“Wonderful surprise!”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

The German Bakery Sachsen Cafe & Restaurant is a family owned & operated cafe in downtown Annapolis Royal. It is located right across the street from Fort Anne.

We stopped there for lunch on our way to Port Royal.

When you walk in the door you are enveloped by the smell of fresh-baked German bread, cakes, and desserts. It smelled heavenly!

We were seated by the bubbly young waitress (who we later learned is the daughter of the family). She told us about the specials. We both had homemade soup and pretzels. Stacey had a vegetable soup and I had the last bowl of soup with dumplings in it (Heidi's Goulasch Soup maybe?). Both were delicious! Best soup I've had in a restaurant. But the star of the meal was definitely the pretzel! We got the last 2 of the day. Lucky us! They melted in your mouth!

Tagessuppe
"Soup of the Day"
Served with bottled water and a butter pretzel
$ 11.95

The restaurant is quite homey. The staff are all friendly. We had a wonderful chat with our waitress - the owners' daughter - about what it was like to immigrate from Germany and how much she likes Annapolis Royal and Nova Scotia. We also had a brief chat with Heidi. We weren't planning on it, but she convinced us that we couldn't leave without taking macaroons with us! And we were very glad we did!

“Very tasty, friendly service”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

We stopped for lunch after a morning at Port Royal. I quite enjoyed the schnitzel sandwich and my husband had the smoked salmon. Delicious bread and tasty ingredients. Kids enjoyed a buttered pretzel and a kaiser with locally made jam. What's not to like?! We also bought some cookies and pastries for the drive and they were also delish.

“Awesome hot chocolate and pastries!”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Didn't expect to find a German bakery in the middle of historic town in Nova Scotia. Stopped here for lunch and enjoyed the bratwurst, but the hot chocolate with whipped cream was my favorite!
