The sauerkraut was delicious! The Bratwurst and weisswurst were terrific! We loved the accordion player waltz and polka music! The staff was attentive and helpful.

We came back to this recessed restaurant in the back of a German deli. Sausage, schnitzel, real German side dishes and strudel among the menu of entrees and small dishes. Lawrence was excellent.

My husband and I enjoyed an early dinner at Cafe Mozart a few weeks ago. We were hot and tired and didn't really care where or what we ate when we just happened to see Cafe Mozart. We hadn't read or heard anything about the place and we almost turned around and left when we first walked into the store/deli.... More

Came across this place as we were walking back to our hotel after viewing the White House. It looks like a deli on the outside,but we noticed the restaurant sign in the back. Checked it out online and made reservations, since we were a group of 7, the next night. Great food. Great service. The German potato salad was just... More

We get tired of burgers and Italian when on vacation, so a German place is always welcome for a change. This was pretty close to our hotel. We had no trouble finding something tempting on the menu and the food was very good and fairly priced. There was a piano player for background music. The deli is kind of fun... More

I really liked the ambiance of this spot. There was a great accordion player. The beef goulash & red cabbage were tasty. The store in front of the restaurant had lots of fun German (& other) goodies.

I remembered a charming restaurant from years ago, but when I stopped by for a pastry on my walk back from the National Mall it was a deli. I didn't see the cafe that I remembered, but reading other reviews I see that it was in the back and I missed it. Anyway, I ordered a Sacher torte and ate... More

A bit hard to find but worth it. Some of the best service we've had in DC. We were there for lunch where they offer both specials and a regular menu were offered. My husband had a delicious braut sandwich with red cabbage and German potato salad. My choice was a Reuben. Delicious! Tasty rye grilled perfectly. Generous portions as... More

This was a nice place to come for a friendly visit. The food was good, atmosphere was quiet, and these ice was excellent. This trip was more about visit than the food but it was an all around good experience. If you like bratwurst and potato pancakes then come take a gander.

One on my favorite stops when in town for a meal. Authentic grub with nice selection of beer and wine, and don't forget the strudel for desert there or back to the hotel. You will love the accordion music and the people.
