  1. I'm guessing not. It's already open although the grand opening is tomorrow. I tried some of their items on Friday. Not bad, but I don't think it's quite what kman is looking for in a bread.

      which breads did you try? what makes it german bread, and how is the pricing?

        I'm not sure what makes it german bread. I tried the rustique, their croissant and one more I can't remember the name of. I didn't try any of their loaves though. The loaves are a little on the pricey side with their signature loaf $10 and another loaf $14 if I remember correctly. The things I tried all had very muted flavors. The croissant had a nice flakey exterior, but was kind of bland with no buttery note. The rustique was pretty rubbery and hard to tear into at first, but once I toasted it up it was a lot better. The last item was some weird pastry where they sandwiched some cream cheese with white bread slices, battered it and fried it. Looked interesting, didn't taste very interesting. The doughnuts looked good though.

    2. In general I'm not a huge fan of Japanese bread, but willing to give it a try. I have to say the Pumpernickel loaf from Breadshop at the KCC market was good (pig&lady carry it.)
