We stopped here for breakfast and as soon as we walked in it smelled like heaven. All the fresh pastries were heaven to your eyes. We had french toast, bratwurst, cinnamon roll, omelet. All very good but I think we decided the brats were hands down the best ever!! Very friendly staff and just a great little place to be.

Stopped here today after taking the bridge back frim CC. All I can say is WOW. Si much to choose from, it's hard making up your mind, like a kid in a candy store. I tried a Brisbett, a cream filled open faced donut and my wife had a raspberry w cream cheese strudel, both excellent. My wife said coffee... More

Great lunch and dinner specials but the pastries, breads and desserts are also the reason not to miss this great local bakery. The biggest obstacle is trying to make a decision on what's going home with you. You'll want it all. Potato bread, German cheese pie and any of the cookies are musts.

We will be back...it is worth the forty five minute detour. Having grown up in Bavaria, I'll tell you this is the real deal! We can even bring our dog next time and sit on the patio. Very friendly.

Bakery items were 5 star! Nice selection of bakery items, but only Quiche and egg casserole for non-bread items! We live the cookies, German pastries and cinnamon rolls! Very popular among locals! Sandwiches for lunch looked good,but we came by for sweets!

Food was good and reasonable. The aroma of the bread cooking while we ate was just wonderful. Location of the restaurant makes it easy to get to.

I lived in Germany for 10 years. This is the real deal--very authentic and tasty. The lines tell the story--always crowded. Everything they do is absolutely first rate!

Ate breakfast twice on our trip. Had an omelette and it was average. But the breads and baked goods were awesome. Even stopped on our way home to pick up some bread to take with us. Pumpkin seed bread was great along with the fruit pastries. Not overly sweet and full of fruit. A must when you are on North... More
