When you're craving a pork cutlet schnitzel sandwich where are you going to go? If German is your first language you probably know the answer; you go to Edelweiss bakery and deli on E Commercial.
Now usually when places call themselves both a bakery and a Deli they're really just one or the other; but Edelweiss really is both. You can get pastries, cakes and cookies, or a pound of black forest ham.
The mark of a good German place is when most of the customers communicate with really tall counter people in German; and thats what's going on here. Its not unusual to find someone who has traveled a bit of a distance stocking up on their German fare; so you may wait awhile for someone with a big order.
They have a dining room here and they also have lunch specials every day; mashed potato stuffed meatloaf, swiss chicken schnitzel, bratwurst with white cabbage. So you can come here for lunch and eat in, or take home some cold cuts and cookies.
I just wanted a pork cutlet schnitzel on their homemade hearty rye bread.
Its a big cutlet; much too big for pretty big slices of rye bread. The sandwich comes with lettuce and tomato and mayo; it's a big sandwich for $5.95 and its just delicious. The only complaint is that the tomato slices weren't as ripe as they could be.
