Cafe Europe

Wednesday, February 11th, 2009

cafeeurope.jpgA hearty antidote to anything smoked in tea leaves or nestled on a bed of microgreens, Cafe Europe is old school, Old World, rib-stickin’ Deutches-essen.

From wurst and sauerkraut to cabbage and schnitzel, what continues to¬† bring in the early-bird crowd and local families again and again — solid German and Austrian classics that can be near-impossible to find elsewhere in the North Bay. Plus, there’s no denying the draw of Cafe Europe’s kitschy cuckoo-decor and ever-present host, Herbert Zacher.

Don’t Miss Dishes: Potato Pancakes, Sausage Platter with sauerkraut and cabbage, Jaeger Schnitzel with mushroom sauce and spaetzle.

Cafe Europe: In the St. Francis Shopping Center, 104 Calistoga Road, Santa Rosa, 707.538-5255. Lunch (Weds.-Sat.): 11:30a – 3p; Dinner (Tues.-Sat.): 4:30p – 9p; (Sunday): 4:30p – 8p

  1. Ah – Cafe Euprope – YUM! The pork chops, the meatloaf, the schnitzel, their food is fab, the service efficient, vegetables appropriate and fresh – not canned or frozen – prepared aldente. It’s a deservedly busy place as they provide quality and value.

    They express appreciation of your patronage.. Many restaurants could take a clue from these folks. My only complaint is that if yo have to wait for your table, they don’t have a great waiting arrangement. Oh well – perfection is hard to achieve.
