Dreseden Cafe — Handmade sausage & Great German food!

21 Jul

I have always loved German food, and for some reason, good German food is not easy to find in the San Antonio area.  So when I heard about the opening of the Dresden Cafe on Thousand Oaks, I couldn’t wait to go. And I wasn’t disappointed.


Located in an unpretentious shopping center, the Dresden is small, but the flavors are big. The banner offers “free samples all day,” and upon entering my friend and I were warmly greeted — and then the samples began!  We sampled each of the five homemade sausages — traditional German brat, garlic, slightly spicy Valencia, a good Hungarian, and a spicy Czech.  All were good.  We didn’t sample all of the salads, although we were offered the chance.  We were ready to make our choices and eat!

I chose the Hungarian sausage, and it seriously tasted like the sausages my Hungarian relatives made when I was a child. The roll was also fresh.  The cold French potato salad was good, but the cold rotkraut (red cabbage) and cold sauerkraut were outstanding!  If you think you don’t like sauerkraut, you need to try the fresh offering here.

And to complement your sausage, you can choose from two homemade mustards — beer ‘n’ brat or habanero — or you can choose from the other variety of condiments on offer.

And be sure to save room for a slice of the dense, rich orange cake. This European-style, flavorful cake is alone worth the trip.

Drinks come in cans and bottes, and to the Dresden’s credit, there is a recycling container for empty containers.

My meal at the Dresden — a sausage and roll, three sides, a soda and a slice of orange cake — was right about $10. It was a real bargain, and I will definitely be back.
