We love German food so this was a must while we were at the beach. We really enjoyed the German meatloaf with spaetzle, German potato salad and cabbage! Lots of German and American food to choose from.

We took a out of town friend to Heidi's for a great breakfast. Everything was as ordered and delicious. I especially enjoyed the open faced Ham & Eggs on rye. Heidi's has a bakery so they make their own bread and other goodies.

Heidi’s is delightful and refreshing change from the endless “beach” themed places. Although we do not know much about German food, we had an amazing meal. It was delicious! The staff and service were great too!
