German Bread Haus

311 E. Commercial Blvd. Oakland Park, FL 33334 | Oakland Park | 954-491-4464

Location Description:

Willkommen to the German Bread Haus, an authentic German bakery and retail store built in an over-the-top cute theme. The structure looks like a gingerbread house oddly located on a nondescript block on Commercial Boulevard. The inspiration behind the Haus came from owner Dieter Dauer. Before he left Germany, Dauer used to tell his two kids at bedtime the story of Hansel and Gretel, so the Haus represents this magical experience he shared with his children. Dauer and his wife, Norma, have owned and operated the bakery since 1986. They bake German favorites like Bavaria Farmer Rye, Dresdner stollen, and apple strudel. There's also a back house that was converted into a certified organic facility, where the healthier breads are made with what the owners refer to as "Flour Power."
