Small, inviting restaurant serving good food. All food cooked/prepared there. NOT a chain restaurant setting. If crowded, can order the food to be eaten in Paul's Pub next door.

Ate here while visiting friends in Sierra Vista. It's a great locally owned / locally run place. Small and inviting the staff was very friendly and service was prompt. They cook all the food so if your expecting chain restaurant pre prepared speed, don't. Take...More

I had house specialty-- cordon bleh which unfortunately was over cooked. However I opted out of warm potato salad for sauerkraut which was amazing as was their cole slaw. Yummy fresh greens and cranberry sauce were added as a garnish. I was quite full.

Very good food and friendly staff to help guide you to the perfect German dinner. It is a little small so plan to make reservations or get there early.

After living in Europe for almost 3 years I have found it hard to find good, authentic German baked goods in the States. Until I found the German Cafe. The baked goods are delicious! My tastebuds felt as if they were back in Germany! The...More

This is an unassuming place on a back street in a strip mall, but when you step through the door, it's like being in a little family place in Germany. The food is very good. We've been there twice on a weeknight & both times...More

Library better. They have cafe in bldg if study rooms taken.
This reviewer is accusing us of criminal activities, having servers under age, serving alcohol. All our servers are 21 and above. This info was also reported to the owner of the building that owns the liquor license. The above stated sausage that was said it $7.00 is according our menu $4.50. The customer was informed at the time. A substitute side dish was not offered since the customer agreed to wait for the potato salad that took exactly 5.-6 minutes according to my kitchen manager. These are just a few of the errors that were posted by this customer. Tripadvisor administration was also informed. For more info, please contact the German Cafe! Annette Engols (owner)

I have paid with credit card every time I have eaten there. :)
I would like to know if the German Cafe still only accepts cash. In today's world, that is almost archaic. Carrying a credit card is safer. Does anyone know?
