Many people with a German background came here in the 19th century and funnily enough I found a large map in the museum that showed that half of my hometown...more

They had lots of yummmy looking tarts, squares, cookies, pies and cakes, as well as a deli where they made sandwiches, soup, and salads. (Yes, I know, should've had one of them but wasn't THAT hungry.) Lemon Square - sort of a cream...more
