Valhalla fulfilled! Due to business, a trip to California was required. This opportunity provided the ability to again dine at Café Mozart in San Juan Capistrano after a 3.5 year absence. On entering the courtyard, Carla saw my daughter and myself and, after a “triple take,” we had a joyful reunion. Her husband and co-owner, Hans, then came out to greet us. We had been anticipating the visit for a long time and were happily reintroduced to authentic German/Austrian fare, each bite savored. Our Wait Staff was a young man named Morgan. He is the heart and soul of the dining areas and simply outstanding in his interface with customers. With a promise to return, we then journeyed on to San Diego. The following afternoon, we spent three hours just “catching up” and having dinner. Although any meal selected is of outstanding quality, we harkened back to our ten years stationed in Germany and had Wiener Schnitzel. My comment was, “It is so light it could float above the plate.” The red cabbage and potatoes accompanying were delicious. For dessert, I chose Han’s Apfelstrudel and my daughter, Carla’s gluten free chocolate cake. As I said in my comments over three years ago, Hans is a Master Chef and Carla a Master at pleasing your palate with her famous desserts. If you are anywhere near San Juan Capistrano, then dining at Café Mozart is a must! Simply a jewel, Café Mozart is reminiscent of Old World dining. Well worth a visit and your patronage.
