Nice old booths in a very old building. You felt like you were eating in the early part of the 20th century. We had breakfast here so did not get to experience the "German" part of the deli. My wife had the breakfast sandwich and...More

Offers great German food. Will celebrate 100 years in business later this year. Strudel was wonderful. Enjoyed the mixed sausage plate. Friends raved about Rueben sandwich.

I had breakfast here twice last week and thoroughly enjoyed both times. The Potato pancakes are excellent and I do recommend them. The interior reflects it's 100+ years in business in great ways. It is very unique and well located and clearly popular.
