Lacking in ambience, Wagner's puts its resources into its products. I have a personal weak spot for the chocolate eclair, carrot cake, and the black forest cake, of which a single slice is simply too big for one person to tackle.

We had lunch there on a Sunday several weeks ago after enjoying shopping at a chilly Farmer's Market. We had sandwiches plus a side. Three of us had reubens with the German potato salad. Our 4th member had a deli sandwich with a corn chowder. All felt the food was good. Food is ordered at a counter. Seating is on... More

This is an outstanding German bakery. Everything is fresh and tastes great. My only complaint is in the title of this review. I gain 5 pounds just walking in the front door. We've been there many times over the years. The wedding cake for our daughter's wedding was made by them. That was great.

Their baked goods look wonderful but are very pricy. The german cheese cake tastes like a block of Philadelphia which was especially disappointing as Germans are known for their superp cheese cakes and I was relly really looking forward to that delight. The staff is very friendly. The seating area leaves much to be desired for, looks out dated, almost... More

I always buy my husband a German Chocolare cake at Wagner's for his birthday. He's a connoisseur and thinks Wagner's is the best. We also love their cinnamon bread. The coconut cream pie we bought was only so-so.

Delicious soup and dessert. Location is an easy walk from down town and is very close to the capital campus. Parking can be challenging.
