JB's has very creative German-style pastries and breads. Fun outing for breakfast when in Corpus Christi or on the island. Informal, friendly staff, great place to indulge with hot coffee. Relax and enjoy!

No way you will be disappointed with this place! The minute you walk in the door you realize it's worth it! Parking is a pain, there will always be someone ahead of you, and someone behind you. The only difficult thing in this bakery is choosing what to have! We have dined in, and taken items to-go. A definite must... More

If you are in Corpus Christi, you HAVE to try JB's Bakery. Their baked goods are amazing. Their pastries are exactly the same as you would find in Europe. I wanted to eat every single item on the displays. A variety of strudels, pies, cakes, cheesecakes, bread, cookies and they also serve lunch!!! We ordered waffles and apple strudel and... More

Hidden in a strip, but easy to stop at while coming or going from seashore. Bakery items fresh, well baked. Inside dining area a little worn looking.

The bakery items are AMAZING. I took mine to go so I could try several! The wurst and pretzels were plated beautifully. The German Potato salad was the perfect side dish.

Every time I see this place, I have to stop and fill a bag with fresh bread and pastry. This really is an authentic German Bakery.

Great selection of wonderful pastries and savory items. Stopped in on a whim, but we'll make a special trip back here next time we are in Corpus.

We stopped by Saturday morning but it was too crowded so we came back Sunday for lunch. Glad we did, the food reminded me of what I ate when I lived in Germany for a year. I had the German hot dog (brautwurst, sauerkraut, cheese on a baguette) and I had to wrestle it away from my daughters they liked... More

Absolutely loved all the German baked goods and bread offered at this quaint little cafe. Reminds me of the bakery goods I often enjoyed during my 3 years in Germany. See for yourself...
