The Village Corner Restaurant Review

: Founded in 1974 by Claus and Hilde Friese, The Village Corner is both a restaurant and a bakery. The couple’s son, Carl, is executive chef. In addition to the dining room, a beer garden on the terrace provides additional seating in summer. Consider a hot pretzel with house-made German mustard as a starter. We enjoyed the sauerbraten with red cabbage and spätzle. Classics dishes include German pancakes with sour cream, schnitzels, wursts (sausages), rouladen and schwine haxe (pork osso buco). After dinner, you'll be invited to check out the on-site bakery to choose a dessert among the European cakes and tortes. We suggest the strudel warmed in the oven. Espresso is the real deal. The wine list offers one decent Riesling and a German red (Spätburgunder), with the remainder coming from around the globe but having little to connect them with the food. The beers are much more interesting.
