“Great breakfasts and higest-quality meats (but very costly for the meat)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

This is a great place for a cheap but excellent breakfast. Eggs and loads of different breakfast sausage, meats (definitely don't go if you're a veggie) and sides, all top grade. Coffee is terrible, so bring your own.

Meats are as fine as you can get, mostly prime. You had better be rich to afford them, as the per pound prices are in orbit!! If I were worth
$ 3 million or more, I would get all my meats there, so you richies should hurry down there!!!

Also, the store has an amazing selection of other goodies, mostly German but other stuff too. Their strudels are "to die for", and reasonably priced. I pick one up every time I go.

“Great German food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

I was stationed in Germany in the army about 34 years ago. The food in this place brought back those same great memories.

“Wanting a little oktoberfest...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Great store to visit for a taste of German fare. Bought some other products and was very satisfied with my purchase, would go back again, noticed the homemade Breze by the cashier and those were great and authentic to my taste buds...a treat in my book

“Quality German Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Delicious German food at reasonable prices. Large variety of choices, from Schnitzel to Rouladen. We have had dinner here several times, and everything was aways tender and tasty. Fast service, as well. The deli offers many selections of meats and cheeses for those who want to cook your own.

“Huge Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

The food was reasonably priced and pretty yummy. We had breakfast and ordered 3 pancakes plates (1 bacon,2 sausage) and a steak breakfast. Hubby said the steak was pretty tough (he never uses steak sauce and sorta had time for this). Each pancake meal came with 3 salad plate sized pancakes. I think my two boys (9 and 4) and I could have split one order and been satisfied. The sausage was very good, I didn't get to try the bacon myself, but heard that was good as well. Size wise - on the other hand a small OJ or milk is quite small - upgrade to the larger size and you should ne good. I would eat here again.
