Not many places like this in terms of quality and type. Kind of Hofbrau style. As many have said the cookies are amazing. Literally the best cookies I've ever had. No exaggeration. The Mac n cheese also worth a visit imo. And if you like German style meat options, this place is absolutely fantastic.

Super high quality food, h

Gunter's offers some great traditional German dishes at reasonable prices. The atmosphere is a bit towards "American Coffee Shop", but the similarity to a coffee shop ends there.
