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 Kohnen's Bakery. My favorite place in the Hach for fresh bread and cheese cake. Everything is amazing. Truthfully, any item on the menu is to die for...charming gift shop attached. Killer location downtown with easy parking. I love Kohnen's the best carbs of my life. Xoxo

This is a casual deli and bakery. The bakery products are very good. It is a German bakery with lots of struedel and danish. The sandwiches are big and made fresh with fresh meats and cheeses. If you are looking for deli sandwiches with the old world German twist come here!

Me and my husband love coming here on Sunday afternoons. They have great selection of breads and pastries. The sandwiches and soup of day are also very tasty. They even sell German beers. My only complain is that when it gets crowded, there is always a lot of confusion from people not knowing what the ordering process is and where... More

Does not look like one of the best bakeries I have ever had the delight to purchase food from. The German pretzels and baked goods are the best, Staff is friendly and what a nice stop for a snack or pastry.

Delicious made to order sandwiches. Baked goods made fresh daily. Large seating area including outdoor seating. Unique gifts and within walking distance of downtown shopping.
