We were told by locals that this place always had good food, no matter what you ordered. So we each ordered one of the two specials, and they were great. Then we did take out for quiche and home made bread.

A party of 4 had an early dinner there & all of us ordered the Schnitzel. Nothing went to waste. Loved the tomato based sauce on top. I have gone several times for lunch & it has always been good. We will be back!
