The German Pastry and Coffee Shop in Lakewood is the perfect place for coffee and something sweet.

Located in the same building as well known Hess’s German Bakery, the German Pastry and Coffee Shop, run by Dominique and Sandra Lakaque since 1963, is the perfect place to satisfy your sweet tooth. The shop also sells great sandwiches and salads, but I was there for dessert. Bright and cheerful, with plenty of tables for even the largest group, the shop has two big displays. The first has cakes…beautiful delicate amazing cakes. No pies here, this is indulgence on a plate The second is full of Danish-type pastries. Less sweet, but perfect with the coffee I ordered.

We stood in front of the counters and tried to decide on one thing and then we quit trying. We ordered cheese cake ( rich and dense), fruit topped cake (a light cake with fruit and jam on top), marzipan cake (soft green fondant over layers of almond flavored cake and butter cream) chocolate mountain cake ( chocolate and cherry layers with cherries between the layers) and grenades ( a cake cone filled with chocolate butter cream and dipped in dark chocolate that look like chocolate Christmas Trees). We also ordered plain coffee cake (dense cake with crumb topping, not too sweet but buttery) peach danish ( flaky pastry with sweet filling) and almond layers ( flakey layers of almond covered pastry filled with sweetened whipped cream).

Nothing cost over $2.00 and the entire bill with coffee came to just over $18.00.

Katy, running the family-owned establishment for the morning assured us that everything was baked on site, as she brought plates, forks and coffee. Everything was delicious  and we loved it all. We took most of the rich desserts home but that just made the fun last longer.

Plenty of parking, service dogs welcome, accessible bathroom.
