I first ate at Ol Heidelberg when it was at the old "The Mall" on the Parkway 40+ years ago. Never had a bad meal, schnitzel is the best you will find. Great service and great atmosphere. The hot bread is awesome!

Their desserts are on display when you first walk in the restaurant. When you want a dessert, you get up from the table, look, and choose.

I do not have a desert menu but, just imagine any delicious cake you may want and they have it, plus baklava.
