“Why Not??”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

The English translation of this business name is 'Why Not". After eating a piece of their Strawberry Cake I can think of no reason NOT to frequent this small bistro. The cake was wonderful. I stopped in a few more times while on the Island and the sweets in the display case never failed to taste as good as they looked. The owner was very friendly and the surroundings pleasant and of course because it overlooks the beach in West End the view and sunsets are amazing. This is a business I plan to frequent during my time on the Island and I would recommend it to others..

“Loved this place!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

We have been here for 6 weeks and went to this place as much as we could! We love the smoothies and great iced mocha frappuccino! For food they offer mainly bratwursts. Get the farmer's style eggs for breakfast! So good! I really enjoyed the curry bratwurst....seems so simple but is delicious! The coarse red brat is very good also. We always took a homemade cinnamon bun to go! The owners are very kind and have great service. They will even run out to buy more eggs when you want eggs at 3 in the afternoon! Certainly worth going to!

“Great German food beside West End Cigar Bar.”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

I added the "West End Cigar Bar" to the title in order to help you find the place. I actually walked up to this place thinking it was part of the cigar bar, but it is a restaurant by itself. The sign is a little hidden behind the beautiful palm trees. I am glad that I found it. A very polite German lady approached me and I asked her if this was the cigar bar and she said no it was a German restaurant. Oh boy did my eyes light up because I love pork sausages. So I ordered a cold German beer and sat outside so I could watch people and traffic go by. She brought me a menu and I ordered right away. I sat there and enjoyed my German beer and took some nice photographs and before you know it my food arrived. Her husband must brought it out to me and he is a nice gent as well. I cannot remember the correct German name for what I ordered, but I do know that my meal consisted of a very delicious bratwurst, think slice of very tasty ham, sauerkraut, a dinner roll and at least three, if not four, salads. The flavors that I experienced from that plate of food had me making funny noises while I ate. Yummy!! I struck up a conversation with the couple for a few minutes when I had finished my meal. They said they had opened up this place about three months ago. I am sure hoping that the community and tourists get a taste of their cooking so that they can make a good go of it because the food is awesome. I love the title of this place too because I get asked "Why" a lot when I go on adventures around the world and I always answer "Why not". Great job guys and I will be back for some more great authentic German cooking.

“Bratwurst & Sunset”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

A new place that sits just off the main drag in West End. Nice place to just soak up some views over a coffee, or an original German Bratwurst & Weizen beer on the deck while watching the sunset. The friendly couple from Germany are good spirited hosts and so is their amiable cat.
