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.

We drove through Tehachapi for the first time on our way back to Redding Ca from Las Vegas trying to find food. We first stopped at Subway and I get really tired of their sandwiches because they never put enough meat on them and they are just boring. My boyfriend went to Yelp and found this bakery so we decided... More

Wow, Karen, The Kohnen family is so pleased we did not disappoint you. We try very hard to get it right. We agree the Rubien is easily shared. In your opinion should we write "consider sharing" next to this item on our menu? Thank you for your kind words. It means a lot. Thomas and Colleen Kohnen and family. More

We stayed in Tehachapi for the night while traveling to Southern Utah. We had heard they had a good bakery in town but this was fabulous. We love German Bakeries so to find this one in a cute, sleepy town was unexpected. We bought two pies and fresh pretzels, and loaf of bread to go and then on our way... More

Located in the renovated train depot in Tehachapi, CA is a food destination one must not miss. Don't let the full name, Kohnen's Country Bakery, fool you, there is so much more at Kohnen's than your typical bakery.
