Great food, friendly staff in a historic location. This deli has been in business for over a century. Classic breakfast fare and German choices... a bar is available for those needing a breakfast bier with their fruhstuck.

We came for brunch on a Sunday and were looking forward to German food and the much-touted root beer. As soon as we sat down, we noticed a sign on the cash register that said they were out of root beer. Then, after reviewing the...More

The made on location root beer is the absolute BEST. The potato soup was delicious, our other menu items were so so, but the service for lunch was possibly the worst I have ever had. She would disappear on us, for silver wear, drink refills,...More

Their soups and traditional food are amazing. Can be crowded, but worth the wait. Sandwiches are also amazing. I usually just order whatever special is.

Had lunch here today and paid a decent price for it but the food really was not all that great. We had the potato pancakes that tasted heavy and doughy and applesauce that had a weird taste and not really edible. The schweinen schnitzel was...More
