Established in 1870, the walls of this inviting bar and cafe are still adorned with the original murals, an antique wooden bar, and a wrought-iron balcony upstairs. The seafood is especially good here, and there are usually at least three excellent German beers on tap. The laid-back owner doubles as DJ on Friday and Saturday evenings (he’s pretty good). Open daily 8am to 9pm.
