Breakfast here is so-so, but the homemade pastries and breads are well worth the trip. My husband and I are stopping by again today to take a few boxes of pastries home to share with our families! Apple fritters are amazing. Yum!

I tried my daughter's waffle & found it to be good. The whipped cream was better. The rolls and the corn beef hash were obviously homemade & wonderful. My husband's potatoes were excellent. He really liked the French toast. Coffee was good, too, but a little pricey for the amount. The service was prompt & friendly. The restaurant had cute decor & appeared clean. Overall, it was a little on the expensive side ($50 for 3), but worth the money. I hope to go back & try their pastries, which looked wonderful!

bought some apple fritters for breakfast next day....a few seconds in the micro wave and they were very tasty. Haven't tried anything else there but they have been in business for years and have a large selection of pastries and German meats.

If you ever find yourself in or around Helen, you absolutely MUST stop here. They have a bakery where pastries and bread are made fresh daily. They also have a deli where you can buy German meats and cheeses. They have fresh made pretzel rolls which are my family's favorite! No trip is complete withouth trying something sweet. Our latest was a Bavarian chocolate, creme filled doughnut. The chocolate was rich and the creme was delicious! It probably contained a day's worth of calories, but with a taste like that, it was worth every one!

We stopped in between breakfast and lunch so we decided to get a couple of pastries from the bakery and sit outside. The blueberry muffin tasted like it came from a supermarket. The pretzel was terrible and a bad first impression of the German pretzels in town. The apple strudel was just ok as well. I wouldn't go there again and regret wasting a meal there.
