Maison Mathis pays tribute to the rich heritage of European food culture. Inspired by the best European cuisines, it’s a place where we treasure and share our culinary legacy. Just like our grandmothers did, and their grandmothers before them, we continue to honour the European love for good food. Why? Because we adopt the ‘joie de vivre’ take on life – “the pleasure of enjoying life, the joy of sharing good times and beautiful things.“
Bread is undoubtedly at the center of Maison Mathis, as guests are immediately TREATED to the sights and smells of the on-site bakery. Open from 8am each morning, a breakfast of Pain Perdu, Patisseries and Belgian waffles can be enjoyed in a home away from home, à la Maison. Just remember those little bakeries and grocers from the fifties? The inviting aroma of fresh bread, the bright colours of fresh fruit and vegetables... Time went slowly, and life was easy... Well, we at Maison Mathis re-creates that feeling! Delicious, fresh, homemade bread. The kind of bread someone got up for in the middle of the night, standing elbows-deep in dough and flour, kneading, slapping and punching it into perfection. The kind of bread you can’t wait to get your hands on so you can crack open its crispy exterior and sink your teeth in the soft goodness that has risen to its supreme texture on the inside. Out of respect for our traditional recipes, everything is home baked from scratch, every day, right there on the premises.
At Maison Mathis, the hungry guest will be indulged by an extensive selection of fine European food. All-time classics are prepared the way our grannies cooked them. Lesser-known recipes from the past are brought back to life. Honest and authentic preparations will boast full flavours and perfect portions. Maison Mathis is an ambassador of European food culture, but with a surprising contemporary and international twist, all dishes and products pay tribute to the good life.
In these complex times of too many choices and too little time, our perception of living – and eating – is slowly starting to change. More than ever, we long for the simple things in life. In search of something genuine, people all over the world turn to a familiar comfort of the past: the love of good food, enjoyed in good company
