Foursquare Tips

  • great for breakfast
  • Claudia Kemmet-Cooper named her pastry shop after the guglhupf, a traditional German cake with almonds, rum-soaked golden raisins and powdered sugar.
  • The pancakes are so amazing and fluffy for one brief moment I thought I was eating on a cloud on my way to breakfast heaven.
  • Triangle's best bakery. Get the iced Vietnamese and the fruit tart. Divine.
  • If it's crowded, don't claim a table before ordering your food. This really screws up the seating situation. Just try to relax, and by the time your food is ready, somebody else will be finishing up.
  • Eat a damn cream puff.
  • Like 3 different places in 1 - visit the bakery, go for lunch/brunch and then also for dinner.
  • Get a Berliner Weisse - amazing sour German beer with fruit syrup! Delicious!
  • Brunch: have someone in your party score a table while someone else waits in line to order. They will ask you where you're sitting.
  • Make sure to try their poached eggs for brunch!! Tasty! And the place is really charming; their pastries are delicious too.
  • try any of their breakfast pastries. My favorite is the spinach croissant but you really can't go wrong.
  • Take a date to dinner here. The food is local and fabulous. The atmosphere and lighting is intimate so it's a great date place. There is outdoor seating!
  • The appetizer meat plate was delicious and the german beer selection was very good.
  • Very nice cafe/restaurant. I was there for coffee and a pastry while using WiFi to work. Great atmosphere. However, I did witness a customer serve her dog water from a restaurant glass. Smh
  • The french dip was fantastic!!!
  • Get your buns to this bakery for your hot cross buns around Easter!
  • Dine on Alsatian Potato-Leek Torte from executive chef David Alworth. Follow the link to see Greg Cox's full review.
  • Saturday mornings can be quite crowded. Go during the week if u can.
  • Pre-order & pre-pay a couple of days before Christmas Eve. You'll avoid a long line!
  • The turkey, brie, and apple chutney sandwich will change your life.
