Our first stop was to Kittie's Cakes. I am OBSESSED with Kittie's. I first learned about them when Autumn Theodore featured their cupcakes on her food blog Best of the Menu and since then I've been hooked. On this recent visit I was on a mission to try something besides the cupcakes because I know how amazing those are. I constantly see mouthwatering photos of their breakfast spread that includes biscuits, cinnamon rolls, breakfast breads, scones, and other assorted pastries. Nate and I tried the cinnamon rolls and they were out of this world, they alone are worth the nearly hour drive it takes us to get to the village. Kittie's serves Sumptown Coffee, both hot and cold which is a great thing because who knows what the Ohio weather will be doing any given day and it's nice to have an option for cold coffee on those hot summer days.

Our next stop in German Village was to Juergens Bakery. If you are looking for an authentic German meal it doesn't get more authentic that Juergens.
I ordered Pfannenkuchen (a German pancake) something I've never tried before but thoroughly enjoyed. The pancake was thin like a crepe and was served with whipped cream and raspberry sauce. Nate ordered the Bauern Fruehstueck or Farmers Breakfast which is a hearty scramble of eggs, breakfast meats, potatoes, and cheese. Before our meals arrived we were offered an assortment of German breads. We were so impressed with the service, everyone at Juergens made us feel at home and made us want to come back again. We promised Rosemarie that we would return soon to try the bratwurst and sauerkraut.
We ended up leaving with a box full of goodies that included cheesecake, cherry strudel, and a blueberry shortcake, all of which were delicious.
