Sep 10, 2013 - German Bakery

Went and explored old town Arvada, nice walking with lots of shops. We went particularly for a German Bakery, Rhinelander, and we were not disappointed. All types of strudels, cookies, and specialty desserts. Small bakeries are hard to find, most have folded due to the large supermarkets having bakeries in them.
