Max & Moritz Bakery & Restaurant in Fayetteville?

Tomorrow I make the long march to Beaufort from Matthews (outside Charlotte) and I'm looking for a coffee and pastry stop around Fayetteville. I've scanned through this site's Restaurants & Bars database and noticed Max & Moritz Bakery & Restaurant. Any 'hounds tried this place?

Who are Max und Moritz?

    Hi melanie,

    I stayed in Fayetteville for 6 months (whew) and found little Houndworthy, sorry to say. My favorite is actually in Spring Lake and it's not what you're looking for. However, if you're in the mood for lunch check it out:

    Nice people, wonderful food, and you'll have the opportunity to tell many of your Military Service Members thank you ;)

      No Thai (even Esan/Issan) this trip, but thanks for this rec and all your help for my trip planning.

      Are you saying that Max & Moritz specifically is not houndworthy or the general area?

        Fayetteville is a typical military town; if you want to go to a strip club, get a tattoo, pawn your belongings, or rent-to-own some furniture, you're in luck. Otherwise, not so much.

          Haha so true! Poor girls on Bragg Blvd in last night's make-up made me sad.

          Sorry Melanie, I never heard of that place. It's been a year since I've been and work on the base was busy. It looks good though, so if you go tell me what you think. I'll pass it on to my Bragg peeps.

            Ok, it's looking like my best option nearby. I came across a couple other German places in my searching as well.

      Very authentic, right down to the 4 frauen in the corner chatting in German. More later.

        The 5-grain brötchen was great, especially the chewy crust. Sunflower seeds, flax seeds, whole oats, and I don't know what else. I'd asked if there were other types of broetchen and was told that there are usually an assortment but something happened that morning and only one kind was made. I also had a German coffee, a stronger brew than the usual coffee offered here, that was a good pick-me-up for the long drive.

        To go, I asked what the most popular items were and bought the apple strudel (also available in a sugar-free version) and a cherry pinwheel. The apples in the strudel were overcooked and mushy, and the pastry was not flaky. The pinwheel fared better, not too sweet on the filling and many-layered light pastry.

        I noticed that the day's menu included curry wurst. Wish I could go back for that.
