Have had now two good breakfasts at german village coffee shop. Food is good. It’s basic breakfast. And cheap. Clearly the allure of this restaurant though is more based on nostalgia than any “spin” on breakfast and for that nostalgia - I️ would recommend it....More

Go for the omelettes! This is one of my all time favorite food places ANYWHERE. Old time diner in the heart of a historical neighborhood. Decor is solid, not trendy, and the food is great. I just wish it was open evenings for breakfast!
