Had the Schnitzel Sandwich and Potato salad. The Schnitzel crisp outside, tender and juicy on a freshly made roll. Master German pastry chef on site making outstanding pastries. A must stop in to place.

Stopped by for pastry and coffee. One worker clearly overworked was running around trying to do everything. When she saw us she rolled her eyes. One cookie was 3.75. Ouch. Do not recommend..

Owner? moaned consistently about using credit card, expensive for what we had and coffee was awful. A thoroughly non-Nova Scotian experience.
