They make so many unique pastries and strudels, and everything is amazing! The owners are super sweet and just the nicest people to talk with. Absolutely worth a visit!

Heard about this bakery and being German I knew it would have great baked goods. However, the way the counter and restaurant is run is clumsy and slow. Could have better flow from placing an order to being seated to serving the food. They need...More

There are so many times we travel and only want to eat where it is familiar. Do yourself a favor and stop by this wonderful German bakery while in Corpus. Just don't blame me if it becomes your must have after your first visit.

Based on others reviews, we tried this restaurant. It should be listed as a bakery rather than a restaurant. The bakery stuff may be good, but the food was terrible. In fact, my husband got serious stomachache after the dinner. I ordered the sausage sandwich...More

This place is on the island and always has great fresh pasteries. The strudles are to die for but they also has outstanding "cheese pie", think cheesecake. Fresh bread right out of the oven. They have German lunch specials like Sourbraughten with Spatcle that will...More

This bakery has quite an array of goods from their signature streudels to woodfired oven loaves of bread. The flake of the croissants is heavier than the French, but the goods are great. I love the apple turnovers made on Saturdays. The fruit pastries, danishes...More
