Krummel, Rosendal


Krummel, or crumb, is defined as a small fragment of bread, cake, or cookie. From freshly baked sourdough bread, to great grandmother’s family-secret chocolate cake, buttery pastries, and the most absurd burnt-butter-chocolate-chip-cookies – indulge in it all and not even a crumb will remain!

Come and enjoy breakfast and light meals from our menu, or delve into our ever changing freshly baked treats. And of course, the best brewed coffee in town! Browse our little shop of curated home and decor items and fill your pantry with our locally sourced delicious deli goods.

Slow down, take a seat on the read couch and enjoy the best of Rosendal with a good cup of coffee and fresh croissant.
