Nice interior, good selection on lunch menu. The sausages and pork loin were good, and the sides were excellent. We took advantage of the "pay cash, get a free dessert cupcake" and it was well worth it. Only one server for the lunch crowd, and...More

This was a total surprise. Delicious German food in a Northern California seaside town. The decor was cute, the server was friendly and efficient, and the food was delicious. The menu offers several German national dishes, as well as some more typical American diner fare.

Casual but not "fast food" casual. The atmosphere is friendly with a German pub look about it, very welcoming and comfortable. Kids will be comfortable too. This time of year it's a long walk but a very short drive. Probably... More
