We had to wait twice as long for our server to find our table, then we did waiting for our table. However, the food was excellent. The surprise stand out for us was the Bavarian Pretzel Dumpling. Maybe we caught this place short staffed, but will visit again next time we are in Helen.

My husband had a custard filled donut and she says it was even better then the ones you get in New York. I has a chocolate croissant and hands down it was the best I had ever eaten.

This place has the most excellent coffee. Everything we have eaten there has been really really good. Staff is very friendly and help each other when it gets busy... So you aren't waiting forever for a coffee refill!!!

The menu has a great selection of breakfast and lunch-time foods. Service was attentive and friendly and prices were fair for Helen. Check out their dessert selection (esp. the bread pudding), which is conveniently located near the entrance!

I wish we had tried this place before our last day there. The selection of food was wonderful. The French toast was delicious. The selection of pastries and cakes were amazing. The waitresses and lady serving pastries were all extremely pleasant. We will visit this place again!!

Enjoyed our Sunday visit. We bought a selection of pastries for our family and we all shared. Everything was delicious. I was disappointed I wasn't able to get a Bavarian pretzel but I did try their pretzel roll. Very tasty! Worth stopping in for some sweet treats:)

We ate breakfast here both mornings we were in town. French Toast was amazing as well as the bakery goods from the front counter were delicious. Very small restaurant seating but we were there when they opened at 8 both days so we were able to sit right down.
