Stopped for Saturday lunch and had the restaurant to our self. Unfortunately another server (only two there) had a personal problem and that seemed to be the main concern for our server. Highly recommend the bakery and getting it to go.

A small unique place. We stopped in just for dessert. Everything was delightful and very tasty. I also enjoyed some coffee along with mine. I highly recommend venturing to this little taste of Germany in Des Moines, IA.

Food was great! They were out of our wine selection but the chef suggested an alternative which was very good. The sausage and soft pretzel appetizer was yummy and my veal schnitzel was delicious!

We are just in town for the weekend and wanted a nice breakfast before we headed out for the day. The Strudl Haus is on the rougher side of town surrounded by dilapidated housing which isn't a bad thing but it doesn't look super inviting...More

We stopped by on a Sunday thinking we’d grab a pastry and ended up getting a table & having brunch. It’s a small place, but it didn’t feel overcrowded, even though most tables were full. The food we ordered was delicious and the staff were...More

Came in on a Sunday brunch and the place was quiet with not a whole lot of bustle. The staff were all well dressed and friendly. The service was very quick and presentable. The food was pretty good but for the money, you'll pay more...More
