Fantastic

The Metro is the real deal. Everything is made from scratch and they have a full variety of German goodness. Their soup is exactly what I crave on a cool fall day, full of flavor and hearty.

Last time that I was at the metro was about ten years ago. My wife turned 50 do I thought a nice night out. We started with the metro. WOW. Didn't expect the REALLY bad food. Schnitzel was sub-standard and perp goes weren't perogies!!! TERRIBLE food. It's a shame because it used to be the best!!!!!

We have been visiting this establishment for 40 years and have never been disappointed by our food. The atmosphere is quaint but welcoming prices are excellent. a must when visiting Kitchener Waterloo.

Their schnitzles went down the drain you can tell they keep them frozen they precook them and just heat up. Not the greatest service very slow!
