What a great little cafe with authentic German Food and wonderful service. The food was not only excellent, they give you hardy portions. We will definately make the trip down from Tucson to eat here again.

Amazing food. Quaint. Cozey. Extremely reasonable. No beer or liquor though. The portions are large, the service is good. Authentic....truly good food.

Coming from a heavy German background I have had the pleasure to taste a large variety of German plates in my day. When I visit the German Cafe it is as if I were back in Germany, seriously! The food is cooked with perfection, the staff is VERY kind and polite and last but not least the environment. The German... More

Much ado about this restaurant AND it is all worth it! Excellent schnitzel, home made sauerkraut and sweet/sour red cabbage. Don't look for a fancy place ... It is small and off the beaten path but golly was the food good. Everything was FRESH. Had the sausage sampler to start with and the schnitzel as the main course. Can't go... More

We lived in the FRG for four years (West Germany), and ate a LOT of German food. In 4 years, only had 1 bad meal. Won't go there. The German Cafe in Sierra Vista has authentic atmosphere, delicious German food, at affordable prices. I had the meat plate with red cabbage and spaetzle, my wife and everyone else had some... More

Having lived in Germany for over seven years, I was pleasantly surprised to find this small, genuine Gasthuas (Guest House) here in Sierra Vista, Arizona. The menu is full of German favorites, to include schnitzels (thin pork filets), wursts (sausages), spatzle (noodles),plus several other German favorites. The owner is a former native German, all foods are homemade with fresh ingredients,... More

This is one of the neatest little places to eat in Sierra Vista. A bit hard to find off the beaten path. Off Rt. 92, turn at Donavan Dodge (little street) it is in the back. Food was excellent, authentic like Grandmas. Loved the warm potato salad and coleslaw. Good pricing, neat and clean place. Will go back for sure,... More

I'll be honest, I thought this place would be larger given its reputation, buts it's a small hole in the wall kind of place that's out of the way. The food felt authentic. It was hot, tasty, and plentiful! Definitely a great change of pace from the chains and the Mexican food places that populate this southern Arizona micropolitan area.... More

This was hands down the best German food I've had at a local restaraunt and that comes from traveling all over the US for business - who'd have thought it would have been in Sierra Vista, AZ? If you're in town, it is a must visit!

This is a very small place. The cook and owner is from Germany, so every item made is authentic German style from her area of Germany. From time of order to time of food served, it does take awhile, but you will enjoy so have patience.
