    I'm a potato salad snob, amd theirs is among the best I've ever eaten. That's saying something because I've eaten a lot of potato salad all over, from Germany to Calif.

    Ignore the crazy lady upstairs. If you rent upstairs from a restaurant you cannot claim to be surprised by there being a restaurant downstairs.

    Turns out, the pretzel dough is sourced from an old family recipe at Esther’s Bakery, a German-owned ma and pa establishment in Mountain View. Read more

    badass charcuterie plate and no-mayo potato salad. screw Flour + Water down the street, you can actually get a place to sit, eat and drink some german brews without too much waiting

    For the BEST in German beers and brats (not to mention the potato salad and spatzle), look no further. Despite the name this IS a sit-down restaurant (with some bar stools) with lots of seating. Excel Read more

    Get a boar sausage, or the amazing spatzle with bacon, but do not miss the pretzel rolls—get two of them. Afterwards, mosey over to Shotwell's down the street for one more beer.
