“Fresh Pretzels”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Buy a bag of pretzels from the bulk bun section and a couple of jars of specialty mustards for dipping. Also check out the gift shop... one of the best import shops around.

“A little piece of Europe but be prepared to wait.....”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

This a wonderful little place for those who miss European deli and foodstuff. Be it Dutch stroopwaffels, german mustards, or amazing coldcuts, they have it there. And a very cool kitchen and gift store too, if you are looking for interesting german/swiss/austrian gifts. But be prepared to wait to pay. Their customer service sucks- the day I visited, I waited 10 minutes in line, even though there were 4 people behind the counter and it was not busy. Somehow, they managed to not see me waiting to pay.This happened the previous time I was there too.

“Excellent German/European deli”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

Store and restaurant with excellent ready-to-go deli foods and home-cooked meals. Great selection of German/Swiss/Austrian and other European imports, as well as gifts and things. Excellent for eating in or taking out.

One of the best places for home-cooked, delicious meals like cabbage rolls, schnitzels, sausages, meatballs... Must save room for desert. Intimate, bright and lovely place.
