Lutz Cafe & Pastry Shop Restaurant Review

: Just making it past the pastry display cases at the front of this place is a triumph of willpower over good sense. The lunch and early dinner menu is no different, bringing with it crêpes, quiche and sandwiches as well as a few more substantial dishes like goulash and pizza. But it's the creamy, sensuous desserts that continue to take center stage (we highly recommend the chocolate brandy cake). You’ll also find Swiss chocolates, coffee cakes, marzipan creations and mini pastries that are almost too pretty to eat. When it’s warm, grab a seat on the lovely garden patio and indulge.
