A Bistro featuring German/Austrian Cuisine
Formerly called the Stuf’t Potato, the Vienna Bistro enjoys one of the best reputations between San Francisco and Oregon. It makes everything from scratch and in house, including their wonderful desserts.
Ivonne Morgan, the owner and chef, has owned four other restaurants including the well-known Cafe Vienna in Sacramento. After retiring from Cafe Vienna she realized that retirement had come too early. Then a friend who lived in Eureka told her of a perfect little spot on E Street, and she and her son Joseph packed up and moved. After five years the restaurant outgrew its E Street location and moved to Broadway, where you’ll still find it today.
Their original vision was to perfect the stuffed potato concept and franchise it. To offer a bit of variety, they also offered a different German dish each day, calling upon their background of extensive experience and classical training to prepare their fine European cuisine. Everybody wanted more and more of the delicious German food, and so a different kind of restaurant developed. Despite having achieved enviable name recognition with the Stuf’t Potato, Ivonne bowed to the inevitable and changed the restaurant’s name to the Vienna Bistro, a more appropriate choice that better reflects its nature.
