NOTE: Happy to report that Haus Edelweiss has reopened, and is doing fine.
Today I learned of the demise of one of my favorite Greenville restaurants – Haus Edelweiss. I almost went there for lunch yesterday instead of Cafe Paulista. An unconfirmed source stated that the original owner had sold the place a couple of years ago and had retired. For whatever reason, the new owners either couldn’t, or chose not to make a go of it any more.
Whenever I had a day off from school, Haus Edelweiss was one of the first places I considered for lunch. With its closing Greenville loses the only place for German cuisine in the area. We now have Cuban, Mexican, Chinese, Thai, Brazilian, and Vietnamese restaurants all over the place, but no German, despite the presence of BMW in our area. Oh well.
