This place has the same feel that every little small town cafe in Texas seems to possess, and I've been to a million of them. Great friendly wait staff, sweet/unsweetened tea, and a list of handwritten specials on the chalkboard. I ordered the jager schnitzel and spätzle, and my wife got a hamburger. Food arrived quickly and was piping hot.... More

Breakfast was not as good as I expected. My potato latkes are better. If I am back in the area I will give them another try based on other reviews.

My family and I almost didn't put our name on the waitlist because it was packed full of people waiting outside the restaurant, but we only had to wait maybe 15-20 minutes max for a table. Their food was a mix of country and German style breakfast, and even had a few Mexican options too (Gotta love Texas). I had... More

While in Fredericksburg it was recommended that I try the Old German Bakery and Restaurant for lunch so, I did. Peaking in the widow I noticed that the restaurant was jammed packed so I walked the main street for about 40 minutes and then returned. Upon entering the restaurant, I was greeted by a very friendly waitress and was seated... More

Ordered the German pankakes which are quite large. They are delicious. You must try something from their bakery. They have all sorts of pastries and breads. Excellent tasting.

I was impressed with this restaurant when we first ate here in 2013, but it has gone downhill since then. Don't know if there was a change of management or what, but the jagerschnitzel was tough and had no taste except for the mushroom gravy. The spaetzel was mixed with CHEESE -- like mac & cheese! Out of 6 of... More

This has to be the BEST bakery ever! Had breakfast here every morning while visiting beautiful Fredericksburg. Most peeps order hearty breakfast-eggs, biscuits/gravy, waffles, sausage/bacon, bottomless coffee (reg or decaf). But I indulged in the bakery! Authentic Berliner and poppyseed pastries and fruity strudels that are to die for! An absolute must when visiting. Full of locals and visitors. Go... More
