I lived in Germany for 10 years. This is the real deal--very authentic and tasty. The lines tell the story--always crowded. Everything they do is absolutely first rate!

Ate breakfast twice on our trip. Had an omelette and it was average. But the breads and baked goods were awesome. Even stopped on our way home to pick up some bread to take with us. Pumpkin seed bread was great along with the fruit pastries. Not overly sweet and full of fruit. A must when you are on North... More

Loved our German lunch in this gem of a spot. The grilled cheese sandwich and the Reuben sandwich were so yummy! The homemade bread for both was delicious!!! The bratwurst plate is great too; we liked both the German potato salad and the roasted red potatoes. And of course, the baked goods are awesome. Eat a treat and take some... More

I was overwhelmed!! We sat in for lunch of beautiful quiche and cakes. Because we couldn't choose between the cakes we had to have a takeaway too. Plenty of parking and the biggest treat was seeing hummingbirds in the car park. Great.

Stopped in here based on reviews. We are staying just a few blocks away. The baker is a master German baker and other bakers come to train with him. There is such an extensive amount of pastries available for such a small place.We stopped in about 4PM in the afternoon to check out the bakery thinking they only served breakfast.... More

We recently visited JB's for lunch while on a trip to Padre Island. They have authentic German food at great prices! We loved the German hamburger, the German potato salad, and the bratwursts. All were very authentic and served very quickly. For dessert they have MANY great German sweets. We would highly recommend this place the next time you visit... More
