If you are looking for the best Rueben around, then go to Cafe International. It is a little pricey, but enough for 2 people, easily. What I reallyt love about it is sitting outside at the sheltered picnic tables. You are high enough to enjoy watching the tubers come down the Chattahoochee River. If there are no tubers, then also... More

We always love coming to Cafe International! Our large party of 20 (5 families) was served well by Nicole and Stephanie. Reubens are always our favorite here! We had a slight mix up with our drinks, but Bruce fixed it right away. Looking forward to next time!

My wife had a cheeseburger and I had the Rueben. The food was great and the staff was friendly. We would definitely have to go back again.

On a recent trip to Helen Ga., we stopped in at Cafe International for lunch. The lunch special was a combo of worst and schnitzel, with German potato salad. My wife had the Rubin sandwich, which was said to be the best around, and it was. I ate my schnitzel so fast I forgot to take a picture, so I... More

This place was awesome, we sat outside along the river and the view was amazing, try their famous Ruben sandwich, you will not be disappointed. This place came highly recommended by family and we were not disappointed.

A great place to sit and watch people tube the river have a cold beer and enjoy the ever so famous Camel Rider sandwich.

Very busy! The service was good and the food was delicious. Everyone at our table was more than happy with our choices. Hard to say what was best. The salad was different and delicious. Spiral ham may be the best I have ever tasted. The potato salad is a must try.

My husband and I chose to eat here as our other food options were closed for the day and this restaurant has free parking. We split the German sausage platter. We had sauerkraut and potato salad. I typically do not like the different types of sausages but these were tasty! We ended the meal with the German chocolate cake! It... More
