Their bakery rivals the very best of my German konditeri experiences in Germany; the first authentic such bakery that I've experienced this side of "the Pond". Superlative. Didn't eat at the restaurant but that looks great as well.

Lunch took 2 hours and it was two hours too long. Seafood chowder was served without utensils and any amount of actual seafood. Broth was tasty and pretzel was nice, but $17 is ridiculous. Staff yelled at each other and were a disorganized mess. It...More

Very good food and the owners and staff are very engaging. Enjoyed traditional favorites: sauerkraut, potato salad, pork schnitzel and, of course, warm apple strudel with ice cream. The German beer was tasty, too. We were not hurried as we lingered to enjoy our meal...More

As this is a German cafe we thought it would be good. The service was appalling. We felt so sorry for the waitress as she really couldn't cope with working in the shop and serving the guests. Not a great menu and the Pretzels that...More

We visited this bakery two years ago when visiting N.S. from Florida. Well, here we were again two years later to relive the memories of the baked goodies. I had a rhubarb turnover - light, fresh, so great. My husband had a strawberry-cheese danish -...More

On another occasion, we would definitely stop in to check out the food. We loaded up on baked goods from the bakery and we were very happy with our purchases. While not inexpensive, the quality is undeniable.
