Bread and pastries were very good. Lots of items were left even later in the day. Nice change from fast food.

This is a bakery and restaurant. More bakery than restaurant. Go early for breakfast because despite the sign that says breakfast all day, they do stop serving breakfast at 11. Kolache and strudels are a must. Come in for a different culinary selection. Worth experiencing.

This is an unassuming but authentic German eatery. The staff are super Texas friendly. My son devoured his pastry with gusto. The bread is fresh and the flavors fantastic. Best coffee on the island, too.

Every kind of strudel you could want and all are the best strudel in the US. No exaggeration! My favorite is the lemon cream cheese, but the pumpkin strudel (Thanksgiving to Christmas only) is sublime.
