Service is food line style where one orders and you are later called that your meal is ready. Sandwiches are huge and made with fresh baked bread. Staff is very cheerful and make you feel welcome. There is also a small gift shop with a German heritage theme. Two people can have a nice meal by ordering one sandwich of... More

This is a pretty neat place in the center of Tehachapi. It is the old cafeteria style go through the line to order, then pick up the food, but even when crowded they are quick. The food is very good, large and tasty portions, and the bakery part is amazing, definitely do not go on a diet. They are a... More

The sweet rolls and Tiramasu were outstanding. Flavors well blended and pastry light and flaky. Did not eat there but bought a loaf of white bread. Felt is was unremarkable and overpriced. Dissapointing.

Parking is the worst, crowded and not suitable to large trucks, like... More

This was a nice surprise. We were looking for some dessert after lunch and found this wonderful bakery that makes so many delicious fresh baked items. We loved the cheesecake. I got original New York cheesecake and my wife got the cherry cheesecake. They were both so light and creamy and I loved the graham cracker crust. We bought some... More

Oh my, pastry and bread heaven. Great variety of breads. White, rye, whole wheat, etc. Sweets like cream puffs, cookies and pastry. Scones that are more traditional. Beer selection. Sandwiches. Just good eats.

Kohnen's Country Bakery is a don't miss if you are in Tehachapi or passing by on the 58. I have never been disappointed with the food and service. For a great treat, try the Cubano sandwich. It's awesome. The pastries and soups cannot be beat.

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.
