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.

My husband had the Cubana and I had the Rueben. They were both really good, but we both LOVED the Rueben! We also had a mini Carmel Apple and a mini Brownie Cheeses cake and they were wonderful! Also loved the big sturdy jar ice tea glasses! I would highly recommend this place!

This German-themed bakery in the heart of downtown Tehachapi is a delight. Their fresh-made sandwiches to your order are superb. Simply fill out an order form and hand it to the cashier. They can also make a salad to order. Shelves are amply stocked with fresh-baked breads (they're the same ones used in the kitchen to make the sandwiches). While... More

Great sandwiches, baked goods are like home-made, and service is great. Only down side is that this place is so popular that you have to wait awhile to get your sandwiches - but, the wait is worth it.

We went early in the morning for a Danish and coffee breakfast. Really hard to chose from all the great looking items in the bakery case. Enjoyed a few free samples before making my decision. Take home a loaf of one of their special breads while your at it! Everything was absolutely fresh.

Kohnen's is well known by locals and came highly recommended. It certainly did not disappoint as a great lunch spot. We were traveling on the Hwy 58 and looking for a place to stop for lunch and this was it. Great homemade bakery goods, sandwiches and salads. Very LARGE sandwiches. Staff was friendly. Plenty of street parking in the center... More

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!
