Restaurants in the heavily trafficked towns along the Romantic Road tend to be crowded during peak season, but if you plan your mealtimes around visits to smaller villages, you will be rewarded with Franconian or Swabian cuisine that is less expensive and may also be locally sourced. Some of the small, family-run restaurants close around 2 pm, or whenever the last lunch guests have left, and then open again at 5 or 5:30 pm. Some serve cold cuts or coffee and cake during that time, but no hot food.
