My Happy Place

We eat here at least twice during our visits. The Turkey Reuben is amazing. Sit outside along the river and enjoy the view. It can be a little nippy in late fall but get a hot cider to keep you warm. It's worth it. Everything we have ever had here over the years has been great. One of those... read more

The food is on the basic side, but we found the Rueben to be excellent. I would say this was one of the best meals we have had in Helen.

Love Cafe International!!! Can't go to Helen, GA without having a Reuben in their restaurant! The view of the Chattahoochee River is great!

Ate there on Friday 2/6. Service was wonderful, loved the deck overlooking the river (that was pet friendly!) The food was good but a bit pricey. Not sure if we will be back.

Been quite a few times, always love the view of the river and the servers are very nice. I mostly tried the German foods and some sandwiches, everything was delicious.

We stopped for a day trip in Helen, there weren't many options for food and our children were hungry so we decided this would be a good place to eat they were on the river and had a nice view. The service was ok, but our soups didn't come out first they came with the food, and the food had... More

Nice selection of food for our family to chose from. I enjoyed the hot pastrami sandwich. The German fried pork chop my boyfriend had was delicious (sorry not sure of the proper name)! Great, friendly service. Kids were disappointed with not having fries as a side option. Otherwise very good food. Think their hours tend to be earlier as they... More

The view is nice if you choose a table along the stream. Red haired server was nice. Guacamole was good. We ordered 3 Brats and 1 veggie burger. Burger was rubbery and was sent back. Brats were horrible. No flavor. Bread was rubbery. All I could taste was cheese. Tasted processed. Will only drink beer next time.
