“Traditional, Local ingredients, Homemade, Informal atmosphere, Reasonably priced”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

The regular menu is limited to eight items including a schnitzel, pork steak baked with potatoes and tomatoes, cooked cheese, and homemade sausage.
An ever-changing posted menu with about six items reflects the importance of serving in-season dishes (see photo).
All breads, rolls, and cakes are baked on site.

My wife and I visited Café Alte Dortmühle in Bensheim as guests of a newly-discovered German family of my 3rd, 4th, and 5th cousins. We sampled almost everything on the menu. All was excellent. If you do not have the luxury of going in a large group, go back many times until you have a chance to taste it all.

It’s worth the short detour from Heidelberg, Manheim, or Frankfort.
