We had desert here. All fresh and homemade! Peach kolache melted in your mouth. We also had Bavarian donuts! Cream was fresh and whippy. Everything tastes great! Service was good too!

Little Gretel is an intimate and delicious place for friends and family to gather. There is no bad choice on the menu, but my personal mainstay is the meatloaf and spätzle with mushroom gravy. Sit on the patio and enjoy the wildlife!

The atmosphere, food, and service are all huge wins here. Dinner is a little pricey for me so I go for lunch. Breakfast is good too. And dessert. Love the crystal ship, the jellyfish in the lady's room, the sweet owner lady, but the food...More
