Stumbled on this little, out of the way cafe one day, and I am so glad we did. The cafe is very small and slightly cramped, but the food is excellent and made me forget about the close quarters. It's also a tad pricey, but the quality and quantity of the food justifies it. Overall, I will definitely stop by... More

This is a small (6 booths & tables for 16) cafe in an out-of-the way section of Sierra Vista. It shares a building with a Pub which is good because as of today they don't have a liquor license. However, you can order food in the cafe and go drink in the pub where your food will be delivered. We... More

Coming from a heavy German background I have had the pleasure to taste a large variety of German plates in my day. When I visit the German Cafe it is as if I were back in Germany, seriously! The food is cooked with perfection, the staff is VERY kind and polite and last but not least the environment. The German... More

Much ado about this restaurant AND it is all worth it! Excellent schnitzel, home made sauerkraut and sweet/sour red cabbage. Don't look for a fancy place ... It is small and off the beaten path but golly was the food good. Everything was FRESH. Had the sausage sampler to start with and the schnitzel as the main course. Can't go... More

We lived in the FRG for four years (West Germany), and ate a LOT of German food. In 4 years, only had 1 bad meal. Won't go there. The German Cafe in Sierra Vista has authentic atmosphere, delicious German food, at affordable prices. I had the meat plate with red cabbage and spaetzle, my wife and everyone else had some... More

Having lived in Germany for over seven years, I was pleasantly surprised to find this small, genuine Gasthuas (Guest House) here in Sierra Vista, Arizona. The menu is full of German favorites, to include schnitzels (thin pork filets), wursts (sausages), spatzle (noodles),plus several other German favorites. The owner is a former native German, all foods are homemade with fresh ingredients,... More

This is one of the neatest little places to eat in Sierra Vista. A bit hard to find off the beaten path. Off Rt. 92, turn at Donavan Dodge (little street) it is in the back. Food was excellent, authentic like Grandmas. Loved the warm potato salad and coleslaw. Good pricing, neat and clean place. Will go back for sure,... More

I'll be honest, I thought this place would be larger given its reputation, buts it's a small hole in the wall kind of place that's out of the way. The food felt authentic. It was hot, tasty, and plentiful! Definitely a great change of pace from the chains and the Mexican food places that populate this southern Arizona micropolitan area.... More
