My grandma used to make Elderberry syrup or juice. Very refreshing especially during the summer when the temperatures at her place used to reach 43-44 °C. So when I tried something like that for the first time in many years at Villa Rosiche it was almost like a time machine. And the syrup they offer deserves to be labeled ‘homemade’.
Homemade is always put in front of things in order to make them more attractive – bringing memories of a long-forgotten home-prepared cuisine. This place could almost claim that its products are homemade because they are prepared on the spot.
The spot itself is hard to notice and I actually found it by chance. It’s a small street and the tunnel that leads to the house with the pastry shop is quite unnoticeable. There’s a sign but you would never expect something like that. It’s a two-storey house with a small and very green yard.
The menu includes a varieties of cakes (do not miss the Biscuit Cake or the Swedish Princess), croissants and non-alcoholic drinks (apart from the Elder syrup, I really like their fresh lemonade). There are also some alcoholic cocktails but that’s really not the place for such drinks (don’t get me wrong, they are perfectly ok).
