Out of business.....don't waste a trip. Sad 7th street doesn't have a decent bakery. The place was cramped and baked goods were not baked with butter but with lard.

Really well baked cakes, especially if you order in advance , with a decent selection of cookies, breads and Danish. Stock seems more abundant earlier in the morning, on weekend and during holiday season. They also have another big bakery nearby in Hempstead where stock is much larger, they serve breakfast and also have some classes for gingerbread houses at holiday time. Garden City location also has a small coffee shop in the back that serves breakfast and lunch.

I went here to try it out since it is in my neighborhood. It was at the end of the day and they were closing soon. I ordered a multi-colored cookie and a linzer torte. The multi colored sprinkle cookie was hard and definitely did not taste fresh. It also tasted like a cookie you would get in a chinese restaurant. The linzer torte was just ok.
I won't be back.

Went into Riesterer's for the first time during the holiday season. I bought a VERY cute snowman cake. (it was a regular shaped cake but the top of the cake looked like a snowmans face). While it looked adorable the flavor was just OK. I felt like I could have made a better tasting cake out of the box. I think the most upsetting part was that this "on the smaller side" cake was over $20!!! I wouldn't go back to Riesterer's!

A solid reliable family owned bakery on picturesque 7th St. cafe. Fresh baked goods with a wide assortment of pastries, breads, and cookies. Get there early for fresh loaves of bread, or order a special occasion cake. There is nothing this bakery cannot do.
