Had several german specialities over the years. Roulade, Schnitzel, Brats, etc. The Roulade was meh. Schnitzel good and and the brats eh... wish they had grill marks or as least pan-roasting marks and not just boiled. The Rotkohl was very good and warm potato salad...More

Was difficult to find. Small bakery/restaurant with fresh baked goods with a German tilt (pretzel bread with cheese, etc) Selection is not huge but adequate and fresh.

If you crave some German Abendessen (not to mention some German baked goods) this is the place to go. Birgit and her staff will make you feel welcome and feed you well.

Authentic German breakfast options offered. We had the Pfankuchen and weisswurst with the runner's omelette. It was all delicious! It was busy the whole time, so it must be the spot for locals!

An excellent place for a European breakfast ... strong coffee, great pastries and breads, and a fantastic breakfast selection. I also come here to purchase pretzels for special occasions.

I have been going to Esther's for many years. I usually go for breakfast. Weekends can be busy and parking is always a challenge. You can find parking in the back off San Antonio. The menu is simple, not so many choices that you have...More
