I always visit this for a sweet treat. The butter cake is phenom but I can only eat 2-3 bites as it is very sweet. This year I also tried the pumpkin butter cake which had a nice fall flavor but again, very sweet.

Great bakery; everything I've tried is great, but one thing that stands out is the German Butter Cake. It's not what you might think! I assumed it was like pound cake... no! You just have to try one!
