Every time I see this place, I have to stop and fill a bag with fresh bread and pastry. This really is an authentic German Bakery.

Great selection of wonderful pastries and savory items. Stopped in on a whim, but we'll make a special trip back here next time we are in Corpus.

We stopped by Saturday morning but it was too crowded so we came back Sunday for lunch. Glad we did, the food reminded me of what I ate when I lived in Germany for a year. I had the German hot dog (brautwurst, sauerkraut, cheese on a baguette) and I had to wrestle it away from my daughters they liked... More

Absolutely loved all the German baked goods and bread offered at this quaint little cafe. Reminds me of the bakery goods I often enjoyed during my 3 years in Germany. See for yourself...

My husband and I stopped here for coffee when we were driving north from Malaquite Beach to Port Aransas. Once we went inside, we were tempted by all the baked goods and ended up enjoying an apple pastry. The selection is extensive! And the owners/bakers are Texas transplants from Germany, so the food and the decor are wonderfully authentic. The... More

The restaurant is very quaint and friendly. You place your order when you get in and have to try and not buy too many pastries. They all look amazing. I ordered the french toast and brat, and it was great. I also enjoyed the free coffee refills.

When you walk in there is a cafe atmosphere ,just inviting . And reading the menu is hard because you want to order everything . I always ask my husband what are you getting to make sure I get something else so I can pick off his plate . And we always take a couple of goodies to go .

We were on vacation and usually eat breakfast out on Sunday mornings. We have high standards for Apple strudel Bc we have an excellent German restaurant in our hometown. We were not disappointed. My whole family of six found something to eat. The apple, chocolate and lemon strudels were wonderful. My husband, who does not care for sweets, found the... More

We love the strudel here. Sweet strudel or meat strudel-all are delicious! We live close and pick it up on the way off the island. The counter lady is friendly and starts our day off with a smile.

A fantastic solution to mundane hotel food. Serves a full breakfast with a large variety of pastries. Great for lunch as well either for dining in or taking out. I was very excited to have come across this place!
