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.

We tried this restaurant because of the reviews, and boy were we disappointed! The restaurant is small, and when we walked in, the restaurant was only about half full... the server was busy doing her thing, but she never acknowledged our presence, so we finally...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

Been to Sierra Vista for 35 years but only recently found German Cafe. Wow. Fantastic German food. Cafe seats about 30 and it was busy. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Jagerschnitzel is fabulous. A must visit for anyone visiting southern Arizona.

Very small restaurant, probably seats 25. We were there on Tuesday which is schnitzel night😀 And wasn't disappointed. Portions are generous and the food authentic. Service was very good as well. We would return.

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?
