Owners Hilde and Clause Friese moved to the U.S. from Munich and Hamburg to share their incredible recipes with their new friends and neighbors. The bakery boasts fresh, handmade breads, cakes, cookies, cheesecakes, and the famously flaky apple strudel, a pastry carefully filled with apples and cinnamon sugar. For lunch, you can try to wiggle your way through a giant pretzel ($5), served with house-made German mustard. For dinner, go with a classic German banquet of wiener schnitzel ($16), piles of scalloped pork lightly breaded and sautéed, served with German potato salad and seasonally fresh vegetables. If the menus' girths overwhet your appetite, just head to the bar for a liter of German craft beer. Then muster your confidence and use today's Groupon to challenge your friends or foes to find out who can eat 57 potato pancakes the fastest.
