Who ever created this page at Trip Advisor did not know what they were doing. Their information is completely wrong when it pertains to the actual business. The real Hess Bakery is a great small business that has been around since the early 60's. It is family owned and the 4 pictures shown above has nothing to do with them. Hess bakery makes pretzels, rolls, breads, fresh everyday from scratch the old fashioned way. What is shown here has nothing to do with them as they do not bake cakes or any pastries and have never been associated with the business that is shown.

They don't have horrible customer service while serving anyone at tables because they do not have a restaurant or tables for any employees to wait on people. They are a German bakery where you get fresh baked breads, rolls, pretzels everyday along with having a deli with a huge selection of traditional German meats and cheeses. It is also a German store where they import all types of German goods from Jams, Beers, coffee, laundry detergent, chocolates, German egg noodles and more. They also have the largest selection of the real German Haribo Gummi Bears, not the garbage from the grocery stores or corner stores that sells you the junk made in Turkey with dyes, artificial flavors and colors.

These are the things that Hess Bakery carry and bake every day. Not the 4 photos of cakes, pastries and dining tables that are shown which is a complete separate business from them. Trip Advisor dropped the ball when creating this page about Hess Bakery and Deli, because there would be pictures of Hess Bakery had they done it right.

Lot of German spoke, but if you don't speak the language, you can get a great open sandwich with deli meats and cheese and soup that always tastes great. The baked goods are soon good and with German Baking there is not so much sugar used, so it is better for you. This is our comfort food.

Although the Deli is great especially the BIG pretzels Kaiser rolls and cold cuts the bakery has great cheese cake and other bakery items. The cheese cake has limited if not without sugar, it tastes like an original cheese cake.
On the weekends get to the deli early if you want the pretzels or pretzel rolls they do sell out.

The incredible desserts and beautiful cakes are the reason for stopping in here. An excellent variety of cakes - you can tell they care about quality. The turnovers are flaky and generously filled. I bought two to go and ate one on the way to my car! Parking is limited but worth circling to find a spot. A real gem of a bakery.
