This bakery is an extension of the original Yalaha Bakery in Yalaha, Florida. I was so happy that they opened a local shop. The bakery is very tiny and almost easy to miss. It sits on a corner with very limited parking, and by limited, I mean only 3 or 4 spaces. Doesn't matter. You won't be in there too long anyway. There are plans to open up their back yard and offer a dining area. Currently, there are just one or two tables with a few chairs.
We went there just to get desserts, but they do offer sandwiches as well. We ordered several desserts. The fruit tart cake was the best. It was a light cake, layered with cream and fruit. The carrot cake was okay, but a bit dry. Th frosting was delicious. The big brownie cake with a huge dollop of chocolate in the middle was also dry, but the chocolate was very good quality. We also enjoyed the berry tart and mixed fruit tart. Our children loved the shortbread cookies, which you can buy in mini-bags of three. The prices were moderate, but we made out on the tarts because they were BOGO. We were there at around 4 pm, maybe that's why they had a few things on sale. They didn't taste day-old.
Just so we didn't leave with only fattening stuff, we bought a loaf of German rye which was terrific. We toasted and spread butter on it. Very authentic taste.
They also offer a few variations on coffee drinks. One customer was clearly enjoying his coffee and dessert, making sure he drank every drop and ate every crumb.
They also offer German deli meats. I wish I had paid more attention, but the display of desserts in the cases was just too alluring.
We look forward to the bakery and cafe expanding. It will be a cool little spot to have lunch.
