Good Quality Food

We went there based on the reviews here. The food is really good, my wife had the Cordon Blue and I had the Curry Wurst. The sauce of the Curry Wurst is definitely not like you would expect as a German but not bad at all. The sausage it self is indeed like the Wurst used in Germany. You will... read more

Friendly staff, fantastic food, and a beautiful view of the marshes. I've visited 3 times in the last month, now that I've found this treasure, and will be returning for Sunday Brunch to check out their Shrimp and Grits!

Didn't expect much in this little town. But…looked for a place to meet between Charleston and HHI. Agreed on this bases on TA reviews. From outside, thought it might be a mistake. Server was outstanding and friendly. Owner/chef, a Swiss native, came to the table several times - great guy. The food was really good German - authentic and well... More

Over the years this small family owned and managed quality service oriented location is a true diamond that is hidden off the usual trail of fine meal experiences in Beaufort, SC. Taking the time to go out of your way, will provide you with a rich experience of southern charm and European dining quality with friends you will meet and... More

I have lived in Beaufort for 5 years and I am wondering why it took me so long to find this place and have a meal here. This place should be called the Secret Garden. My family and I had the pleasure of having Easter Brunch here. Every person in our party of four had nothing, but amazing things to... More

We always enjoy eating here, it is a family owned cafe that has several German dishes as well as other European dishes to choose from. Great climate and just a good place to enjoy great food. Some of the nicest people there as well. Excellent food at good prices and you never go hungry after you have eaten. They are... More

This restaurant is a hidden gem. It is a Swiss resturant that we tried for breakfast the first time this Sunday. On Sunday's they have an excellent inexpensive brunch menu. Had the "Dutch eggs". Gruyere cheese over small pieces of ham over eggs and homemade toast. Yum! Will be back to try other items. Wife had a more traditional breakfast... More
