The lederhosen and delicious pastries are out – Saturday marked the grand opening of Heidi's Finest German Bakery at 49 E. Ridgewood Ave.
We've that the is a family operation, with a couple moving from Germany to the U.S. to open the business. They reportedly looked at numerous locations before determining Ridgewood was the optimal spot, sources said.
The owners weren't available to speak this early week and for good reason – a day after opening the business, they were at the hospital welcoming a baby to the world.
Heidi's serves cakes, pastries, breads, coffee, and more. A store employee said over 300 different items are made at the bakery, so there's definitely something for everyone.
It's open Mon-Thur from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., Fri. from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., Sat. from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Stay tuned for a full profile next week.
