Terrific and affordable Sunday brunch German style. Wide array of delicious offerings ranging from chocolate cherry waffles to sausage platters and eggs plus steak and brie. Six of us dined, all whom of which have spent time in Germany. The sauerkraut balls were a delicious...More

Charming place. Get a table outside if possible. Food was fresh, inventive, and tasty. It's not cheap, but then this is an expensive neighborhood. We've been three times now. Ask for the nightly specials. Seems like they don't push them very hard, but they always...More
