I've eaten there many, many times. Mostly breakfast and dinner. Stuffed eggplant is my favorite. Sometimes a short wait because they don't seat many in this ancient basement under an old hospital.

We had a large group and received incredible service with personal attention by the owner and her sweet daughter!! They served 18 meals, quickly, hot, and all at the same time. Don’t miss the pancakes, they were an add-on and so yummy!!

My husband and I always visit here everytime we come to Fredricksburg. Love the German food an the atmosphere.. it is in an old hospital , love all the stone walls. Only downside, deep stairs to eat to the main floor. Not handicap accessible.
