Description: 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.

“Touristy with mostly sandwiches”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Nice place to take a break and have a good sandwich. Lots of gift-shop kitch for sale and busy takeout business. Excellent bread.

“Unexpected...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

What a tremendous bakery - reminded me of that old German bakery that I grew up with. We tried as many of the offerings as possible, and every one was great. The pretzels were a pleasant addition to our drive that day, and the pie and lemon bars were as fresh and flavorful as could be. I hope to get back there in the near future...

“More than cakes and pastries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

The pastries and cakes are exceptional and so are the fresh breads and the sandwiches that are made with them. When ordering a sandich, choice of meat, bread, dressings, etc.
