while visiting Fredericksburg we wanted breakfast and the Old German Bakery & Rest. was recommended. The breakfast was great, but the bakery goods were literally worth the visit alone

Ate breakfast two mornings in a row, it's THAT good! Hubby had the pancakes, I had the eggs, hash browns, biscuits & sausage. Next morning we had the cinnamon rolls and nut rolls. O...M...G... The best!

Craving the gravy goodness of some fine jägerschnitzel? Well, believe it or not, you can enjoy this fine German dish in the heart of Texas. The next time I am traveling through Fredericksburg, I know where I am stopping for lunch.

Go early so you aren't waiting. Classic old school breakfast with lots of bakery treats. Menu is traditional with a few local additions. Service is good and prices right.

We had friends in town, they were requesting German food. This was THE place! Always busy when we drive by, staff is friendly and helpful.

All the pastries we took home were completely uncooked and slimy. Don’t go if you don’t want to get sick. It shouldn’t be called the “Best of German Food” if they don’t even know how to bake.

We have been previous visits and never experienced a wait. Today, we waited 45 min and had to share a table with strangers. The food was worth the wait and very reasonably priced. Our strangers became friends and we had a great breakfast experience

We were there for lunch, and some of our party ordered breakfast. I checked on their website and there is an abbreviated breakfast menu after 11:00 a.m.
