We came here for the brats, but after seeing the deserts I decided to try the Black Forest. Oh my goodness.... in one word, phenomenal!!!! I at my Desert before the lunch meal and left extremely satisfied. This place took me back to Schweinfurt downtown bakeries.

Terrific bakery , coffee and an overwhelming array of freshly made treats and breads. We sat on the deck which is adjacent a canal. Their breads are made in a wood fired stove on the premises -it was interesting to watch. They serve breakfasts and sandwiches as well.

Daughter and I both had the apple strudel, wife had the pretzel. Servings, at least for us were plentiful. I had the strudel heated up, which they were glad to do. The crust was really flaky, strudels included apples and raisins. They also had a good variety of other pastries, as well as meals. Atmosphere was nice and quiet. What... More

Arrived at 10 AM on a Wednesday and there was a line. Not because they were busy but because the service was extremely slow. Stood in line to order the food but single lady had responsibility for taking orders, plating the pastries and working the dash register. Took forever. Then we made the mistake of ordering French Toast in addition... More

Don't miss the breakfast there, and be ready to take home a loaf or two of their delicious bread. It was a bit of a line, but not too bad. Outstanding quality!

Visiting the island and stopped for breakfast. The huge selection of amazing looking goodies was hard to pick from. After choosing an apple and chocolate streusel, which were amazing, we ended up stopping back later for a slice of cake...wonderful food!!

A delicious Bakery in the old European style format. Pastries and baked breads to die for. Really good coffee . The staff is great. We find ourselves eating breakfast here two or three times a week.

It's the only place south of San Antonio to find German pastry but it doesn't disappoint. The owner bakes everything fresh every day and the pastry is huge.

We came in several times during our month long stay to pick up a variety of German desserts - strudels, pies, cookies and more. The offer varies from day to day. There was plenty of parking every time we came in. There did not appear to be many customers dining in any time we came by. We were immediately greeted... More
