.

We treat ourselves with pastries, a good slice of bread from the bakery or pancakes. The Diable Bleu has desserts such as crème caramel, panacotta, muffins and brownies at its buffet. As a lover of cold cuts and cheese, you will love the selection of mature cheeses, the pate en croûte, the hams and sausages. Also available, smoked salmon and beef carpaccio.

Already well set? Well, that’s not all, because the steak house offers a variety of hot dishes… and don’t forget the fried or boiled eggs on request, always included in the brunch formula.

  • All-you-can-eat drinks included
  • Quality and variety of products
  • Difficult to get a table if you don’t reserve in advance

4. Madame Julia at the Krutenau

madam-julia-cafe-strasbourg

Madame Julia’s brunch is one of Laurène’s favorites. Madame Julia, located just off the Place de la Bourse, is one of my favorite cafés in Strasbourg, which made me want to go there for brunch one Saturday with friends. I must admit that I am not a big fan of all-you-can-eat brunches, so Madame Julia’s formula is perfect for me: there is no formula, you take all à la carte! I know that this will not please everyone, but I find it better in terms of price and I don’t leave with a belly full to burst, it’s nicer 😉

On the menu, a lot of toast and various pancakes (salty and sweet), bowls, American pastries (carrot cake, banana bread, cookies,…), but also delicious freshly squeezed fruit juices and hot drinks. The dishes served are very copious and tasty. I loved my “Popeye Breakfast” with a Green Detox juice.

Please note that it is impossible to make reservations. If you go on the weekend, I advise you to go early because there is a big queue… Finally, good to know, the pancakes and toast can all be made gluten-free and there are also vegetarian and vegan options. Very nice!

  • A la carte brunch (for me this is a plus!)
  • Delicious dishes
  • Possibility to have brunch all week long
  • Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options
  • Impossible to reserve
  • The service could be a little more smiling

5. The Drunky Stork Social Club downtown

brunch-drunky-stork

The brunch at Drunky Stork Social Club is a favorite of Céline from L’heure du Cream. The Drunky Stork Social Club (which Laurène has already told you about in her favorite restaurants in Strasbourg) is a concept restaurant that boasts a menu with British accents. On Sundays from 11:30 am to 4 pm, they serve a very good brunch at 39€. The price is higher than average, but this is due to the all-you-can-eat formula, the wide choice, the diversity and the quality of the brunch items.

Pancakes, baked beans, bacon, sausage, garlic bread, eggs, cakes, seasonal pies, cold cuts and cheeses, fruit, granola. And the egg is as you like it, fried, boiled, scrambled, in omelette, each one its cooking! Cold savory and sweet dishes are arranged around the imposing central island bar, while hot dishes are served from the open kitchen. Everything is tempting and very greedy, hard to resist!

And a little bonus, here you can enjoy your brunch with good music, to the sound of vinyls, in a contemporary, spacious and comfortable setting.

  • Nothing!

6. Graffalgar in the Gare district

brunch-graffalgar-strasbourg

The Graffalgar brunch is one of Nathalie’s favorites. TheGraffalgar hotel, located near the train station, deserves to be better known. The decoration is modern and nice, the atmosphere relaxed. Finally, a brunch to go to in Strasbourg on Saturdays!

You choose a brunch board with 7-8 small dishes and you can help yourself to yoghurt, juice, coffee, tea, bread, muesli and cakes. Everything is of high quality, fresh and mostly home-made. There are both savory and sweet preparations. I got the vegetarian and it’s nice to get away from the usual vegetable patties. The content of the brunches changes regularly, so you can return regularly without getting bored!

  • The price: less expensive than the average brunch in Strasbourg (this is THE reason that made us push the door the first time but there are others to return).
  • The presentation and originality of the brunch items (vegan and vegetarians welcome)
  • The reception : very pleasant and very satisfactory service
  • Brunch served on Saturday and Sunday
  • It is better to anticipate if you want to be sure to find a place, the place is very popular with groups of girlfriends on Sunday morning.

7. Café Atlantico on the banks of the Ill river

brunch-atlantico

Café Atlantico is one of Laetitia’s favorites. I love Café Atlantico ‘s “Grosse Dalle” brunch, which combines gourmet goodness with a fair price! Of all the brunches tested in Strasbourg, I award it the Golden Brunch in the Best Quality-Price category.

Café Atlantico offers different brunch formulas to suit different tastes and appetites. For me it’s always the “Grosse Dalle” which combines all the pleasures of a good and copious brunch: hot drink of your choice; squeezed orange juice; pastry or cookie; fried egg and your choice of smoked salmon-tzatziki or bacon; half a baguette with 2 side dishes of your choice among jams, cold cuts, cheeses; green salad; brioche perdue. With all that, I’m full and couldn’t eat anything more, not even a fruit salad! A complete brunch, quality products (fresh bread and pastries from the bakery – I love their brioche perdue!) and a reasonable price!

The Café Atlantico is one of the barges moored on the Quai des Pêcheurs with a breathtaking view that I never tire of: the Ill, the magnificent Esca building and the Saint Paul church in the distance. The wooden decor of the barge is warm, with a touch of kitschy vintage decor like I like. The atmosphere is relaxed, friendly, without fuss; the service is attentive with a nice and smiling team. And then what a pleasure it is to go and sit on the quayside terrace to have a brunch, a guaranteed break and the impression of being on vacation in my city!

  • The varied and copious brunch
  • The price
  • The view
  • The cool and warm atmosphere of the barge
  • The terrace on the docks
  • The service and a friendly team
  • No reservation possible
  • Only one hot drink (I’m really being picky because at this price I don’t mind buying a second coffee!)

8. Brunch and family climbing at Bloc en Stock

block-in-brunch


Bloc en Stock has been tested by Vivine and her children. Bruncher en famille c’est possible! Block in stock offers a very well thought out formula to mix two very trendy activities: the brunch and climbing! The first one will be for the grown-ups who want to have a little fun and the second one for the little ones who can’t stand still (around 2 to 5/6 years old you see).

Head for the Plaine des bouchers in the Meinau and its reconverted warehouses to discover climbing without equipment at Bloc en stock (not to be confused with its neighbor Roc en stock – climbing with ropes, a significant difference!) Once you’ve climbed the big staircase, a rather surprising universe opens up to you: rows of climbing walls and a bar with its soft sofas, all accompanied by super friendly staff to guide you.

The children discover the walls and their hooks by difficulty/color, foam modules specially installed for this time slot, an instructor who reassures and challenges them… And what about the parents? They obviously keep an eye on what they haven’t tasted yet at the bar (and the kids do too!). Anyway, what else #parentsepuisés?!

  • A fun and gourmet family getaway
  • A real baby changing area
  • Don’t expect a gourmet brunch though, this is the combo that’s worth the detour 😉

9. Chez Benoît in Schiltigheim

brunch-chez-benoit-schiltigheim


Chez Benoît was tested by Manue from the blog Hum ça sent bon

In the old Schiltigheim a small restaurant opened in April 2022: Chez Benoit! A small restaurant in dimension since it can only receive sixteen people. Once a month, on Sundays, it offers an all-you-can-eat brunch. A delicious brunch made entirely in-house: sweet, savoury, hot and cold. We are offered an assortment of fresh buns and pastries, fresh bread.

For hot dishes there are three courses, soup with seasonal vegetables, pissaladière, fried eggs, scrambled eggs, all accompanied by salad, fresh and local cheeses, fruits, hot drinks and fresh fruit juices. All you can eat!

  • Everything is homemade
  • Seasonal and local products
  • Excellent value for money!
  • It is essential to reserve 😉

10. Wawa Bar in the Krutenau

brunch-wawa-bar

The brunch at Wawa bar is a favorite of Lucie from A la conquête de l’Est. Every Sunday from 11am to 3pm, the Wawa Brunch takes place at the Wawa Bar, a bar that is a little out of the way but worth a visit! Good news: everything is at will! And there is something for every taste: sweet, salty, European, American… it is this part that enchanted me the most. It is not common to find a mac’n’cheese or an excellent pulled pork on a brunch buffet! For the amateurs of breakfast more light, reassure you, there is profusion of raw vegetables and fruit for a healthy version 😉

  • The offbeat decor in a flea market style
  • The choice / variety of dishes offered on the buffet
  • The wawa wheel, a kind of homemade wheel of fortune
  • The location of the bar
  • The absence of certain items noted on the menu that day (waffles, pancakes)
