Welfare Café has had its ups and downs recently but is hanging in there on a recent visit. Menu portions (clearly for the schnitzels) have been reduced and the price point as well. A pork schnitzel @$13.00... with potato and spinach was excellent but curiously...More

The original menu said "Welfare. We are in it, not on it." Gabi turns out amazing meals in the tiniest restaurant kitchen I have ever seen. The schnitzel is pure perfection.

Everything about this place was great - but best of all was the food - poblano goat cheese dip? Vastly better than expected. Candied jalapeños on a ground sirloin burger - wow. Wish we lived closer so we could come back!

Don't let the name fool you. This is a very nice restaurant that serves upscale food. Recommend reservations on the weekends as it can fill up fast.
