Homestyle breakfast from Werner's Oven
I saw on Werner's Oven's website that they offered breakfast. Some of the items sounded really nice, and we've had good mains here before for dinner, so we decided to try their breakfast last weekend. Well, we weren't expecting a real German breakfast but even what we got served was really very ordinary. The grilled sandwich with ham, cheese and tomato was well-grilled but the tiny portion made for disappointment at first sight (object above looks bigger than in real life).
We had highest hopes for the biggest platter on the menu. Alas, it was nothing extraordinary, tastewise. Like the rest of the dishes, it had this really "homemade" quality, but I mean this in the amateur sense. You could probably whip up something better at home. The strong herbs and spices in the German sausages also may not be to everyone's liking.
We thought the buttermilk pancakes could have been a lot better too, both in terms of taste and presentation. The pallid appearance matched its dull flavour. Worst of all three, it fared.
I suppose you could treat yourself to the many bakery items they offer if you're not keen on the cooked breakfast. We didn't try anything that day though I remember their laugen brezel is nice.
Werner's Oven does have some nice rustic breads. I used to love these until I started baking my own. But for a much more satisfying breakfast, I'd head over to the nearby Swiss Backerei anytime.
