Deli with great sauerkraut in/near Brevard County?

I just moved here from out of state, and I'm in search of great sauerkraut. I was spoiled in my old city by a German deli that sold amazing 'kraut, as well as uncooked wursts and other delicious items. Does anyone know of anyplace to get really good sauerkraut--I'm not talking about the sour supermarket stuff--anywhere in or around Brevard County? I'd like to be able to take it home for cooking, but restaurant reccs are appreciated, as well. I can always ask if they'll sell me some 'kraut.

I appreciate any help you can provide!

  1. We've been here 3+ years & still haven't found a German deli of any sort.

    1. There's a German restaurant in Titusville witha deli but I don't know if they have kraut to go.

      If you need sausages, the closest place with great (instead of passible) wursts is Stanpol Polish Deli on 50 in East Orlando.

      If you want to eat German food in this part of Florida, you'll need to drive to Sanford and head to The Willow Tree. German owners, German Chef, German Beer and great food from the old country.

      1. Maybe Pumpernickes in Titusville on Hopkins

        1. Have you tried the Polish restaurant Salt & Sweet? It's in the Publix plaza, northwest corner of Lake Washington Road and Wickham Road in Melbourne. It's a bit upscale -- I see white tablecloths through the window -- and I haven't tried it but it seems like they'd be a good resource.

            I've eaten there. Food was very, very good and the family that runs the place is as nice as you'll find.

            Odd location, terrific food. Nice decor but not expensive.

              We've had two very enjoyable meals at this place. The menu features things like pierogis, kielbasa, paprika chicken, stuffed cabbage, potato pancakes, etc. It is a sit down restaurant with table cloths & good, attentive service. However, I don't remember any entree that was over $20, and there were a lot under $15. Most entrees are large enough to have enough leftover for the next day's lunch.

              While a lot dishes have some sort of cabbage in them, I don't remember any with kraut. It's been a few months since our last visit, so I may be wrong.
