Breakfast at the 4**** Hotel Waldhof Vitalpina in Rablà/Parcines
“Start every morning with a good thought..."
(Zit. Carl Hilty)

and a good breakfast – that's what we take care of in the Waldhof kitchen!

While you‘re still snuggling wrapped in your fluffy blankets in the early morning hours, we are already busy in the kitchen. We slice freshly baked farmer's bread, serve South Tyrolean cold cuts and cheeses, fill bowls with fresh mountain yogurt, homemade jams and creamy spreads, bake our buckwheat and marble cake, turn our sweetest oranges into freshly squeezed juice, grind our coffee beans to serve you espresso, macchiato, cappuccino ... And then we take out our organic eggs to turn them into delicious egg specialities for your breakfast - just the way you like it.

The table is set - in the restaurant and on the terrace.
The morning mail is on the table.
There you are, take a seat.

It’s time for breakfast
… and for a wonderful day too.
