we tested The People’s brunch

On this long weekend, it’s good to have fun without thinking too much about the next day. And for that matter, what could be better than an all-you-can-eat buffet early in the morning? Today we’re bringing you brunch at The People (formerly The People Hostel), a place we really like and worth stopping by for its brunch, but not only.

the people it’s a huge hybrid place between bar, restaurant and hostel. Located in the district of Krutenau, is located in the former tobacco factory and extends over more than 3500 m2rooms included. Aimed at Strasbourg residents, but also at locals from all over the worldrepresents the revitalization of those places of life, in English, that open up to the city and its inhabitants.

Open all day, The People is neither a traditional hotel nor a hostel as one can imagine. It’s just a comfortable and fully equipped place where you can come and have a meal or a drink.when it’s convenient for us.

And since we’re talking about places to live, The People comes alive almost every night with concerts, jam sessions, DJ sets, workshops and aperitifs of all kinds. All in a light and friendly atmosphere, characteristic of this kind of place, where meetings are created almost naturally.

Today we take you to discover The People’s Sunday Brunch: a home-cooked buffet that mixes sweet, savory, hot and cold in a family-friendly and relaxed feel-good atmosphere.

Priced at €25 per person, it’s an excellent alternative for brunch fans who don’t want to ruffle too many feathers. We settle in, disconnect and enjoy the moment.

Our take on The People brunch

The team people put everything work so that we don’t feel NO at home and that’s why you get out of bed on Sunday. People come to enjoy a privileged moment, for themselves and their guests. For once, it’s good to forget the dishes and cleaning up after a meal: it’s the team that takes care of us.

Here, the atmosphere is relaxed and the place is as atypical as it is expansive. Generations meet and start conversations, that’s it a place where one goes easily to the other. At the same time, what could be better than an all-you-can-eat buffet to bond?

Good value for money, the brunch is varied and we think it needs a lot of work : most of the dishes on offer they have home summer (except pastries and pâté en croute)and it shows.

Affordable and family-friendly, brunch isn’t for those who like high-end produce or unlimited clams. Rather, it’s reserved for people who like grandma’s little feasts, steamed and full of flavor. It feels like a great summer cookout!

Everything we tried was successful, well done. Apart from two or three fresh salads that were perhaps missing to refresh our palates, we had a great time for a really not a price crazy!
