From Germany? Live in Canada? Miss your mama's pastries? Better than anything you'll find at Tim Hortons but be prepared to pay the price. That was a shocker!

My husband and I decided to treat ourselves with a 'sweet' from the bakery. We waited for about 10 minutes for service. Everything looks delicious but nothing is priced. We made delicious but expensive choices. It is not a very 'customer friendly' environment.

Always enjoy a coffee and the delicious onsite made desserts. One of my favourite bakeries for taking a special dessert to enjoy at home with a coffee.

Our service here was terrible, the desserts weren't nearly as good as they looked, and I felt it was quite expensive for what we got.

Just stopped there on a whim, and what a pleasant surprise. They warmed the danish and it was amazing. Excellent!

The food was not as good as we expected and it was definitely overpriced! You would think that a bakery could serve a roll or piece of bread with an entree that costs about $20. I did not care for their strudel. The crust was too thick and heavy.

OMG pastries and cookies, Danish, Blueberry cheesecake pastry, and on the sweet list goes. Coffee and meals are available as well. We only tried the baked goods. Pastry a tiny bit heavy but fillings to die for. Ginger cookies soft, chewy yumminess.

Stopped here to get sandwiches on the way to Keji National Park. Definitely recommend the chicken sandwich with yogurt sauce- delicious and so filling! Resisted the pastries this time...but probably should have had a ginger cookie. Looked delicious.

Fantastic pastries. Run by an expat with a multi-generation baking family. Authentic strudel that was simply divine. Right across the street from the Fort Anne National Park.
