The entrance to Castle Shops in downtown Frankenmuth

After spending an hour or so at Bronner’s CHRISTmas Wonderland, we headed downtown to check out the businesses district of Frankenmuth.  What we found was a shock.  Tourists packed the streets of a vibrant, bustling downtown anchored by the Bavarian Inn and Zehnder’s.  We drove around for a while looking for a place to park.  We finally found one in a parking lot on the other side of the covered bridge.  It was a hot day and no one had had anything to drink since lunch at the Blackforest Brew Haus & Grill (review HERE). One of the first places we ran into was the Castle Shops.  We noticed a bakery and figured they’d have bottled water or soda or something to drink. 

The Castle Bakery is the first thing you come to when you walk down the steps to the Castle Shops.  The whole shopping area is located below the Bavarian Inn Restaurant.  The feel of the whole area is that of an old castle.  The buiding is all stone from floor to ceiling.  The bakery takes up a huge portion of the area when you first walk in.  There is a case displaying their goodies that runs from the door all the way to the other side of the shop.  J found the bottled water and grabbed one of those then went to pay.  On the way, she noticed a chocolate chip cookie with mini pretzels baked into it.  It looked way too good to pass up, so she didn’t.  It didn’t look appetizing to me, but she loved it. 

Just a few steps down to treats and cookies at the Castle Bakery in Frankenmuth

While she was doing that, I was looking around at some of their other offerings.  The bread looked delicious.  They were putting out fresh loads of Cinnamon Bread when I was standing there and it smelled sooooooo good.  There’s also a huge selection of pastry’s which is what caught my mom’s attention.

She got two cherry turnovers to hang on to for breakfast.  To my surprise, she actually did.  I baked Blueberry Muffins for them for breakfast, but she still chose to eat the turnovers she got from the castle bakery instead of fresh muffins.  Those turnovers must have been good. 😉

There are a lot of places to get sweets on Main Street in Frankenmuth, but the Castle Bakery offers something that you can’t get any place.

If you liked Frankenmuth (and thought it was crowded before) come back this weekend for the car show.

I saw a lot of signs for that. Too bad it wasn’t last weekend. My dad would have loved that. I’m going to Illinois this weekend for football, so we won’t be able to make it back there.

[…] 6:00, I headed to the Castle Shops to pick up the meal.  The nice thing about carry-out is you don’t have to go in to the […]
