“Worth finding for the bread”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Fantastic bread, a little hard to find and off the beaten track well worth the walk. Nice find. We will do again for a full meal thanks.

“How Quirky Can You Get?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

How is it possible that a German Bakery serves the best Chinese food you can eat - ANYWHERE? In addition to the super breads, soft pretzels, full menu kitchen, special German foods on Wednesday nights, you better get ready for a special surprise if you show up on Friday night. First, it's best to have a reservation because Carola's is "cozy". Next, the Chinese food has become wildly popular with both locals and gringos alike. Super fresh seafood dishes along with pork, chicken and great veggies along with cold, cold beer and nice wine selection. Cafe Carola makes our living in Samara more pleasant!
