Breakfast food was ok. No trash cans, bathrooms or bussing of tables. Friendly service. The ham and cheese brezzel was the best.

They have a nice assortment of tasty pastries. I like to get a variety and try them all. The cream cheese ones are awesome. Everything is very fresh. They are great for breakfast or dessert.

While living in Germany I've visited quite a few German bakeries. This one has a first rate German baker. I tasted a lot of the items on the menu and have not had anything I didn't like yet. The fresh bread is the best! I can't even think of anything bad to say except when they have a special, come... More

WOW. My husband is an addict for good sweets and authentic food and this place was such a hidden treasure. When you are tired of fish on the island, try this place for great sandwiches, awesome baked goods, and authentic german dishes.

The schnitzel was more like a breaded pork chop. It should be thinner and tenderized. It tasted ok just too much like a thick pork chop. The hot german potato salad was very good. I'm sure I would return the next trip to north padre island.

Excellent place to eat! I had the pizza strudel and the spaetzle with gravy. For dessert I had tiramisu. All was very good. My friend had the chicken strudel and warm German potato salad. For dessert she had The Rock. Cute little place with plenty of seats. Excellent service. The prices are average We both walked away stuffed! Excellent choices... More

Still serving authentic German food. So good, we ate breakfast here twice in 2 days! It is a bakery and cafe all in one. They sell several different types of loaves of bread, strudels, and other German pastries. Breakfast selections include a unique French toast, eggs and German sausage, and an egg-scramble-quiche-like dish. Dining is inside or on their patio... More

I don't recommend the bean, sausage and everything but the kitchen sink breakfast pastry, but the peach breakfast pastry was divine. One serving would feed two or three people.
