I have enjoyed this place in the past, but today was a disaster. I ordered a hamburger without carmelized onions, and after waiting almost 30 minutes, out came the hamburger, smothered in onions. I returned it to the waiter and left, because I did not have time to wait for them to redo it. Now I am starving but had... More

We go to Rockenwagner at least once a week for their bread, rolls and buns. They are the best. The service is super friendly and fast. Rockenwager has a little restaurant inside. They have nice breakfast offerings and really good sandwiches. It is a local place and you will love it. I love the people that work there. My husband... More

Everybody was friendly but the service was spotty and food average. We ordered eggs and daughter's scrambled eggs needed to be redone as they were overdone; I ordered over easy eggs and they were harder than I would want, The potatoes are not so great. The toast was barely toasted and almost cold. My daughter asked for to go foods... More

I have visited this bakery/ restaurant three times in the last year for lunch takeout. I buy sandwiches and a drink. Each visit has been past noon, and usually past one p.m. The pastries, if there were any, were sparse. The sandwiches have been fair to bad. During my last visit in early September, I ordered a breakfast type sandwich... More

I love the food here, but the service just gets worse and worse every time we go. I was excited as it was a great European-style breakfast spot with lots of pastries and breads, but that can't make up for bad service. I always went for the breakfast sampler, but that's since be removed from the menu, so there's even... More

I have been to this Rockenwagner twice and his other outlet a couple of times. The pastries are top notch, especially the chocolate croissant. The multigrain breads are dense and chewy with wonderful flavor, while the French bread is authentic. My only complaint is the good quality has a price, but it's worth it.

Nice breakfast menu with some German classics included. Great bakery with lots of choices. Great teas and coffee and curbside seating if you like.

If you find yourself in need of a break and fed up with Starbucks this is the perfect place to drop into. Rockenwagner Bakery is a Fab find and great for the Singleton that just wants to have a little peace and a great snack or baked good with coffee. There is Free Wifi and the service is always great.

This unpretentious little place is happy, welcoming and delicious all at once. We had the egg and avocado special breakfast sandwich and it truly was "the best one we'd ever eaten"!
