Edelweiss Village

A food lover could easily lose time at the Edelweiss Village in Capitol Hill, N.W. – especially this time of year. With a massive kitchen section, Christmas shopping is a breeze for the cooks in your life not to mention scads of beautiful seasonal decorations, international snacks, cards and kitsch that will keep you browsing, perusing and admiring for hours. All of which will work up an appetite. At this point, those in the know head to the bakery and deli counter and pick something up for dine-in at the Kaffe Stube or take-out. So much to choose from with sausages, schnitzels, sandwiches and strudels all up for offer. This time, we opted for the house-made sausage rolls and were not disappointed. Served simply with salad and mustard, the rolls incorporate ground salami, beef and – well, they won’t give it all away – rolled up in a golden pastry. This roll packs a lot of flavour in and is a tasty, if not a little rich, lunch. If you catch them early enough in the day, you’ll get the crispest flakiest version, but it’s delicious all day long.
