An "old-fashioned" style German Bakery/coffee shop with breads, pastries and cookies prepared daily. You can small the aroma of fresh baking as you walk in! We recommend all their baking, but their "Chocolate Slider" cookies are simply irresistible!

We stop here on our annual trip to the north island. Never again. The soup we had for lunch was barely tepid and when we told them that they told us to warm it up in the microwave. No apology at all. Once warmed it...More
