Best German food that I have had in the Triangle area of North Carolina! And the staff was very friendly and helpful as well. Really enjoyed it!

We had a group dinner with a reservation. The food was outstanding. The service was abysmal. The appetizers had not come by the time the salads came, so we cancelled them. No one filled water and we had to ask for more wine. We waited over an hour for our entre and we had to ask for a check. Perhaps... More

I love this place. Great food. Lovely outdoor patio, when it is not too hot. Very interesting dishes for dinner. Early in the day, it's a noisy, busy, fun place. It's much quieter and leisurely at night. Food is always good. I love the beet sandwich. Salads are beautiful. Lots of good meats for meat eaters (which I I not).

Had a lovely dinner on the patio of Guglhupf. Schnitzel was crispy and tjey had a good wine list . Our waiter was attentive without being overbearing.

Outstanding, best schnitzel around within 50 mile radius, excellent atmosphere, eclectic, fun, great beers and don't forget to check out the bakery. One can order the bakery stuff ahead of time so if you are dining at night they will hold it if prepaid One small remark... No longer substitutions of potatoes to spatzle

The mood is excellent with indoor and outdoor seating. A relaxing place to go for breakfast or brunch (they do have dinner, but never been). Inside seating can be downstairs or up and one has complete freedom as to where they would prefer to be. Service is good and the attendants are helpful and friendly.

Great place to enjoy a yummy lunch, breakfast or even their "flip the kitchen special". The only possible hitch would be if you are not used to the high fiber firm German breads. Their is a lovely patio that is covered outside, a downstairs with lots of light and our favorite the upstairs with the many Japanese lanterns and pretty... More

Chic modern German restaurant/bakery. Good food, with a German bent, but fantabulous bakery! Owned by Germans.

Most people go for brunch or lunch, but dinner is a completely different experience. There's table service. The food is upscale, well-presented, creative and delicious. Service is great.

We dined there before a concert. The restaurant is very interesting architecturally and has a German food market attached.
