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.

I LOVE the eclairs and macaroons. The breads or scrumptious. I especially love the Sechskorn bread. It is quaint and the staff is friendly. I have never tried anything bad here for sure.

The breads, pastries, soups and salads are great. I have been known to go there more than once a week especially during soup season. Their poor boy sandwich can easily feed two people.

Everytime we go to Tehachapi we always stop in for pie. The French apple pie is the best. And we take home a fresh baked loaf of bread. The sandwiches look delicious.

Go here to build your own sandwich or salad (forms to fill out what you want on each), or for soup Sep-May. The German bakery items are INCREDIBLE and our favorites include the cinnamon crisp, the chocolate granola bar, eclairs, cookies, and nougat talers--ok, really ANY of their desserts are out of the park! Definitely grab a soft pretzel to... More

Kohnens German Bakery is a world-class bakery that we are lucky enough to have in the small town of Tehachapi! Everything is superb, from the pastries (Danishes, eclairs, cream puffs, cookies, etc.) to the breads and sandwiches. In the colder months, they serve fabulous soups, too! Sometimes they can be a bit busy, but it is always worth the wait!... More
