After operating inside the Bassett Place food court for a short while, Peter’s Brats and Breads has found itself in a cozy, new Westside location several spaces down from Eloise. Peter’s is where you’ll find traditional and seasonal German food items.
Warm red walls, wood accents and sometimes Peter himself are inviting and will make you want to linger in the small shop. Various bratwurst (German pork sausage) and schnitzel (breaded pork cutlet) combinations come with a roll and potato salad. They come plain or with toppings like mushroom gravy, peppers and tomato sauce or pineapple and cheese. Peter’s also serves cordon bleu, chicken breast stuffed with ham and cheese. Not a fan of pork? Try the goulash suppe, a hearty bowl of vegetable beef soup.
Standard pastries are available like croissants, danishes, strudel, cookies and of course black forest cake. More than 15 cake varieties can be ordered at Peter’s and are sometimes sold by the slice. Bienenstich (bee sting) is a popular specialty made of sweet yeast dough, filled with cream and topped with a caramelized honey nut topping. Rolls, pretzels and loaves of breads both sweet and savory are sold in the shop and can be special ordered.
During the holidays, Peter’s is the place to get your Christmas stolen, with or without marzipan.
