The Schnitzel Parlour – A Sparkling Gem on Fredericton’s North Side

The Schnitzel ParlourJess loves all things German!  There’s no doubt that she was German in a past life. So when I heard about an authentic German restaurant in Fredericton, I knew that I had to surprise her.

I spent a fair amount of time on The Schnitzel Parlour’s website, reading the menu and the owners’ story.  The restaurant is owned by a German couple who came to Canada in 2000, and it truly is a reflection of their culture.

From the decor, to the music, to the authentic meals, it’s easy to imagine yourself transported to a cozy home in a quiet German town.  It really felt like we were visiting friends for supper. Everyone was extremely friendly, and we even got a chance to meet Hansel and Gretel, the family dachshunds!

JessThe food is amazing!  Because they incorporate chocolate into many of their recipes, I’ve decided that I will simply not eat another salad unless it is drizzled with chocolate maple vinaigrette!  As for the main course, my regular-sized schnitzel was very filling, and the double decadent chocolate truffle cake… Well I think that speaks for itself. We left The Schnitzel Parlour feeling very satisfied and promising to return soon.

For people looking to experience an authentic German dining experience, I highly recommend reserving a table at The Schnitzel Parlour.  Space is limited, as are their hours of operation (5pm-8pm Tue-Sat), although they do provide a take out service.

You won’t be disappointed.
