Backstube Austrian Cafe and Bakery Reno, Quick report

After a few days in Tahoe, hubby and I made the drive over to Reno to visit sister Janet and family and to enjoy turkey dinner....I was in charge of dessert, so at Janet's suggestion we stopped at this place in a small shopping center on the corner of (West) McCarran and Mayberry.

On the Sunday before Christmas most of the pastries were spoken for, but we were able to grab a chocolate/rasberry cake and a linzer torte: both were excellent. If I lived nearby I'd definitely stop in to try more of the selections...

There is a nice wine shop in the same complex (Whispering Vine). At first glance it seemed a bit California-centric, but I think that might be because we mostly explored the front room, and I think the rooms are divided more or less regionally. We were pleased to discover a decent selection of single malts in the back room...
