The only European about this bakery is few types of bread they do! Close by taste but different.
I am European and I know what I am talking about.
All cakes , torts are American. Nothing close to European by taste and look.
Sugar, sugar and sugar:)))
Not so great anymore. I heard this was because they changed ownership again! I didn't like what I got at all.
Excellent – Aside from the baked goods, which are excellent, they also make great sandwiches! The Marley sandwich is my favorite.
New Owners - Best Bakery I have seen in years! – I am from the North East, and grew up with wonderful baked goods. we do not have as many bakeries around like I was used to.
The Little European Bakery is amazing. New owners Johnny and Ellie are wonderful people who produce an excellent product. I ate way to many cookies, and could eat an entire loaf of their bread in one sitting.
These folks are patient and spend as much time needed with their customers describing their products and sampling all of the treats.
I almost felt like being back in New York, most of the customers were actually European! What a Delight!
If you have not been in a while, come check it out. Johnny and Ellie have just taken over, and have very quickly turned this place around, even learning from the original owners of the bakery, with astounding results.
I love it and I will be back!
Beautiful and Delicious Wedding Cakes! – I had my wedding cake made by this bakery Dec of 2008 and was extremely satisfied! I originally asked for fondant and the baker told me that he would be happy to do so, but was pretty straight forward and forewarned me that most people don't eat the fondant and its more expensive. I went with their suggestion and it turned out to be an amazing cake! Thanks to this bakery's suggestion, the cake was a hit and I had compliments all around on the cake. I would highly recommend them!
Good German Bread – I can highly recommend the German baked goods like the breads and bretzels. I miss my bretzels and I drive from Buford to get them there.
Regarding the other remarks about the cakes: I haven't tried their cakes yet, but German cakes tend to be less sweet and moist than the American cakes are. I love to bake but when I bake for American guests I always add sugar to my german recipe or I use American cake recipes. I remember my American cousin trying my German apple cake: she ate only two bites of it - just not sweet enough for her.
old cake covered up with a lot of frosting – i recently ordered the white chocolate cake from this bakery because it looked like the best one - even though i have never been to this bakery i decided to give it a chance b/c its prices were reasonable. unfortunately, even though the cake looked delicious, i soon realized after tasting the cake, that the cake itself tasted very dry and old. the store had covered it up by drenching the cake in the white frosting and hoping to cover up the taste of the old cake. thankfully my guests did not realize this, but since i tend to get bakery cakes for most occassions i picked up on this very quickly. the other goodies the bakery offered looked appetizing but i dont think i want to risk buying anything from here again. i will go somewhere like henri's or joli kobe even though their cakes are more expensive.
New Ownership This Year! Give them a try, the Quality is Perfect!
Don't recommend for birthday cakes – I'm from Chicago and am trying to find an equivalent to Chicago's Swedish Bakery here in ATL. Ordered a standard birthday cake (yellow cake, white frosting, strawberry filling) but was disappointed. The cake was not moist. The strawberry filling doesn't have any actual strawberries in it. Just some type of strawberry jelly or jam. The frosting does not seem that high quality; it gets hard pretty quickly.
It was my first visit to the store. It looks nice and other pastries and pre-made cakes look nice so I may visit again. But unfortunately, the birthday cake wasn't as expected.
I strongly urge you to talk to the new owners of the bakery and see if they can help! They are doing a great job and work hard to make sure everything is right!
Old-World bakery attracting sugar lovers with its cakes, tortes and picture-perfect pastries. – In Short
Boasting more than 150 years of combined experience, these bakers specialize in European-style creations. Small indulgences include iced sugar cookies, petit fours, scones and Danish. Elegant fruit tarts, white chocolate mousse cakes, amaretto tortes and Mousse de Framboises are wow-inducing additions to dinner parties. Elegant wedding cakes are almost too pretty to eat. Donuts are served at the crack of dawn, and Boar's Head meat sandwiches--plus German deli meats--are peddled at lunchtime.
Everything Here is INCREDIBLE!!!! – Great selection and much more reasonably priced than the lower quality/no service bakery down the street. This bakery is my guilty pleasure and I have tried more of their desserts than I would like to admit - the Chocolate Mousse Cake is my favorite. Stop by for lunch and have roast beef sliced in front of you and piled on the richest potato bread you've ever had! Imports and great gifts too (toile aprons, specialty cloth napkins, small kitchen decor items). Large, small, and individual serving sized cakes perfect for events or showers. Deserts look fancy, but the price is not. A fabulous must try in Sandy Springs.
