German Food in Leavenworth, WA

German Food

Do you consider yourself a sauerkraut connoisseur, a schnitzel epicure, a sauerbraten gastronome? Well then, Herzliche Wilkommen! Leavenworth WA has several options for indulging your Bavarian cravings. We love everything about Leavenworth, the sights, the sounds, the tastes and the scent of sauerkraut in the air! We got an email recently from a visitor to Leavenworth. Dr. and Mrs Shilts of Maryland took on the task of finding the best schnitzel in Leavenworth. They've shared their findings with us here.

Whether you're looking for upscale European cuisine or gourmet brats and dogs, Leavenworth is the place for good German fare. Several village restaurants make their own sauerkraut, and bake their own Bavarian cakes and sweets.

One of our favorite Bavarian restaurants is Andreas Keller. It's located in a lower level on Front Street. The atmosphere is cozy with the warm wood decor. The food is delicious. We enjoy the sausage sampler. The Bavarian soft pretzel is fresh baked and so good. The stone ground mustard served with at each meal is also available to purchase and enjoy at home. Andreas Keller offers a wide selection of German beers to go with the authentic German sausages.

Nearly every restaurant in town has a selection of German specialties on its menu. Sure, you'll find pizza on the menu at Baren Haus, but you'll also find delicious German sausages with housemade German potato salad.

Café Mozart is romantic, European style dining at its best. You'll find choice cutlets prepared in a variety of styles. And here you'll be able to start your meal with a delicious cheese fondue.

If you're looking for a boisterous good time, King Ludwig's offers live music and a dance floor on the weekends and a wide variety of unique German specialties, including Schweinshax'n (rotisserie broiled pork hock.) They also offer fantastic family sized Bavarian platters for 4 or 6 diners, and can accommodate large groups.
