My wife and I had sandwiches here one day for lunch. Very different sandwich choices and sandwich names. Have to admit I can't remember the names of what we had. I do know that the mix of favors was most amazing. What I can tell you ... if you are in Government Camp ... would you be wise to choose... More

Lots of sandwiches and subs built to order on fresh bread. The turkey avocado was good for two meals. Attached to an arcade above Ratskeller funky but fun.

We ordered the 20 oz cup of drip coffee and it was excellent. Nice and strong without being burnt or bitter. Happy we found this place!

Excellent food, service and quaint atmosphere. Second year in row and we will b back! The food was hearty, delicious with large proportions. The house made Bloody Mary is highly recommended! The garnish was yummy as well as cute!

Cute cafe, very good food. Unfortunately their water pipe broke due to the freezing temperature. Therefore no espresso machine, briefly had hot cocoa but ran out of that while we were there mid-day, no hot water for tea. They did have ice water....

The good: tasty sandwiches, good variety, arcade. The bad: Slow, impersonal service. Loud clanking drink refrigerator that drove us nuts.

I stopped for a quick breakfast bite and a toilet pit stop. They said to go to the bar downstairs which wasn't open. The museum was the next option which opened a few hours later. Not good Tourist places without necessary services just don't cut it

Don't pass this one by simply because of it's looks - you will wait in line because this is where the locals eat - very good food at a very good price.

Excellent latte. The Alpenglow sandwich was delicious and huge, as was my husband's Avalanche. Even their basic grilled cheese plus with roast beef (because the teenager doesn't like veggies on his sandwich) was excellent. Fresh ingredients, helpful staff, very casual cafe with limited seating inside. Also had exceedingly patient staff who were gracious and kind to the rather demanding jerk... More
