Great lunch while we were strolling around the Frankenmuth area. The strudel was delicious and the ethnic feel of the restaurant made us feel like we were in another country.

Yes, we do! We have a gluten free menu and a vegetarian menu available. You can view them online ahead of time if you like. Then when you arrive, just request the menu from the hostess when you are seated. Thank you!
