A neat little out of the way place. Excellent German pastries. Good German deli offerings. Nice place to go for a new adventure. Great to return again. Menu varies. Call to find out what cooking today. I'll bet it's going to be good.

My husband loves German food so we drove to Kemper from Temple to try their food. The restaurant is small but has a bakery, German food retail area and a small deli with meat and cheese to purchase, as well as the restaurant. It is clean and simple in decor. Salad comes with all the dinners and you can choose... More

Have not eaten here in ages and won't again. Had wanted to try something different for date night. Now the food was not bad just nothing that would make me come back. My food did not look anything like the pictures on here. The side of potato I ordered should have never been plated. Looked like stuck leftovers scraped off... More

Have wanted to stop to eat here so many times and finally did. This will not be the only meal we have here ! This is a simple little restaurant/bakery that serves the most delicious German style food. So many choices it is difficult to choose. Can't imagine any choice being the wrong one ! The glass cases hold the... More

A friend mentioned this place and we stopped by on our way home from a road trip - it was on the way. We picked up sandwiches, rolls and pastries then stopped at a rest area for a picnic. Sandwiches were homemade and tasty. We sampled a variety of pastries and all were very good. My favorite was the pretzel... More

We visit this German restaurant every time we are in the Kempner area. The food is authentic German fare and the service is very friendly. My husband is reminded of his grandmother's cooking when we eat here. The apple strudel, raisin bread, various breads, and pastries are excellent. They also have delicious looking cheesecakes but I have never tried them.

Of course there is not very many options in the little town of Kempner, TX but their German food is very good. The last time I stop by and got a take out order we enjoyed it very much. Since I do not eat sweets, I still hear from other customers that their desserts and breads are still the best... More

This used to be our go to place for German food. It was the best. Over the last few months, though, we noticed some things starting to slip and finally learned that the German owner had sold to an American couple. First it was little things like switching to vegetable spread instead of butter. Then the spätzle started to come... More

We ate here January 2014, were disappointed and didn't return until this week. Come to find out, as of last summer, there are new owners and it is now wonderful. We've been twice in the last three days. The food is so close to authentic, the staff and owners are very friendly, the restaurant is kept clean, food is out... More
