I really wanted to like Esthers as I have been enjoying the bread and pasteries, however I was very disappointed. I tried the asparagas/salmon strudel and it must have been set up earlier and left around until I arrived. The Schlemmer was only a few slices of meats and cheese with only a few slices of bread and the "soft boiled egg" wasn't close to being soft boiled. All in all it was too expensive and not that good to warrant sitting down. Even the beer was an issue as we were told what was on tap is not good and that we should order by the bottle. Hmmm. I suggest you buy the bread/pasteries and make your own meal at home.
