Sabine’s Coffee Haus & Grill (Lexington, GA)
210 W. Main Street, Lexington, GA 30648, T: 706-743-7777
I had read many good things about Sabine’s Coffee Haus and had tried to eat there earlier, only to find them closed. This time they were open, and completely empty. It took the owner/cook/waiter some 5 minutes to appear! It is a very small restaurant in an only slightly rebuild home. Billed as a German restaurant, I was disappointed to see only two really German items on the menu: Bratwurst and Potato Salad. They were out of the latter.
I got the Bratwurst and M. the Grilled Shrimp PoBoy (together $14). Both came with a small back of chips. Despite is being the only ones there, it took the guy (who lacked personality and service skills) easily 20 minutes to make our food. I saw that the tiny shrimp came straight out of a Kroger frozen foods bag. The buns were stale and had been grilled, which made them even drier. The “PoBoy” was absolutely tasteless. My sausage had a decently authentic taste, but was quite dry and came with mustard and non-German sauerkraut.
Definitely one of the biggest disappointments in my Georgia experience.
