Schnitzel (Cafe Grundmann, Leipzig GERMANY)

Schnitzel (Cafe Grundmann, Leipzig, Germany)

The Spot: Cafe Grundmann

With a most fantastic Art Deco interior, Café Grundmann is like a living museum. Nearly all of the 1920s furniture is intact, including wonderful old booths and tables hewn from elegant hardwoods. The giant, round light fixtures are perfect reproductions of the Art Deco style and, up near the entrance is an antique coin-operated machine that contains tiny art pieces made by students at the local art college. (It’s the kind of machine that used to house slices of cake and pie in the 1930s.)

THE DISH: SCHNITZEL

The best schnitzel I’ve ever tasted is at one of the most wonderful—and authentic Art Deco—cafes in Europe, Café Grundmann in Leipzig Germany. It’s a generous portion of schnitzel with a light breaded exterior and juicy interior, coupled with a big, crisp salad and perfectly grilled potatoes and onions.

  1. Can’t get to Germany for the schnitzel, so do you have a few suggestions for places in and around San Francisco? Thanks.
