Fantastic pastries. The pork schnitzel is absolutely marvelous. Great friendly service. Welcoming international ambience. And if what you are looking forward to is a loaf of bread to take home you can't beat the German Bakery.

We stopped in for lunch, the food was fabulous! The owners were very friendly. They served authentic German cuisine, and the pastries were some of the best I’ve had especially the Cherry Strudel!
