If you are looking for something special, something different from the usual pastries and cakes you find at most bakeries, go to Klingler's!!! There is nothing more relaxing than comfort food, a good cup of coffee in a warm,friendly environment. Or, if the weather's as nice as it is, you can sit outside and enjoy your treat. I heartily recommend... More

Visited while in town for a meeting. Tables are small and dining room feels a little crowded, but the breakfast is generous and delicious. Eggs were poached perfectly and potatoes (which are often ignored because they're usually filler) were well seasoned and loaded with bacon. Bought a crumb cake for later - a huge hit at home. Worth the short... More

Stopped for lunch. Enjoyed the sampler sausage platter with excellent sauerkraut and potato salad. The salad sampler was a bit sweet for my wife's taste, but others might love it. The bakery items, especially the authentic German apple strudel and apple dumplings were both excellent. Great place to get your German food fix.

Sundays are tough - go early or not at all. We prefer saturdays. Patio is awesome. We bring the dog. Not too busy - food is better. The custard on the French toast is the perfect complement! They give you a lot but you will wish for more!!! Service is good. Biscuits are good, skip the blueberry cornbread!

My favorite thing to eat is the Chicken Salad Salad. It has a generous scoop of chicken salad on a huge bed of lettuce and fruit. I always save room for dessert and any of the cheesecakes are my favorite. Get a cookie if you don't have room for a bigger dessert.

One of my favorite breakfast destinations. Outstanding pancakes and french toast. Their food menu is wonderful. Always a great experience. The sweet German lady who owns the place is a joy to be around and only adds to the charm of being there. Locals know this is the place to go, so if you're in town, go here. Their quiches... More

Every time we are in town we have to go to Klingler's. Every time it hits it out of the park. Had the sausage platter. Each sausage was cooked just right. The German potato salad had just the,right amount of vinegar bite. Of course, when it comes to dessert, no one can match Klingler's. Had the Black Forest cherry cake.... More
