I've eaten many times at the adjacent restaurant and the food is always delicious! I have also enjoyed products from the bakery over the years. The baked goods are freshly baked over night and you can enjoy a lovely breakfast with fresh bread. The service is always friendly and helpful. Definitively a great place to stop and enjoy a break...

This is the second time I try this bakery. Like the first time, bread is old, pastry is hard and you don't get to know if filling is spoiled already or just has an unfortunate taste. If you have had the chance to try good european pastry, you feel like running to a german bakery to re-create such great experience.....and... More

I have stopped here dozens of times going to or from the Liberia airport. Food, Service and Pricing is always good. The baking is fresh. Burgers are big. Drinks are cold. If the music and TV are too loud ask them to turn it down, they don't seem to mind. The entrance sneaks up on you so slow way down... More

It was so good we went twice in one day! Playground was helpful. And we loved the photo spots. Staff was bilingual and nice too. Shrimp we had was gigantic and best tasting! Breakfast was delicious with large portions.

First choice for families because of the garden playground. Top dishes for kids. German specialities and wood stove pizza. Try bettys breakfast or the owners dish with pesto pasta and fajitas. We go there once a week.

Recently we had the opportunity to visit this restaurant again. It has a good variety in the menu. I wish it had more tipical german food. But I had Sauerkraut it was very good. Quite place outside Liberia.

My wife and I had just stepped off the plane after a long flight from Vancouver. The weather was shockingly hot and dry. So this little comfortable oasis was very welcome. As we were unfamiliar to the items on the menu we described a Mexican dish that we were fond of. The kitchen created their version from our description. It... More
