The Village Corner brings a touch of Germany to Stone Mountain Village with their full-service bakery, restaurant and tavern. Located in the downtown village, the Village Corner is owned and operated by Hilde and Claus Friese who moved to the United States from Munich and Hamburg, Germany.
The bakery originally began in 1974 as a wholesale bakery with a small additional luncheon room. All recipes were developed in-house. Hilde searched for all natural, local ingredients to use in the products. They later expanded to a different location with an extensive dining room and tavern reflecting German décor and culture.
Their lunch menu offers a number of sandwiches as well as German Specialties such as Wiener Schnitzel, Sauerbraten, and Gruyere Spaetzle. I had the German Sausage Plate for lunch, which included a healthy sampling of Bratwurst and Smoked Sausage along with Applekraut, Parsley Potatoes, German mustard and a French baguette. Overall, it was a tasty and filling dish. The Dinner menu include some of the lunch options as well as some additional German specialties. Don’t forget to order some of their giant German pretzels!
You can’t miss the restaurant with its distinctive architecture and signage at the entrance. The Bakery is located between the Tavern (to the left) and the Dining Area (to the right). The restaurant also features a large patio outside, perfect for Fall dining. Oktoberfest is celebrated outdoors on the 2nd weekend in October and includes live German music and dancers, food, arts & crafts and drinks.
The Village Corner German Restaurant & Bakery is located at 6665 James B. Rivers Drive, Stone Mountain, Ga. 30083.
