5 Best German Bakeries in Florida You Must Visit

Cakes from Bakery Beneficial Breads

So you all know Florida is all about the beach and Disney World. But did you also know we’ve got some seriously good German bakeries here too?

Between the fresh breads, sweet treats, and charcuterie, these spots will make you feel like you’re in Germany for a sec. And I will not repeat myself by telling you about the same bakeries I discovered recently, like the Yalaha Bakery. That combined with that special bread I found at the German Bread Guy motivated me to continue further and see what other German bakeries are there, and how good they are.

It was a simple and enjoyable experience as I would just pass by and pick something random from various spots. That helped me make this new list of 5 best German bakeries in Florida you shouldn’t miss.

5. The Glass Knife

The Glass Knife - German Bakery in Florida

This bakery is located in Winter Park. The appearance is a combination of modern and retro with a lot of details that remind of the old days. But the more important is what they have to offer.

The Glass Knife serves a variety of pastries and breads, including their signature cakes. Each item on the menu looks perfect. They also offer exclusive Onyx Coffee, making it a great spot for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

The setting is communal and smoke-free, with a dog-friendly policy, which adds to the relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Must-try items

  • Signature cakes: Beautifully crafted and delicious, these cakes are a highlight of their menu. The design and flavor make them perfect for any occasion.
  • Turkey bacon club sandwich: A perfect solution if you are looking for a quick breakfast. Honestly, it couldn’t get any better than this.
  • Breakfast and brunch: Besides the turkey sandwich, there are many other options. Therefore, this bakery can easily become my morning routine, and I won’t get bored by eating the same thing every day. I am planning to check out the Cheddar Biscuit Sandwich Plate the next time.

Each item is put together carefully and they pay attention to the little things, making each visit a little different. The bakery uses good ingredients to make everything taste good. It’s comfortable and welcoming there so it’s a nice place to relax and have something sweet to eat.

My recommendations

  • Premium ingredients: The bakery prides itself on using the best possible components. This dedication to quality is evident in every product they offer.
  • Cakes and Cookies: My favorite is Walnut Fudge Brownies. However, I must say that you may be surprised by the prices in this place. They are a bit too high, but the reason is that they really are using only top-quality ingredients.

One of the most popular products is their large sandwich, you can choose a range of ingredients for it. The sandwiches are packed with a variety of deli meats, cheeses, and fresh vegetables. I tried the Müller sandwich, which is perfect for those who prefer more meat and are quite hungry. Next time I come here, I will go for something more “exotic”, like that Deutsch Dip, which looks very interesting.

They also offer a wide selection of German beers and house-made cheesecakes.

It’s also a place where soccer fans meet up. They show German, English, and Spanish games. So, if you are following those leagues, this can be your perfect spot to enjoy. You get a real European atmosphere in this place.

So this is it for now. My take on great German spots in Florida. And I won’t stop here. After checking out some of the best restaurants, and bakeries, and introducing authentic German recipes, the reality is that I just scratched the surface. Therefore, you can expect more from me in the next few days and weeks as I will present a new place or another old-fashioned recipe.

In that matter, stay with me on my interesting and tasty journey around Florida.
