Nothing annoys me more than faux foreign language flexing which results in a fail.
Das Kaffeehaus. One word, no sudden capital in the middle of it and absolutely certainly no Umlaut on the U of Haus. What's that about?
Sorry to rant - you didn't create the sign, I know that ;) Just had to get it off my chest

To the owners defense, (according to what I can find about the establishment) they love the German culture when they visited there and wanted to have something here in the USA.

I think they didn’t want to get too authentic as I doubt that non German speakers in the USA would understand or look up das Speisekarte and instead opt for das Menu. Although, having not been to Germany it could be that Menu is a common word now.

My issue, me being of German ancestry myself, is that I get it if you want to honor the culture, but the best way you can do so is to try your best to be as accurate as possible.

I have a few friends I talk with from Germany and as direct as Germanic peoples can be, they have never once gotten mad at me for making an honest mistake when I try and use the language.

True story, went to a local market here in Ohio last year and there was a man from Germany there selling German spices and condiments. He did it because there was not really anything equivalent here.

I was nervous and my German is little better than a toddler, but I was able to ask how much do the 2 items cost in German. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a German so surprised and showing absolute delight in the fact that I tried.

With all that being said, one would hope that the proprietor or a business would do their best to get it accurate.

My wife tells me the coffee is good , regardless- I wouldn’t know as I never acquired a taste for the bitter bean! 😂
