The food here is great. Pretty much what you would find in any small German town at the local restaurant. Excellent owners/operators will make your visit worth the while.

I'm from Cali and Utah. Travel a lot. If you want authentic German home cooking, this is it. The soup was amazing. The Schnitzel was so tasty. Pastries are also home made. I could eat here for breakfast, lunch and dinner and be happy.
