We had a delightful couple of hours, wandering through and trying different things. They had my chocolate popcorn, so that went into my bag, as well as a Texas cowboy boot Christmas ornament to celebrate our holiday in this great state.
We also lucked out and found a Weinacht Stollen, a German Christmas cake, filled with fruits, almonds and powdered sugar. We tried a piece and it was delicious! I think it may make the Thanksgiving table - I don't know if I can make it till Christmas.
The house was a beautiful century old house that saw the transition to restaurant very easily. The rooms seemed to flow into each other and everywhere were touches of the Old World, from walking canes and hats to a cuckoo clock.
I started with a great glass of Spaetlese and some wonderful German bread, a marbled rye bread. Dave ordered his usual Jaeger schnitzel and home fries. By his silence, I knew his meal was delicious. Mom and I ordered the Sauerbraten and spaetzle. It was good except that the gravy was a little too vinegary and seeped into the pasta. By the time we left, all I could taste was vinegar. But, the atmosphere made up for it.
The only word I could come up with was wow. Although it was a full liquor store, it felt like a Toys R Us for winos. After a box full of wines and two bags of beer, we finally headed out.
