Being of European heritage, I have been shopping/eating at JBs since they opened. The food is very typical of Europe and there is no place else offering the wonderful strudles, breads, and sandwiches like these! The prices are reasonable considering the quality and size of the servings. On my last visit I had a "Texas Sandwich" which was plenty for... More

Great sweets and atmosphere. This is at a great location so if we stayed closer we would have ate a meal here too. The inside is nice and clean and they have lots of room for a large crowd and an outdoor patio area too. We tried the studdles

I love all of the Home Made breads and pastries, and I am sure all of you will, too. The serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, but I have actually never had anything other than coffee and pastries.

We found this place while heading to the North Padre Island beach and decided to give it a try on the way back. The first thing we loved was the wide variety of German/European pastries, but watch out, the pastries are quite large and you will be filled in not time. We also tried the lunch Sandwiches and were very... More

Spent 5 days in CC for family get-together. Had breakfast there our last day and regretted we hadn't tried it sooner. Delicious pastries - yes. But also very tasty breakfast. Good service. Friendly staff. Must go if you're there.

Service was slow and when I noticed a fly land on the pastry I wanted that was it for me! I informed the server and she promptly removed the pastry. :-) I took my order to go and would recommend the waffle and fruit cup. It was not special but it was good.

Not a noticeable place - drove by it several times. Then we found a flyer on the place and stop to have lunch. Hands down BEST FOOD EVER!!! Very friendly staff - and helpful also. They handed out samples and I do not like apple fritters - but I LOVED the ones they made!!! Will go back again and again!!!

Oh where to begin - so many pastries, so little time! We had both a lunch and breakfast here during our week on the island. In addition to the pastries, they also make wonderful breads for their sandwiches and French toast. They also have a shop in Corpus Christi now, but we didn't try it.

We ate breakfast at this restaurant after watching the early-morning sea turtlle hatching release at Padre Island National Seashore. The pastries here are excellent, large and filling. The omelets were OK but very reasonably priced. This is a great place to get your coffee and pastry fix. Order at the counter - anything that has to be cooked will be... More
