    The breakfast here is fabulous. The pancakes and eggs arlington are both very nice 😋
  • Jake D.
    Great food, fantastic service.Weekday lunch looks very business-y (read: lots of work suits), but I was fine in a button down
  • Stergios A.
    Awesomeness in everything. Snitzel is superb!

    The Vanilla cheesecake is from outside this world 🌎

    The Vanilla Cheesecake is a must have for anyone with a sweet tooth. And lactose tolerant, of course.

    The lobster roll is amazing. As is the service. It is a fancy establishment, so dress up and enjoy yourself.

    The atmosphere was cold, it lacked character and soul. The tea came cold and tasted more like water. The eggs benedict sauce was not good. And everything was so expensive. Not worth my time and money.

    A step up from Costa or Starbucks with fast lunches, coffee & tea and heavy-handed, but still appealing European pastries. Sit at a table and a server will assist or order take away at a register.

    The heyday of this place is clearly OVER. Overcooked, rubber chicken. Unacceptably slow service. Terrible for the price all around.

  • Natalia Q.

    The low-lit, low-ceilinged rooms are pretty great, and the all-day menu mimics the same feel with old-style Germanic standouts like wiener schnitzel, in addition to other European classics.

    Old grand cafés of Europe style, this is a wonderfully fancy option to get food any time during the day. The portions are gigantic, e.g. Schnitzel bigger than your head.

    Waiting for a table at their fab bar is no punishment. The food is some sort of delicious Habsburger-nostalgia with schnitzels, goulash and a konditorei. And late-night, so you can go AFTER the show!
