As the bakery’s customers grew, so did the popularity of Hilde's extraordinary cooking. Now in its third location, The Village Corner German Restaurant includes a traditional style German tavern, a European bakery and a cafe style dining room that serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. A traditional German menu contains potato pancakes, Black Forest ham and Weiner Schnitzel among other selections. Our artistic and decorative bakery cakes are worthy of any special occasion.

Some things are better than other thiings.. Their love bugs are addictive...and is a unique chocolate pastry...Bar is nice...I have had a good experience with the food. Lived in Germany and love the atmosphere...Homemade breads...Some of the baked goods are not well made...It is a matter of getting to know the place and figuring out what is always good and what is always mediocre....Cool atmosphere in the suburb of Atlanta...Has a lot of fun events that I always plan to go to but never get there. Pumpkin bread is pretty good...Again, everything is homemade and that is always better than store bought...Give this place a chance.

4 Reviews in 2 years? I am obligated..

I frequent the Bakery often. There are alot of negative reviews on this website for the most awsome place in town. I am sure that in the past( negative reviews are 4 in 2 years and way older) there may have been staffing problems or gratuity problems( Gratuity is written on menu) but I know that the place is clean, has awsome food & desserts. The bartenders Selena and Kristin are the best, so friendly and genuine, they care about your concerns and will go out of their way to make your experience a wonderful one. German food is prepared fresh, go to mcDs if you want speed. The Spetzel rocks my life along with the awsome drafts they carry. They might even give you a sample of your beer or Vino if you ask instead of demand. I love this place.. You will forever recieve my business.

Poor service. Mediocre food. D...

Poor service. Mediocre food. Do not honor reservations made on the web. I have been to the Village Corner several times but no more. I have overlooked the okay (not great) food and the strudel that is served cold. I have over looked the slow service. I kept coming back be cause it was the only German restaurant close by. No more. They botched our reservations on our anniversary dinner. Left word for the manager to call with staff and sent several emails.



Owner Contacted me to apologize for the troubles. Indicated that they were training new staff.

Very dirty, slow/rude service, dead bugs in cookie cabinet

It was embarrassing to bring my out of town friends to this disgusting establishment. Stale bread, dirty tables/bathrooms, rude service, dead bugs visible in the dessert displays and also inside on the windows. Astronomical prices for poorly prepared food. Health inspectors would have a hay day in this place for sure. Gratuity automatically added to our tab- five people eating- without one mention of it from the server. Unbelievable. Like the area around it, this place is sub-par.

Stay away from Mail Order

Used mail order. Products were delivered 2 days late for party even though they were ordered 10 days in advance. Shipment refused. Although they state "full refund" they will not credit my card payment or reply to numerous emails & mail requests.

Stay Away From Their Mail Order!

Placed an order 10 days in advance. It arrived 2 days late for the party. It was refused. Can not obtain refund on my credit card after E-mails, letters and calling. They advertise satisfaction guaranteed but ignore you once they get the $.

Good Food, well done

Food was excellent, Great German cuisine. Entree selection is limited but everything we ate was well executed and tasted as expected. Great selection for dessert - save room. Hard to do that if you love good beer in 23oz glasses. Ten minutes from Stone Mountain Park.

Good Times

My wife and I were vacationing in the area. We saw the place during the day and decided to go later that night. We had a great time when we got there. It was our first time trying German cuisine. We didnt know what to get, but the owners were very helpful in helping us to decide. We ended up with a platter of different sausages, potatoe pancakes and such. The beer selection was great. Overall I would like to stopp there again.

awlful!

Everything was terrible. The food was poor quality, the place was dirty and there was hair in my dinner. It used to be such a nice place to eat now it should be closed down.

nice but not great

Nice outdoor seating, once we got sat which took about 20 minutes and they were not even busy. The menu was limited especially for lunch/brunch. Service very disjointed. The sausage platter was excellent. I must say it was better than the German places we've eaten at in Helen- those were horrible. I would go back here to have some beer and sausage.

Very Disappointed

My husband and I have patronized the Village Corner Bakery in Stone Mountain on several occasions, mainly to support businesses in our neighborhood. The food was just ok and the cakes use to taste as described on their website. This year I ordered the Grand Marnier liqueur cake for my boss, based on the description of having, ?4 layers of yellow cake soaked in Grand Marnier liqueur?. I told my boss about it and he was excited. To our disappointment and my embarrassment, there was not a hint of the orange liqueur. It basically tasted like a yellow cake with butter cream. My other complaint is when I placed the order the person I spoke with was rude. However, when I called to complain to the owner about the cake I had purchased, I found out that the rude person I had placed the order with was the owner and he was still rude! He asked, ?What do I want him to do?? I said check with the baker to insure the liqueur was not left out. He said he would and call me back. Of course I have not heard from him even after calling back and leaving a message. It would appear that customer satisfaction doesn?t matter to him, but it matters to me so that is why I am writing this review. Businesses like this don?t deserve our hard earned money. Don't waste your money here. There are a lot of businesses that take pride in customer satisfaction and the quality of their food.

Sehr Gut

This is the best German food I had since I left Germany many years ago. The prices are reasonable and the food delicilous. The desserts are to die for. The building is quaint and the service great. I have never had a bad dish.

SURPRISINGLY GREAT FOOD!

I don't understand the bad reviews-we went here last weekend and had an incredible meal where EVERY SINGLE THING was delicious. I've had plenty of mediocre brunches in this town, so I wasn't expecting much, but we were so happy to have such a great experience.

I got the potato pancakes with smoked salmon, and they were delightfully crunchy, and also came with the traditional sour cream and applesauce (which tasted homemade and had cranberries in it-YUM!)

My husband's sausage platter was so tasty that I kept asking for bites, and my daughter had an apple pancake that was packed with green apple slices and came with real freshly whipped cream and some of the best bacon I've ever had.

The bread was wholesome and fresh and the service was friendly.

This is a new fave and I am bringing out of town guests this weekend. A treat!

Good beer selection and pretty good food

Nice selection of beer that changes from time to time, friendly bartenders, quiet and NO SMOKING inside. Okay for kids - well behaved customers. I would appreciate some additional Americanized snacks, they don't quite get the right formula for nachos, but the snitzel-waggen-furter-fruten German stuff is good. Nice atmosphere, but I would like to have a lock on the men's room door. Surprise?

Much less than expected.

Hello, my fiance and i are knew to georgia. we visited this restaurant with some of our neighbors two weekends ago only to find an overall bad experience with a very upsetting credit card bill two weeks later. we had been charged gratuity twice because we left a tip without knowing that it was already included for only 5 people dining. hoping to find an oktoberfest celebration, we instead found rude service (10 minutes to be greeted at our dirty table), stale bread as an appetizer and a dishonest server who did not mention the added gratuity to our food and beverage check. we obviously do not plan to return. i hate to leave negative feedback but this experience was awful. we're from southern california and so far the ""southern hospitality"" we heard so much about isn't what we expected at all.

A good eats gathering place with real Deutsche beer. Authentic and not part of a chain...yeah.

Recommended by a friend quite a while back, I was surprised by the welcome and the menu. I came looking for a good Pilsner and left with a sense that I'd made some new friends. Since then, I'm back almost weekly.
Good food (wurst platte is a treat), good conversation, and a most excellent Dinkle Acher Pils. Tschuss

Great Bavarian Treats & beer

This place was a blast to visit and the food although a bit pricey was authentic and delicious. Service was friendly and attentive and the place was well kept and clean. bakery items were out of this world and very fresh. Stone mountain is much better after a few Pints of Spatens

waste of gas money

the entire city of stone mountain was a real waste of time for my group and i. we looked forward to a nice dinner in the german restaurant and ended up with upset stomachs (2 members) and people feeling kindof ripped off. prices were pretty high, and the food we received left alot to be desired. the women said that the restrooms were dirty too. lots of traffic also outside. not worth the trip. big lesson learned.
