Esther's isn't just a bakery. It actually serves hot foods with a sit-down setting. Prices are very reasonable. There aren't a lot of parking spots in the front, but you will find more spots in the back.

so I've been to Esther's for breakfast, now I must bring son back for lunch. Equally excellent, from the schnitzel to Beef Rouladen..and of course, no meal at Esther's would be complete without desserts! I just love everything, and I meant EVERYTHING here! Parking can be challenging, as there's not a lot of space in the front...

Not a lot of ambiance here, but the food was very good, especially the potato salad. The pastries were superb! That is definitely her specialty. I had the pork schnitzel, which was good. I have had better, I have had worse. Many native Germans were present, so that says something for the food.

I have lived in Germany (Deutchland) for 3 years and the food that is served here is extremely well made. I had the chicken schnitzel and it was great. If you love German food, this is the place to get good food and great German bier!

Great authentic German Food served quickly and with a smile. Bier Garden in back makes it even better. You know it's the real deal when the patrons are German.
