“Tasty, unusual flavors of cookies.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Tasty and uniques cookies in an old world way. Very small place with pleasant staff. PRICEY but the cookies made a unique gift for a person who appreciated the Old World flavors and style of cookies.

“Fantastic German Springerle cookies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012 via mobile

Each springele cookie is made by hand and is fantastic. A true artist in motion. A quaint historic tradition of baking ,don't miss this little shop while visiting Strasburg. Each special Springerle cookie is pesonally hand decorated on old world tradition . Coffee and tea are also available.. It is hard to eat only one..

“This place is a hidden GEM!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2011

Yes Yes Yes! This place is a hidden GEM!

I don't live in the Lancaster area, but I come here for business 2-3 times per year. Even though my meetings are way across town I never miss Springerle House when I come in!

They specialize in Springerle Cookies, which are a German pressed cookie. Originally they tasted like anise (black licorice) but now they have lots of flavors for people who don't like that one.

The cookies are good, but what I really like is there homegrown Caresse bruschetta. MMM. They serve these amazing organic homegrown tomatoes and they add mozzarella, garlic and basil (traditional Caresse) on top of this delicious french bread with olive oil. Delish!

THE GOOD:
*Breakfast and Lunch with super-fresh, organic and free-range ingredients
*Prices are very reasonable
*Staff is SUPER NICE and very knowledgeable
*Loose leaf teas
*Open super-early for those of us who need to get to work, but still want a cup of coffee and a bfast sammy first.
*Lots of street parking

THE BAD:
*Seating is pretty limited
*Website doesn't have their menu
*Only open for Breakfast-Lunch (No food orders after 3 or 4?)

Definitely a must-try if you're in the Lancaster area!
