They serve a huge glass of cider for €1.50, apple juice for the same price, and many kinds of German beer are available for different prices. A Frankfurter sausage is around €3, and if you are vegetarian, stick to good old handkas mit musik, around €3 euros. Handkas mit Musik has nothing to do with music, as it is hard cheese softened in vinegar with onions and served with German bread. I never thought that this combination could even be delicious, but it is exquisite. Service is efficient and food is fresh because the turnover is huge. Even the taste of cider is just different from normal restaurants; it is just more natural. There is green sauce on the menu too, Goethe's favourite when served with sauces or beef.
I also liked the way locals hanged out here: older Germans in very traditional clothing, families with children, and young people; all were enjoying the same atmosphere. It is something to see.
