German sandwiches and pastries but a little expensive for what we got. Everything was good but would have enjoyed it more if the prices were a little more reasonable.

Fantastic pastries. The pork schnitzel is absolutely marvelous. Great friendly service. Welcoming international ambience. And if what you are looking forward to is a loaf of bread to take home you can't beat the German Bakery.

Outstanding German Bakery. The dark breads are as good as any in Germany. The pretzels are better than any we’ve had in our travels in Germany! Unlike anything you can find in the US. Great service and personable owners.

We stopped in for lunch, the food was fabulous! The owners were very friendly. They served authentic German cuisine, and the pastries were some of the best I’ve had especially the Cherry Strudel!
