I've been going to this bakery since I was five and it was located in Toco Hills. My mother got our birthday cakes here (German chocolate). She would run us in for an occasional chocolate eclair treat. The bakery was run by a German family and there were always German women working in here.

I am now 47 and the location has moved to a place that is off the beaten path. It is worth finding. You are more likely to see a young gal w/tattoos behind the counter than an old German woman, but the baking is the same. I bought my husband's birthday cake here recently: it was an excellent spice cake and very reasonably priced.

I am a bit of a food snob and this bakery rivals any pastry I've eaten in Paris. I come from a German family and the gingerbread is authentic-- as are the cakes. The person who gave this bakery a bad review is probably a competior--or someone who wants to see this place fail.

Everyone I know in Atlanta loves this bakery--and have for years. It is an Atlanta institution. It temporarily closed and there was a period of shock and mourning for us all. I was so happy to hear that it had re-opened-- rushed over immediately to celebrate! Delicious cakes, cookies, doughnuts, gingerbread, stolen, etc. Check it out and see for yourself.

I have been a customer of this bakery since I was (6) years of age - I am now (53). I followed it from the original location in Toco Hills shopping center to its present location. I now come all the way from Alpharetta to stock up on my favorites. My all time favorites are the mocha butter cream cake and ginger bread men. The mocha butter cream cake is so creamy and rich - the cake is delcious chocolate - topped with the light mocha butter cream frosting, chocolate sprinkles and chocolate coffee beans. It combines deep chocolate flavor with not too sweet wonderful buttercream - it is just heaven. When my Mom would visit me at college this cake was the one thing I always requested from home. The ginger bread men seem like a common item - but these are perfection. They are crisp with a butter type wash and - of course - the raisins. The mini chocolate eclairs are great, too. Bottom line: whatever you take home from here - you will not be disapointed. Anyone giving this bakery a one star must be competition. It is just impossible otherwise!

The original owner of this bakery was German but he passed away a year or so ago. I'mnot sure if it is friends or family who now run it, but they have for years as the original owner was sick. On the day he passed and on his funeral they were closed because i really needed a fritter that day and they had a sign on the door.

This is a wonderful bakery. The reviewer below who gave it one star may simply be a food snob or even perhaps a paid detractor since she/he only has one review. I've never been to Germany but I know what tastes good to me and this is it. I bought a Chocolate Cream Pie from there that was the best I've ever eaten. The meringue on top tasted like marshmallows and somehow was both light and substantial.

Finally, they have TWO DISCOUNT racks. One is for day old stuff and it is mostly half price. The other is the freezer where everything costs 1.75. It used to cost just a dollar and I found a blueberry pie in there once.
I'm only giving up this secret because I'm moving away from Atlanta and don't care if others find it now.

Pros: Nice staff, everyone can describe everything, discount/day old items, delicious pastries

Cons: Location (hard to tell where it is), nothing else

seriously i dont care what you call this place all i care is the cakes are the best i have had at any price !!
the pastries are very good also (we tried several) and WOW the doughnuts AWSOME!!!!
Krispy Kreme eat your heart out ! the glazed type are so light and fluffy they almost float on air.
the prices are very reasonable i would have paid twice the price for the rasberry butter cream cake i purchased.
they are kind of hidden (easy to miss) the road is small and is hard to see but it is worth the trip no matter what !
(THE ROAD IS ON THE SAME SIDE AS HOME DEPOT AND IS RIGHT BETWEEN HOME DEPOT AND NORTH DRUID HILLS ROAD) i will go there any time i get back to atlanta

Pros: GLAZED DOUGHNUTS (YUM) AND THE CAKES + PRICES

Cons: NONE

I purchased a cake to feed 40 guests - it turned out to be a HUGE cake - for an 80th birthday celebration. It was divine. It was a yellow cake with two layers of strawberry filling topped with cream cheese icing. Beautiful and delicious. We gave tons of it away and still had plenty of cake for a full week of dessert. And you can't beat the price - just $45, tax included :-)

The apple fritter doughnut holes, not sure of the name, are like eating a little piece of heaven. They are lucious, fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth goodness that makes you want to hoarde the whole box for yourself.

I wonder if anyone associated with this business has ever even been to Germany. The bread was okay. It passed. But the pasteries are an abomination to all things German. Not one pastry could pass for being remotely German, especially the cakes. Save yourself a trip to Decatur and don't even bother. The only German thing about this bakery is the name.

Cons: The pastries and other baked goods.

Last month was my my mother in-law birthday and she loves german chocolate cake so somebody at work told me to check this place so I went and made some order. When I got the cake, It looks freshly baked and when we tasted it, the cake was so delicious and it's not like any ordinary cake.

The German Bakery is tucked away on a tiny side street off Lawrenceville Hwy. You'd never know it was there, but once you've discovered it, you will want to go back again and again and again.

No "store bought" cake from a Publix or Kroger or anywhere else can compare with the delicious flavor and texture of a German Bakery cake. So rich and delicious you'll think you've died and gone to cake Heaven! Seriously, the best birthday or special occasion cake you can buy.

The German Bakery also provides your standard bakery fare of donuts, cookies, tarts, etc. Their cheese straws just melt in your mouth and are a perfect additon to any party menu.

Do yourself a favor and opt for something a little nicer than your standard grocery store sheet cake for your next special occasion. Your loved ones will thank you!

PROS: Real buttercream frosting
CONS: Sometimes don't answer phone

The best old fashioned chocolate cake - at the best prices. Great breads, rolls, etc.. Dont ever waste your money on those sugar and lard frosted cakes from the grocery store again. Prices are very reasonable...almost cheap for the quality. Depending upon who answers the phone you may have a little communication problem but still be sure to call ahead and order your cake so you are sure they arent sold out!
