Stimmungsaufheller

Often, when I am in a bad mood or just generally feel grumpy, food will lift up my mood by a big notch.
I know that it is often just a mind-set but once in a while I think it is ok to be unsatisfied.
It gives you the opportunity to reflect and makes you think about actions you need to undertake to improve yourself and your life.

Anyway, in German we call something a Stimmungsaufheller, that literally means to brighten up your mood.
The Mister is very thoughtful and knows that I love the millefeuille from Joseph Brot.

At the moment they even have a different versions with fruit (but I still prefer the original one!).
The other piece we shared was a brownie tart with raspberries and white chocolate cream.

There is no chance anyone can be grumpy after those ;)

Joseph Brot Bistro

I already wrote about that tasty vanilla cream pastry I bought here but somehow totally forgot to write about my lunch there.
A bit late but better than never, let me show you the yummy food I had with Coco and her sister.

The bistro is not that big and most tables are occupied so I’d recommend to come by after peak hours if you don’t like to wait.

After the joys of finding a free table without any wait came the crucial task of deciding what to eat.
It took quite some time but I opted for the cacao with Joseph bread salad. The salad was huuuge and really tasty!
The bread served with the salad was pan-fried with butter and was just so lovely in combination with the greens. Definitely a great idea to try out at home as well!

I was not too fond of the cacao though which had a lot of lumps.

Coco took the Green Detox smoothie with a stove baked omelette with pumpkin, tomatoes and ricotta and bread and her sister took  green risotto with orange peels and cheese.

Satisfied with the food but still wanting to try out more we took a peek at the beautiful crafted cakes and sweets at the counter.

For desserts I went with the carrot and speculoos muffin and Coco chose the buttermilk cake with elderberries rhubarb and strawberries.

I really liked the design, it looks so pretty!

Joseph Brot belongs to the more expensive bread sellers compared to others but they do focus on biological sourced products and traditional bread making. And since we absorb a lot of the things we consume I think it is always good to look out for quality products.
Have you been to Joseph Brot already and what is your opinion?

Finally the promised post about Joseph Brot Bistro is here! Drum roll please!

I have sometimes visited their first shop but now that their Bistro has opened I can’t help but drop there by more often because they have pâtisserie section and everything is just so beautiful.
What is better than bread than skilfully crafted pieces of desserts that look so pretty? I know stupid question.

After a hard time deciding I opted with the French vanilla crème pastry and it was way better than I expected!
Glad I listened on my gut and went with this option since my friend took the hazelnut cake but thought it was only ok.

The vanilla crème was like pudding but best of all was the pastry on top which was caramelized and gave everything a nice balanced flavour and this whole huge chunk was not at any moment boring.

The prices are quite high at Joseph Brot but I would pay 4,8€ for that delicious pastry again, so worth it!
