Everybody in Smithers is worried. The family that has operated this great German style pastry shop is looking to sell. It's an institution where locals meet for really good pastries, sandwiches and conversation. Here's hoping it stays as good as it is. Be careful, the three layer brownies are addictive!

Nothing much to dislike. All goodies baked in their own kitchen and it's all good. They have good selection of pastries and as well offer up soup and sandwiches and coffees. Gets a little crowded at lunch. Frozen cinnamon buns to take on the road with you.

I never would've expected to find homemade bread and delicious treats on my way home from my travels. I did in Schimmels one of the cutest bakeries ever! Great service and specialty coffees that are a great change from the horrible chain coffees, not to name names:) that are everywhere as you travel, will be coming back for sure.

There are sometimes when a taste can transform you. This is the place to give it a try. The pastry was wonderfully German (or Dutch?) Rich creams, full bodied doughs, full of flavor treats. And the coffee was strong. Worth a stop if you are anywhere near Smithers.

I was having a major chocolate craving, and called around to discover they had a gluten-free chocolate zucchini bread. Although not quite as good as my mom's.. it was absolutely amazing. Chocolaty, but not overwhelmingly so... with a hint of zucchini goodness.. and icing sugar on top to boot.... I savored every bit.

This family-run bakery is very clean, decorative and bright.... and the treats in the case are unbelievably yummy!! I liked the Mocha Almond Wafers so much that I went back after i'd eaten my lovely sandwich, and bought the last 7 cookies they had!!! Great spot for a family to dine, or to write in your diary over a cup... More

It was a hot day in Smithers and we needed cold drinks and a place out of the sun so we went in. The decor is very cute and in keeping with the 'alpine' look of the town. Service is friendly and they had a good selection of pastries - they also serve sandwiches. Coffee (iced) was good.

Great little coffee shop! The cinnamon buns are incredible! Absolutely delicious. My friend has Celiac and loves that she can go in and grab a cheese cake cup for a creamy snack. Great service, cant wait to go back
