Loved this restaurant. It seemed like it was german themed with the decor and the staff uniforms. Situated in a great location in the middle of Lincoln Rd., this restaurant is great for people watching and enjoying the morning, afternoon or evening. I ordered the Omelet and the servings were gigantic!

Staff was very attentive and I would definitely come back here again during my next visit!

Situated on Lincoln Rd. in the heart of Miami Beach. Nice place to sit outside if not too hot. Service was marginal but the waitress was friendly but the restaurant was pretty busy. Food was decent though not exceptional. We selected the spot primarilarily for its location.

Use to be my favorite place on Lincoln Rd to eat. Unfortunately - no more! Place was half empty, yet we could not get normal service. Waiter was wondering somewhere, Hot food arrived cold, salad didn't make it at all, kids order got mixed up...... Lots of fun! Another beautiful think: plates and leftovers are getting removed from the table while we eating and without asking! .... Looking for new favorite place.

This is one of the best eateries on Lincoln Road. It's location on this pedestrianized strip is perfect for taking some time out to just watch the world go by.
The menu and service is good (and much better than other similar spots on 'the road') but the real draw is the location.
Take some time out from the excellent shopping on Lincoln Road to sample the eclectic SoBe lifestyle as it passes by.

We were looking for a place to sit & people watch & just have a soft beverage & stopped at this place because it was beautiful, clean & different from anything else we had seen in Miami Beach. The old world European charm was refreshing. We were apprehensive at first because they were crowded & serving dinner. We afraid they would be annoyed at us just ordering ice tea but the hostess sat us with a smile & you'd think we were ordering lobster & champagne from the service we got from our waiter.

The table next to us started with soup. The gentlemen who ordered the homemade chicken soup loved it so much he ordered a second bowl. Seeing that, we not only ordered it but ended up ordering appetizers. The food was fabulous & all made from scratch. Can't wait to go back for dinner next time.

We also got a pleasant surprise when using the rest rooms. Walking through all the rooms downstairs & then up the steps to the second floor airy additional bar & seating felt like you were touring a castle in Great Britain!!! There was also a variety show there that night that was packed!

Just on all around great place! Wish I had a picture to share because I would have loved to have a visual memory!
