The bakery was celebrating Ocktoberfest. After visiting Germany last year in June, this celebration made me feel like, for a moment, I was back there. The pastries are amazing. Highly recommend the chocolate cheesecake pastry and the spinach quiche. Yum!!!

One of our favorite stops every winter. Some of my favorites: breakfast pie, pumpkin coins, black cherry coffee cake. So glad they survived Harvey.
