Jimmy and Lily ARE the Karling Inn. He cooks--European home style chef; she greets, informs, personally assists like your favorite aunt and generally makes life worth living with her constant smile, a twinkle in her eye and a soft laugh always lingering in her demeanor, as well as a ready assurance about a menu choice or a suggestion that they can do something off the menu if you so desire. Last night I had the roast duck of an entire lifetime (see photo posted by Regie), served with a baked black cherry dressing in the side and a compote of red cabbage, beets and onions that was melt (should I say "meld") in your mouth delicious. In not sure what the creamy grain served on the side was. Imagine a barley risotto with butter and cream. Whatever, it was an excellent complement. Even their bread was baked from scratch on their European bakery next door--don't miss their coffee and baked goods! Finally, the warmly lit interior with lots of wood and interesting architectural features reminds me of nothing less than a fine countryside inn on Poland, and on a very authentic and believable kind of way, rather than the hokey "faux" European so often seen in places with original names like "Heidelberg Inn". This place doesn't have to try. It's just plain great.
This is, without a doubt, the best restaurant & best kept secret in Central Florida. The food is European, perfectly prepared & served. My family has been celebrating here for 25 years--through several owners. The current iteration is perhaps the best ever. I always have the escargots & usually a schnitzel. His soups are to die for! As is the red cabbage! It's worth a drive from anywhere you happen to be staying! They have added a bakery which is open from 8 A-2P. Out of this world! Jimmy bakes all the lovely pastries. The coffee is wonderful! A morning treat.
5 stars is hard to come by for me and my husband. The best German restaurant, may take time to get food, but the food is fresh and very pleasant. The owner comes around frequently asking how we like it. Definitly will come back.

After leaving the Sugar Mill, bellies full and smiles painted on our faces, my husband made the comment, "why aren't there more restaurants like this?" And he's right! Being able to make your own breakfast, just the way you like it, while enjoying the company of friends and family, is a real treat. And knowing that everything is homemade with care, makes it even better. As other yelpers have said, they don't have AC or heat so you will have to be mindful of that. The dining room is not very large so on a busy day, you might have to wait for a table. They do however take reservations for parties of 10 or more. Breakfast is served all day, among sandwiches, salads and appetizer plates but you'll be sorry you didn't go for the pancakes. Prices are great, service was good, and the fact that the restaurant sits in the middle of a state park really seals the deal.
Yucky! One star because the place is kinda cool. The homemade peanut butter was alright but ($1.85) for a tablespoon!!! I make better healthy pancakes at home.
Make-it-yourself breakfast. The fun is in the camaraderie - have a sense of fun or it isn't really worth the drive. You get white and wheat pancake batter. Add in blueberries, bananas, nuts, etc. - be sure to get artistic! Make rainbows w/ blueberries and nuts. Draw faces with batter and put in eyes and hair. Have fun! Sunny days - bring a swimsuit and splash in the springs. Cloudy or cold - be ready to hike the wooded areas nearby - easy walks, tons of beauty to see. Take a ride of the boat or rent kayaks/canoes for your own paddling fun. NOTE: you MUST have everyone in your party before you will be seated; you are forewarned! NOTE: Go EARLY or be ready for a wait.
