We revisited the cafe after a few months. The decor and the atmosphere are the same. The decor and carpets could use some updating/cleaning. The food this time around was not as appetizing. My wife had chicken with crab topping and I had chicken with artichoke topping. Both the crab and artichoke were very, very meager in portions. Crab was... More

This was our first time in this cozy, private restaurant. We had such personal service. Food was delicious and portions were very generous. We will definitely return.

Every meal I've enjoyed here has been delicious and I love to send others to experience the awesome food, service and atmosphere. My favorites are the Baby Back Ribs (so moist they fall off the bone), Jerusalem Chicken, Steak and Salmon. You can choose garlic mashed potatoes or pasta with your meal (choose the potatoes). Their fresh vegetables are cooked... More

I had never been to Leavenworth, WA before, so all I knew was that it was a Bavarian-themed town. And, I knew nothing about the restaurant situation. Truth be told, I am not a fan of German food, so I was more than pleasantly surprised to find this little gem of a restaurant. It is very small, with no more... More

...to get to this restaurant. I'm really picky about Italian food but was not disappointed. I didn't think I was hungry until we sat down and all of the wonderful aromas hit me. This place will be on my list to revisit when I go back to Leavenworth.

This is a gem of a restaurant in Leavenworth that seems to be overlooked in the local ratings. Perhaps because it's not on Front Street. We walked in and were immediately greeted and offered our choice of the two available tables. There was a jazz trio playing who were really quite good. I asked about the Lasagna and the waiter...

The food was good and very artfully arranged. The service was attentive but not intrusive. The only drawback was that we were seated right by the door that leads from the bar area to the dining room, which is small, so my husband had to keep leaning forward to avoid being bumped. It was the only table available so moving... More

My food was excellent, but my husband's was not. Waiter was friendly and it seemed like a local hangout. Lesson be learned-eat German food when in Leavenworth. Probably will not return.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend who walked us to it. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, The food is excellent, portions a little too large. So nice to get something other than German food(although they have some on the menu). My only complaint was sand in the scallops. The mushroom ravioli was delicious.
