What we're about


This was entered by the previous owner. Right now we don't have specific times to meet but it usually Tuesdays between 6 and 8 pm at Cornerstone Cafe on Good Shepherd Road in Naperville (around 75th & Gartner). And not every Tuesdya, but I schedule often. We also meet at restaurants.

We will meet every 6 weeks alternating between "European Lunch" for those interested in German cuisine and culture (everyone is welcome) and "Coffee and German Conversation" for those that specifically want to meet and speak strictly in German (all levels welcome). Over the course of the month I may post other events of interest such as foreign films.

The group is open to beginner German speakers and fluent natives or those simply interested in culture & cuisine from Germany or Eastern Europe. We will visit a variety of restaurants located in the western suburbs. Food lovers of all ages are encouraged to join us and experience the rich taste of German cuisine accompanied by warm & friendly conversation.

Our geographic radius for events is Glendale Heights to Orland Park & Aurora to Westmont.

Examples of restaurants - Schnitzel Platz (Glendale Heights), Bohemian Crystal (Westmont), & possibly Bavarian Lodge (Lisle)

Everyone is encouraged to suggest another restaurant that we can enjoy.

If you RSVP and then cannot attend, please update your RSVP accordingly. If you fail to be respectful to this group or no-show at least 2 times you will be removed from the group. Also if you are inactive for 4 or more months members will be removed from the group but will be able to rejoin when there schedule changes.
