In many restaurants, standard types of bread - like baguette slices or Italian rolls - are complimentary with the meal. (The basket is not replenished, though, when it's empty.) However, in traditional southern German pubs, soft pretzels and German-style bread varieties can often be found on the table. Careful! The waiter makes an exact count when totaling up the bill, so taking a bite will cost.
