It is common for a place to be popular with either locals or with tourists, but not both. One place that does get this rare vote of confidence from both teams is Kaffee Haus (pronounced ‘Coffee House’). For this to happen, they have to get a lot of things right.
We can all think of a place that started with a bang, only to be less than special only months later. Kaffee Haus has stayed consistant with things like food quality, pricing, and service. You will be welcomed by the same nice waitresses who brought you lunch four years ago!
And of course, there’s the food. Breakfasts at Kaffee Haus are traditional omelets, pancakes, eggs and bacon, as well as Mexican specialties like Chilaquiles or Huevos Rancheros. Try the Greek Farmers’ Breakfast – Eggs, Peppers, Tomato, Spinach, Olives and Feta Cheese. And they live up to the their name by offering over-sized Capuccinos and Lattes.
Lunch is a mix of recipes you would welcome on any menu back up north, and some surprisingly international choices too. There is the classic Club Sandwich, a Cobb Salad with blue cheese, and the famous Hamburger. So big that you will probably end up eating it with a fork and knife, it is topped with cheese and bacon, and served on a homemade bun. The daily specials include a Curried Chicken sandwich, and Schnitzel.
Kaffee Haus makes their own breads, and a fine assortment of pastries. Top on the list is the Apple Strudel. The German influence comes from Chef Uwe Holtz, originally from Germany, he now makes his home in Rocky Point.
Kaffee Haus is on Blvd. Benito Juarez, across from the boats before you enter the Old Port. Open seven days a week.
