The Berliner Kindl Restaurant in Black Mountain

Hi everyone -- Happy Friday!  I'm so glad the weekend is here again.  This is my last post about our trip to the mountains back in July.  Earlier, I wrote about the Cherohala Skyway, The Blue Waters Mountain Lodge, and the town of Hendersonville.

On our way home from the mountains, we stopped to eat lunch at a little German restaurant called The Berliner Kindl.  The Berliner Kindl is in the town of Black Mountain.  The restaurant is authentically German; a married couple owns and operates the restaurant, and the husband grew up in Germany.



We've eaten here before, and it's always a good experience.  You can get sandwiches or an entree such as bratwursts, schnitzel, pork roast, kassler rippchen, served with potatoes and red cabbage.  On this particular visit, my husband got a meal and I got the ham and swiss on rye sandwich with chips and a pickle.  We had cherry strudel for dessert, and it was to die for.

I love the decor in the Berliner Kindl; it has such a Bavarian look and feel about it.





I love the lace curtains in the window.  There were even lace panels on the skylight over our table -- so pretty!





The restaurant also has a small gift shop with all kinds of pretty German items -- love these beer steins.



And guess what?  Lynn at Happier Than a Pig in Mud, if you're reading this, I found a girlfriend for Earl!


Isn't she just the cutest Fraulein?  :)




As always, thanks for stopping by.  I'm honored that you take time to read my posts, and I love your comments.  Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Oh I'd very much enjoy visiting that restaurant and pretending that I understand German better than I really do. I can at least read "Good Day!" We had a local German restaurant for many years called the Kornhaus Keller, which my dear German friend Claudi told me basically meant "silo." Well really! LOL

  4. I love German food, and I would really enjoy visiting here. There is a Bavarian tavern here (actually two) and one has really authentic food. I like to go this time of year coming up for Oktoberfest. I'd love a vacation such as this one, Denise. One of these days! xo

  10. I love German food, too, Denise. When we were in South Asheville, we ate at the Black Forest restaurant and my hubby and I shared a German platter. We were able to taste four different meats and four sides. We love it and even went back for lunch. They boast of the best Reuben in town and my hubby said it really was. They also serve ItalIan food at this place. You might try it sometime on one of your excursions.

  13. Hi Denise, this looks like a fun place to visit with wonderful, tasty food :o) Love the steins in the gift shop.

    Thank you for your lovely comments on the new pond. We are very fortunate to have had the same dear neighbour for the last 35 years, so there was no problems caused by the flood! The blue bird really needs a new coat of paint - I picked it up some years ago from a garden centre, being blue it caught my eye of course ;o) I think it's a kind of kingfisher, but I still love it :o)
    Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.

  23. Hi Denise, I enjoyed your tour of the charming restaurant. The decor and atmosphere looked like a wonderful place to experience a good meal and a fun time. It sounds like your trip was very nice. I love taking the scenic route on the Cherohala in the fall. The scenes are spectacular at that time of year. I hope to find the little restaurant next time. ---------- Shannon
