“Charming bakery, sinful desserts, offers BOGO!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

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.

“Jealous of their bread making skills”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Beautiful loafs of bread. Bought some just because it was so pretty. The cheese pretzel bread was a hit with the kids.

“YALAHA - the very best Bakery & Deli in Central Florida”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

If you haven't been to the YALAHA Bakery, either the main one on County Rd 48 or the store in Down Town Orlando, you have missed out on what I'd say "The essence of life....." Our neighbors told us about this unique place and since, we can't stay away from the place.
What else could you do on a nice saturday than take a nice drive (or ride your cycle) out to the country enjoy a nice German/American lunch in a very relaxing atmosphere of the YALAHA Bakery's Biergarten accompanied with live music. Take home a loaf of hearty original German Bread or Pastries. I can highly recommend this place in all aspects. You always meet nice people there. This spring, we met a couple who flew to YALAHA in their helicopter to pick up a "Frankenlaib", a true German Bread they said they fell in love with. YALAHA is an experience !

“Awesome German bakery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Take this from a German American who grew up going to Germany every summer this place is great. The bakery is slightly pricey, but very good. I also suggest going to the location in Yalaha FL as they have live entertainment on Saturday mornings.
