Plan to be transported to Germany when you pass under the ivy-covered trellis and enter the outdoor dining section on your way to the entrance of this restaurant located on Capitol Hill. Yes, you have your choice of dining inside or out. The restaurant is in a former multi-level house but Cafe Berlin is on the ground level making it easy for those who are stair-challenged. The German beers are served in their actual German beer glasses and taste great with appetizers like potato pancakes. Lots of pork, veal and sausage dishes to choose from but save room for desert. This is a great place to linger over a glass of beer, wine, or your favorite drink and watch the world go by.

In a neighborhood on Massachusetts ave is this fine restaurant. A 15 minute walk from union station and our hotel, we met a local friend there. This is one of her favorite restaurants and in the neighborhood. We sat outside and had really good goulash and sauerbraten. Reasonable prices too. We would definitely go againe.

The owners Peggy & Irene make this restaurant exceptional. Their fruit soup & asparagus dishes in the spring r incomparable. The wiener schnitzel & sauerbraten r always excellent. Very large selection of German beer. Pleasant patio.

a good meal and great choice of german beer. Enjoyed a late afternoon lunch. staff was very pleasant and attentive for us. The entrees were well presented and dessert we chose was a raspberry lindzer torte that was delightful and not heavy. Outside patio table on pleasant afternoon was enjoyable and the city traffic though close ,was not bothersome because of the outdoor setup. Having eaten there several times ,I found consistency in meals and service.
