Had lunch here on a Wednesday. Had plenty of parking for customers. Reuben was really good and the homemade potato salad. All the sandwiches we ordered were hot and the meat was grilled = Delicious! Waitress was friendly. To go treats from the bakery were delicious. Pretzel bread was very good!

What a wonderful little restaurant! We had five 10 year old little girls in town for a last hurrah of summer birthday celebration! We waited a moment for the table, after being seated we were waited on quickly and received our food in a snap!! The kids all ordered something "German" off the menu and stepped out of their box!...

Bought black forest cake and bread pudding for my daughters birthday. Way too much cake for us but we ate it all in two days. Very very good

We stopped in Helen for a brief visit this month. This is a remarkable bakery. Additionally they serve a breakfast and lunch meal. They have bread loaves and rolls along with delicious pastries. We had a snack of German Chocolate Cake with some beverages. Unfortunately they do close at 4pm. They do have some souvenirs and German products to purchase.... More

We went to Hofers for breakfast after being to another restaurant down the street which was awful. Service was good if a little slow which was ok as the place was packed. I ordered the smoked salmon sandwich which was delicious. My partner ordered a sandwich with cold cuts-can't remember the name but was good. We ordered German chocolate cheesecake... More

I wish I could have stayed in Helen longer so that I could have tried more from Hofer's. I had breakfast and it was delicious. Also took a bread plate to go and wish I would've gotten the bread basket so I could have more! Will definitely eat here again!

A MUST stop for breakfast, lunch while in Helen. The Bacon, Onion Hash is to die for! No leaving here hungry. OH, DON'T forget to pick up FRESH breads and pastries from the bakery. Sit inside or outside on covered porch. A great German flavored resturant.

We went in this place for breakfast. The first things my kids saw was the bakery out front which caused a desire to eat cookies for breakfast. We are the waffles and ham and cheese omelets and they were great. All plates came with fresh bread from bakery Nd fresh fruit slices. Then came the bakery as we left with... More

Our family ate here one morning whilst staying Helen and the food was good. The café has a German theme with the waitresses in costume. Service was fine and we would recommend it to anyone. The bakery on the way in and out looks fantastic, but we didn't indulge.
