The German Café

Southeastern North Carolina's only German restaurant! Since 1985 we have been serving our patrons all manner of German food such as: schnitzel, wurst, reubens, German potato salad and house made desserts, our most popular being the Napoleon and strudel with fresh whipped creme! We are located at the parking lot level facing the Hotel Ballast & the Cape Fear River - look for our red, black & yellow awning. Reservations accepted, take-out available. We hope to serve you soon, PROST!
