Little Gretel was clean and friendly. Indoor and outdoor dining. Food was better than average we would go back.

The van rijn omelet and pecan pancakes were amazing. The ranchers breakfast was fine. Good coffee, but it was hard to come by. Service was slow even before it got busy. Nice atmosphere.

We had a group of 13 people and sat outside. We called ahead and the restaurant had our table ready when we arrived. Our waitress was a bit of a space cadet but I believe it was because a film crew was there taping a special about the restaurant - so the entire atmosphere was a bit electric and chaotic.... More

We went to Little Gretel Restaurant. All 3 of us ordered different dishes. I ordered the Wiener Schnitzel, my Friend the Jaeger Schnitzel and my sister in law jalapeno sausage. We've heard such good things about the Restaurant and could not wait to get there to try it. Well we did and it was very disappointing. The Schnitzel was dry,... More

This Bavarian style restaurant has the best Ruben Sandwiches and fries. The desserts are to die for. If you're on a diet, just enjoy the Angel Cloud desserts. Oh my goodness, I don't always talk about the restrooms, however, my wife said the ladies' room is a trip, it has a fish tank in it and beautiful glass bowl sinks... More

This is my favorite place for breakfast. They have the best pancakes ever. The apple pancakes are my favorite! They also have an assortment of different omelets and tasty, homemade kolaches. Great inside or outside dining with a view of the park, creek, and of course, the ducks!

This is a neat little place with a cool patio. The breakfast was normal fare with a few twists on omelets. We didn't try the pastries. The pancakes were awesome. Great coffee and cool vibe.

This is is a great place to dine. The service was excellent as was the food. Make sure you have plenty of time. They make everything from scratch and it's not a quick lunch. The wait is worth it.
