Fodor's Review

This small eatery pays homage to its chef-owner's homeland by featuring plenty of Germanic specialties on the menu, including schnitzel, spatzle, sauerbraten, and a divine Black Forest cake. Indeed, the café is billed as "A Taste of Germany on the South Shore." Nevertheless, regional ingredients are a mainstay and twists on favorite regional dishes—such as scallop cakes or a maple-dressed spinach salad—appear as well. Like the place as a whole, Lothar Mayer is warm and unpretentious, so don't be surprised if he pops up tableside to greet you.
