This bakery and restaurant went well beyond our expectations. They have a very impressive array of pastries, and their sandwiches are delicious. Be aware, these sandwiches are also very large. We ordered a poor boy for two and it would easily feed four. Very clean,...More

Made-to-order sandwiches. One gets to pick what their sandwiches are made of. Pick your bread, meat, cheese, vegetables, and condiments. The freshly made breads, of which there are about 10 varieties, are wonderful. The sandwiches are huge and are piled high with the customers' choices....More

Nice place and nice bakery products. Not all things are really the same in Germany, but at least the things I bought tasted good. Some more kinds of wheat or rye- bread would be great.

No, it is definitely not a bar. They are more like a family restaurant, with meals, wonderful pastries and German beer.
