Hotels offering brunches
In Garda Trentino you’ll find many hotels offering delicious and energizing brunches for your outdoor activities: hiking, sailing, riding…
Hotel IV Gardan located right in the center of Riva del Garda, opens its doors Sat. and Sun. from 11 to 2.30 pm. Hotel and walk in guests can taste here a brunch worthy of this name.

Freely inspired by the Anglo-Saxon culture, IV Gardan brunch is the right choice on those days where it is too late for breakfast and still too early for lunch. You can’t choose between sweet and salty? Don’t worry, you’ll find a wide sections of both: bagels (you can have them with salmon, bacon or veggie), tempting chocolate desserts or more healthy waffles made with chickpea flour, maple syrup, fruit and crumbles. You can’t decide yet? Come here to have a look yourself!

Let’s try a French toast prepared with molche bread, farmer’s eggs, extra vergin olive oil DOP and smoked trout from Garda Trentino.
Here you find the delicious recipe:
• 8 Slices of molche bread (you find the recipe here)
• 8 slices of smoked trout from Garda Trentino
• Half lemon juice
• 4 (fresh eggs from the farmer – here you find the local market opening hours)
• 1 pinch of salt
• Cream of Torbole broccoli soup (you can find it here)
• Fresh Trentino milk q.s.
• extra vergin Olive Oil DOP from Garda Trentino
Heat a rich dash of extra vergin olive oil DOP from Garda Trentino in a nonstick pan and make it sizzle: the pan must be very hot. Take the slices of mosche bread and spread some Cream of Torbole broccoli on them, put the slices of smoked trout and a hard boiled egg. Dunk the sandwich in some milk and then in the beaten eggs (make sure the sandwich filling doesn’t come out!). Brown each side in the pan for two minutes.
You can taste your fabulous sandwiches with some apple juice, espresso (did you know there’s even a local coffee roaster, fresh fruit and a slice of fresh homemade cake (lazy holiday makers don’t need to worry… there are many bakeries here!) and… voilà!
This is how happiness tastes like…
