Bernhard’s German Bakery: Marietta

posted on December 30, 2010 at 6:41 pm

While at the newly renovated Weinerz Factory Store and Deli (look for my article in Creative Loafing in the next week or so), I spied Bernhard’s German Bakery next door.
Since Moon has a fetish for German pastries, I popped in on my way out of the parking lot. Bad move. Every single thing looked amazing. It took every ounce of self-control for me to not buy way too much stuff. I failed. Although, it was minor failure considering the sheer abundance of pastries, cookies, and breads. You name it. They have it. Here’s my loot:
I am a linzer cookie expert and believe me when I tell you this is the best one I have ever had. Flaky, crispy, just enough powdered sugar and a gooey preserve center. A must buy. Above that is a dense chocolate and vanilla cake soaked in rum and filled with raspberry preserves then covered in dark chocolate. To the right of that, a layered hazelnut cake filled with buttercream and topped with chocolate ganache. In front of that, a shortbread cookie thing topped with crushed hazelnut brittle and held together with chocolate. And, finally, the bakery’s version of a black and white cookie, which is really a jam-filled cookie covered in chocolate. Not pictured: the soft homemade pretzel I had as a snack later on.

Next time, I’m getting bread and some of their lunch items. Dying to sink my teeth into the bratwurst sandwich. Already love this place and in case you are wondering, yes, it is worth the drive.

    I drive by both locations all of the time and have never tried them. I have made the trip to Weinerz twice, only to find that they were closed when I got there. Thanks for reminding me to give them both a shot.
