We had the opportunity to go into this beautiful bakery. Only thing lacking was a friendly staff it was the end of their work day so I️ guess this was the reason. Delicious apple strudel and Pretzel roll.

Went here for dessert after Old Heidelberg. Was a zoo. Employees in the bakery were totally clueless and just barely able to take an order for two slices of the same cheesecake to go. Children running wild everywhere and positively NO organization at any level....More

Really??? Considering how professional and well trained my staff is, I think that you may be exaggerating just a little. Thanks for the complement on the Cheesecake!
