About German Inn

Authentic German cuisine in rustic surrounds is what draws Hahndorf locals to return time and again to the German Inn on Main Street. Recycled timber, a cosy wood fire and a lively buzz of conversation awaits indoors, while on balmy days the terrace beckons to enjoy an ice-cold German bier or local Adelaide Hills wine while pondering a menu of wholesome fare. Perhaps share a sausage platter of bockwurst, bratwurst, cheese Kransky and Vienna sausage, with smoked pork Kassler chop, mashed potatoes, sauerkraut, a pretzel and mustard gravy; or braised pork belly, potato salad, pretzel and horseradish. Wrap your hands around a sourdough baguette, filled with a giant cheese Kransky, bacon, onion, cheese, mustard, BBQ and tomato sauce; finishing decadently with apple strudel and ice cream.

Cafe Assiette is situated in an historic stone building, on a corner, half way up the main street. The interior is comprised of three separate rooms with three fireplaces, creating a cosy cheerful ambience. Walls are predominately buttery cream with several feature walls of burgundy with light-shades to match. The back room has one whole wall of written messages called, "The German Message Wall", prints and framed photographs adorn the other walls, these are for sale. The floors are predominately pale natural wood, with the back room having carpet, large barrels, pitchers and tree branches give a lovely rustic character to the decor. An Al fresco dining verandah, sheltered by shade giving trees is ideal on hot sunny days. From a very large and varied menu from light lunches, through to hearty traditional German fare, we had, German Pork Belly, a slow braised pork belly in cashew & apple sauce served with mash & sauerkraut and green salad, a Lamb Shank French daub style, a tender, slow roasted lamb shank served on a bed of mash with salad, both of these dishes were a generous size and very delicious. At the entrance is a sign, "The best coffee in Harndorf" we would agree. Our taste buds were also enticed by the range of tantalizing cakes at the counter. The service was excellent, we were surprised how quickly our meals were served, altogether a delightful lunch, by an open fire, on a cold day, perfect.
