The Basket Bakery originally began as a wholesale bakery with a small additional luncheon room, operated by the Frieses, a German couple. As the bakery’s customers grew, so did the popularity of Hilde's extraordinary cooking. Now in its third location, The Village Corner German Restaurant includes a traditional style German tavern, a European bakery and a cafe style dining room that serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. A traditional German menu contains potato pancakes, Black Forest ham and Weiner Schnitzel among other selections. Our artistic and decorative bakery cakes are worthy of any special occasion. In addition The Village Corner boasts a wonderful banquet room that facilitates weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, parties and much more.

Loved it -- Wish it was closer to home!

I am no expert in German food, but I remember fondly a German restaurant I used to visit in Biloxi, Mississippi. I enjoyed everything I had there, so I was excited to see this spot.

We were seated quickly but the service was very slow. Took eight minutes for the waitress to acknowledge us. Paid a good price for food that was not very good. My husband thought it odd they were playing the "blues" in a German restaurant. We purchased cookied at the bakery and they were very good. Would not recommend this restaurant.

The building is beautiful and gives an authentic German ambiance. There is a new brew pub attached that wasn't open when we were there the last time so we can't speak for that. We have been to The Village Corner several times to eat; hubby is from Germany. We always get the potato pancakes with smoked salmon and it is... More

I have read the recent reviews and am disappointed to read the negative comments. We have dined here for the past several years both for brunch and dinner. The food has always been fresh and delicious! The staff is lovely and has always been more than accommodating. I see every walk of life dining there regularly with no complaints. If... More

We had hiked up Stone Mountain for Easter morning services and were searching for some good food. We saw this German restaurant on the corner and decided to give it a try since we love German food. My husband walked in to get a menu to make sure they served the items we like to eat. (I will add that... More

Decided to get out of the hotel and take a little drive. Thought a trip over to Stone Mountain would make for a nice escape. On the way there I was contemplating what to have for lunch and for some reason German food popped into my head. I was almost to the mountain and had forgotten l about lunch, when... More

My daughter and I had some banking to do this afternoon but as son ash she picked me up we both realized we were HUNGRY. Stopped at the Village Corner because it was right there around the corner. The sunshine we had earlier today and disappeared and were dealing with a cloudy dreary day. Well, time for Tomato Basil Soup... More

Everytime I'm in the area I try and eat there!! Wonderful, authentic German food and bakery!! The atmosphere is relaxed and outdoor seating when weather permits. I highly recommend taking the time to enjoy their food or at least stop by for some of the in house bakery goods!! I've taken friends, eaten alone and had business lunches and dinner... More

My family loved this place. Especially the giant soft pretzel. All the dishes we ordered were very tasty and good German food. And what would German food be without good beer to pair it with? So yes there were some good brews as well. Great stop right outside the park.

This was totally unexpected. German cuisine does not rank high on the list of international cuisines. I cannot remember having eaten at a German restaurant outside of Germany, Switzerland or Austria before, so it was a complete surprise to find a quality German restaurant in Stone Mountain village. Inside the restaurant is reminiscent of many Bavarian Inns and in many... More
