Today's Good IdeaA new place oozing with sweet seduction
Cathy Goedert set out to discover the sweet and savory delights of this world. Now she's back in Luxembourg and preparing to seduce us with her creations. Imagine tender shrimps with avocado mousse on crispy bread, raspberries on a cream and fluffy sponge cake ... who can resist that? "Youthful but traditional", with a modern feel in white and dark grey tones are the best way to describe the atmosphere at Cathy Goedert. With a glass window separating the kitchen and the dining area, watch the cooks and confectioners over their shoulders as they prepare mouth-watering delights. Young and motivated: Together with her business partner Michele Schmitz and a motivated staff, Cathy Goedert offers their treats “to-go” as well as “in-house”. In addition to a large seating area on the ground floor, the first floor can accommodate up to 140 people – and make for a fabulous spot to host your next event. What’s more, on Thursdays, Cathy invites you to join for an "aperitif" on the (heated, if chilly) terrace!Read on >
