Fun place to grab a breakfast or some great baked goods. Not fancy but lots of friendly winter visitors.

The pastries are really tasty, and the coffee is pretty good. I actually like the ambiance of JB's and it reminds me a little bit of Germany. I've had several things off their menu (I live just down the road). Is actually skip most if the breakfast items except for the baked goods. The French toast is good but I... More

We lived in Germany for about 5 years and enjoyed the traditional German bakeries. So when we saw this place we had to give it a try. We were very impressed. All of the German certificated for baking different types of bread and pastry were hanging on the wall and the Poppy strudel and cinnamon twist were excellent. Any German... More

The homemade bread here is just delicious and there are many types to try. We found the prices to be a little more expensive than what we are used to in the northern United States. There are several German entrees you can order and also mouthwatering desserts.

The restaurant is really an afterthought but the bakery is fantastic. You must remember German pastries are beautiful but not super sweet. They are great with coffee and absolutely identical to some I have had in Frankfurt and in Hamburg as well as Berlin. Try it its a fun stop and you will talk about it. Go to the one... More

Visit on or way out of town and could not resist picking up a couple of loaves...so glad we did! The country loaves are crispy, chewy, and fresh. The pastries are traditional German and RICH. Overall, I would highly recommend.

My favorite things here are the strudels. They are super filling, but it's hard to decide on a flavor, so it's most fun to get several and split them among a group. The beesting cake is great, fluffy and creamy, the breads are good, and so are the cookies. The owners and employees have been extremely nice whenever I go,... More
