we have been here several times for breakfast. They have fabulous pastries. We also buy ice here which is only$1 a bag, cheapest on the island. My main complaints are that it lacks ambience, isn't very clean, and there aren't many healthy diabetic friendly choices. Come here if you want to splurge

Some of the best fresh baked breads and pastries I've had in a ling time. We went there with friends, bought breads to go with wine and cheese, great selection. We went back next day for breakfast - nothing fancy, food good, but not memorable. We did go back a third day and get a bunch of pastries for breakfast... More

We stopped here for breakfast and to buy from the bakery for a snack later in the day. We had a wonderful breakfast and the staff were great! We watched as they put a load of fresh bread dough in the ovens that came from Germany! Wow can they ever bake a lot of bread at a time! That was... More

Good coffee and the patisseries were delish. Took some home to my... More

First, a bakery -- and the goods are VERY good. Some heavy and not-too-sweet sweets, what one would expect of German baked goods. The Bee Sting pastry is to die for. Lunch and brunch items available at reasonable cost.

My wife and I saw the sign for this place and decided to give it a try. The breads and deserts were identical to those we tried in Germany.

Yes, we love the pastries and cakes, simply heaven but totally overprized. The same goes for the rolls or what we call in Germany "Broetchen", but $1 a piece, get real. Now here is where it gets iffy at best, my husband and I went for Tuesday dinner, he ordered the Jaegerschnitzel with Spaetzle. What he got has NO resemblance... More
