Description: Kohnen's Country Bakery, located in historic downtown Tehachapi...
Kohnen's Country Bakery, located in historic downtown Tehachapi, California, is a delightful contemporary German bakery designed with Old World Charm. Honoring his German food traditions, baker Thomas Kohnen makes every batch from scratch - including some 20 varieties of artisan breads dense with whole grains, full flavors, and crisp crusts. Kohnen's offers fresh bread baked daily, including crusty rye, basil-barley garden, six-grain, sun dried tomato, delicate cinnamon raisin, and even pizza bread, not to mention pretzels, boiled-then-baked bagels, and Brotchen - traditional, crusty German breakfast rolls. We also offer refreshing German beer and freshly brewed iced tea. Desserts are gorgeous and irresistible, too. A few temptations are cinnamon crisps, apricot-walnut kolaches, and espresso chocolate chip cookies. The cafe also serves fresh-made soups and made-to-order sandwiches using Kohnen's breads for take-out, dining inside, or on the patio.

Traditional Bakery

Traditional Bakery that is a MUST STOP for the weary traveler. Excellent old world recipes make for simply delicious food. Fresh daily breads, rolls, and other German treats, as well as sandwiches in a casual atmosphere. Located right next to the rail road tracks in the windy town of Tehachapi.

This is worth a trip out of your way, even though it probably IS on your way! They take zucchini bread, bear claws, and assorted Danishes, cookies and pastries to a level I never imagined!

I have had lunch here twice, and enjoyed it both times. First time I got a tuna sandwich, which you could easily split between two adults and not go away hungry! It was excellent! Second visit I got a small salad and it was equally filling. The place can get busy around lunchtime, so I would go around 11 am... More

Yes they are known for the BEST bakery you could find, but bring your appetite. Hardy sandwiches, great soups, home made breads for sale, and great cards, photos, gifts or antiques to buy. Just a great home town atmosphere inside or out on the deck. You will also find German foods for purchase. Enjoy!
