Restaurant Reviews


"Edelweiss, Edelweiss, every morning you greet me." And that's because, in Fort Lauderdale, you're not just a song, you're a bakery (2909 E. Commercial Blvd., 954-772-1529). "Small and white, clean and bright, you look happy to meet me," and serve me all sorts of delectable baked goods. I especially love your apple strudel, Black Forest cakes, honey-grain breads, seeded kaiser rolls, and hot-from-the-oven pretzels. My favorite might be the butter-and-sugar cookies, the varieties of which take up an entire glass deli case. "Blossom[s] of snow may you bloom and grow, bloom and grow forever" in my bakery bag, so that I may never run out. I'll even pay the $13.00 a pound for them. "Edelweiss, Edelweiss, bless [South Florida] forever."
