    Pro tip: Order the Schnitzel with Spätzle and cucumber salad but switch the meat from chicken to veal.

    Brunch centers around sausage and beer, some excellent waffles with lingonberry cream, and some deep German stuff like a pan-fried pork and veal terrine with a fried egg on top, and the fish platter. Read more

    Es gibt megaviele verschiedene deutsche Biersorten und eine ziemlich lange, sehr deftige Speisekarte (übrigens voller Rechtschreibfehler). Das Interieur kalifornisch-modern, die Bedienung freundlich.

    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.

    Switch out or order a side of these brussels sprouts! They are crisp, fresh and provide that crunch to complete your meal. Prost, I've paired mine with a tasty Radeberger.
