Sierra Vista has a lot of German influence, I suspect from the many soldiers stationed here (or retired here) who spent time in Germany and possibly also brought back German spouses. There are several cafes and bakeries in town which I have not been able to try out, but I am a big fan of The Bread Basket.

The Break Basket German Cafe

They have the most delicious breads and pastries!

Pretzel Rolls

Pretzel rolls. The BEST!


On the left are California sweet rolls (with lemon flavoring and cream cheese, cinnamon and raisins) and on the right are a pastry filled with cherry and cream cheese. The lady at the counter did tell me what they were, but I can’t remember! I love the California sweet rolls so much that the lady at the counter begins to bag them up when she sees me walk in!
