Edelweiss, as its name suggest, is a little piece of Germany. The food is excellent and the mouthwatering cakes and pastries are incredible . Their own cheese cake is fabulous and not too sweet. The hot food is simple but excellent,schniztels and bratwurst are fantastic. The staff are friendly and the place is spotless. After eating it has a marvellous store to browse. Wide ranging from kitchen utensils to cuckoo clocks. It is an experience not to be missed. I see that an earlier reviewer was complaining about waiting in line for ten minutes. How sad. As for the staff not attending, In all of my many visits I have never seen staff chatting whilst customers are waiting. To complain about this place says more about the complainant than the experience.

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.

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.

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.
