“if you like tradition this is your place!”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

The Thurman Café is always busy with visitors from near and far, The Café has earned a reputation for being a German Village highlight. I was able to get a table with little wait between 11 am and 11:30 am. The food was great and the services good.

“The best Burgers and amazing bar ever!”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

I went here at the request of my son who was in hospital after a road accident. He has seen it on Man vs Food TV show and wanted to try one of their now famous burgers and help his recovery in hospital. I stopped and had one of ther speciality burgers and as burgers go it was the absolute tops. The bar is unique with old photos and $1 bill messages pined to the wals ne ceiling. The staff we welcoming feelie sly and attentive in a genuine way. There was a great relaxed atmosphere there and conversations were struck up with both local and out of town customers.
So a 'mercy mission' for my son turned out to be real treat. I understand that booking is recommended although we were sited straightaway.

“Great tasting Flat pizza!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

I love thin crust pizzas and this place had a great tasting crust. Their mushrooms were superior- sliced portobello and their batter was crispy and very flavorful! Had a salad with grilled chicken also good. I would order their food again! Didn't dine in maybe next time.

“Can you finish it?”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

You must try the Thurman Burger. It is guaranteed to satisfy the biggest appetites. You will probably have plenty left over to take home for snack later.
