There is a small patio out front (maybe 8 tables total). Some shade and pet friendly. Even a water bowl for the pup. Great staff and service. A must visit if you're in Tehachapi.

Sandwiches made to order! They are huge and absolutely delicious. The Reuben was excellent and the pastrami was just as good. The real treat was the bottled German beer - haven't had a better one since Munich!

It's too easy to blow through little towns alongside busy highways. Slow down, head for charming downtown Tehachapi. You can park right next to the bakery or in front. Order your favorite pastry -- mine's raisin cream scones! Add coffee or your favorite drink. Pull up a chair inside or out. Enjoy. Oh yeah, pick up a bag of yummies... More

Fantastic coffee and pastries. Great sandwiches. Very nice decorations. Wish they had served milkshakes or smoothies during summer. Otherwise, I'd definitely go back....

Cinnamon rolls were fresh and delicious. You can get many fresh baked items here as well as many types of German foods. Was very busy yet service was fast.

Visited this place specifically for their gluten free macaroons. I can honestly say I was not disappointed. There is a great selection of products and drinks. Place is clean and always busy. Prices are good too.

We enjoyed the selection here so much that we returned everyday we were in town. They have a wide variety of breakfast bakery items, sandwiches (which are large enough to split) and other yummy items. My husband and I miss their pretzel sticks which are soft on the inside and crunchy and salty on the outside. This is a don't... More

Stopped in town to find this bakery that my friend raved about...Kohnens. The bakery items looked delicious!!!!! Using extreme will power, filled out one of the forms to order a salad ...they have forms for sandwiches too. My friend and I paid a very reasonable price for a small salad and we both were happy, full, and healthy. When I... More

Delyn, thank you for your kind review. We're so glad the Salad hit the spot with you and your friend. We're curious, did you make back into the bakery on your way out of town? If so, what did you try as your take home treat? More

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.
