This small German restaurant in the tourist town of Helen provides great food--breakfast and lunch only, but they offer the traditional German foods. The bakery counter showcases gorgeous and delicious pastries and desserts--it's worth a trip just for that alone. We come here for lunch whenever we are in the area.

As others have said, there is definitely a wait for breakfast. Totally worth it though. I had perfectly cooked eggs over easy and a yummy desert. Good coffee as well. And friendly service.

My girlfriend and I visited Hofer's twice while visiting Helen, GA. The first time we arrived, we missed breakfast which was out main reason for going. We stayed and tried the Poorboy sandwich and the Knackwurst on Pretzel bread. Both were very good. So we arrived early the next day and got the Alpine French Toast and the Ham &... More

Stopped in for lunch as recommended by a local. Food was pretty awesome. Totally enjoyed their potato pancakes. Stopped in the bakery on the way out. Rye bread was delicious and bought a couple cookies that were well worth the calorie intake!

First off, our breakfast and coffee was nothing special and the pricing was too high for the quality of the food we received. My fiancée and I are interracial couple. This was the only establishment in Helen that made us feel unwelcome by both the staff and other guests. It was too bad, the restaurant came highly recommended.

My experience is there will always be a wait for breakfast but it's definitely worth it. We loved it so much that we went back the next morning, waited in line (it's first come, first serve for breakfast), and had another delicious breakfast...two morning in a row! Also, my suggestion for the wait is to get some coffee and maybe... More

Stopped it for lunch after going to Anne Ruby Falls. Truly enjoyed our Brats. This was our second time to visit, the first was during Oktoberfest a few years ago. Fast friendly service and reasonably priced.

We thankfully arrived before the 9am rush on a Sunday morning. What a delightful breakfast this was. We had the French toast and shared a serving of Apfelkuchle with sausage links and coffee. The French toast was uncommonly succulent, made with the store's homemade bread, and fried to perfection. The Apfelkuchle is sliced Granny Smith apples that are dipped in... More

It's a small restaurant/ bakery, but we love it. The servers are friendly and efficient, the food is good and reasonably priced. The Reuben sandwich was the bomb!!! The bakery that they have is also great! If you're in Helen, don't miss this place.
