A German Foods Delight at Hollerbach’s Willow Tree Cafe
After leaving the Central Florida Zoo, my daughter, Taylor, and I happened upon the cute little town of Sanford, Florida. In the middle of town, we saw an awesome looking German restaurant which I had to try. Hollerbach’s Willow Tree Cafe did not disappoint!
Why We Went: The Hollerbach’s Willow Tree Cafe offers German fare; in case you missed it, authentic German food. It proved to be the perfect place for this food lover. The restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor seating and has a large bar area, too.
What We Had: We chose the Gourmet Potato Pancakes as an appetizer. Riesen Brezen and Wiener Schnitzel were our lunch choices. The Riesen Brezen is a ten inch giant pretzel served with the most delicious German mustard and Obadza, a delightful beer cheese spread.
Something Special: The menu at Hollerbach’s Willow Tree Cafe is really unique. It is actually a newspaper style paper loaded with menu options, games, descriptions, and more. They encourage you to take it home with you, which I did.
Noteworthy: Our waitress, Debbie, was awesome. She was helpful with the menu options, attentive with the service, plus gave us a trivia question to win a magnetic cling-on.
Best Part of the Meal: Hollerbach’s Wiener Schnitzel is prepared in traditional Bavarian style. The scrumptious schnitzel comes in pork, veal, or chicken. The meal is served with a sweet red cabbage and Käse Späetzle, homemade egg noodles with sautéed onions, butter, and Swiss cheese. The noodles were amazing!
Bonus: Hollerbach’s Willow Tree Cafe offers family style meals that feed four to six people. Next time, I am bringing some friends so I can try everything on the King’s Feast, a huge sampler platter. The restaurant also features live entertainment on weekends plus has an amazing selection of beer.
My Rating Scale: 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest)= 8 1/2
