The family owners of this restaurant work the counter, wait tables and do all they can to make their clients feel welcome. The food is exceptional, as is evidenced by the large number of locals who are regulars, and the baked goods "the best".

This is a great place for picking up dinner on the way home. Skip the pre-made heat and serve stuff and instead order from the menu if you can wait for the preparation. It's just fresher and it's still warm when you get home. Beats...More

We drop in for lunch from time to time. Their sandwiches are unique, made fresh and delicious. The Norwegian and the Ruben are our favorites. Bakery breads, local veggies and wonderful desserts. If you are tired of the regular fare you will enjoy this place.

The food was good, the people are friendly, and the prices were good. What more does a restaurant need? They have a good selection of German food, and Balkan foods. My bratwurst was really fine.

The owners and chefs are of German and Albanian origin, so their food is a collection of Germand and Mediterranean. The food is fresh prepared each day, as are all of the breads and salads. The taset of fresh food cannot be rivaled, and it...More
