REAL German Bread
A German friend of mine just emailed me about this place, and I quote:
"they are armenian and they import the bread from germany:

you ask for the german oat bread and also the sunflower seed bread ....
best if you call in first to make sure they have it in the store ...
i mostly take the frozen bread and bake it myself ...soooo yummie !!!! if you want them to bake it for you it is best to call in first so you don't have to wait.
let me know how you like it !!!"
Did a search here & surprised I can't find anything. It's always been a huge frustration of my life not to be able to find great German bread here. Before I drive all the way from the OC, does anyone have any input?

They have a second store in Van Nuys and I used to live near there. I have absolutely no input into whether they have REAL German bread, it seemed to be all lavash.
That said, why not just go to Streit's? Or if you don't want to schlep to Downey, they sell Streit's breads at both Wholesome Choice locations.

ooh man..That is one of my favorite memories of being over in Germany, getting up & going to the local bakery in my wife's little hometown to make the brötchen run for our breakfast.
I've yet to find anything that comes close around here. I'd make the drive to Peet's if it's true they somehow have access...
Also , Globe Deli on Harbor near 19th carries a few good German breads, just not a very big selection of them.
Maybe see if Schreiner's Deli will walk next door to Berolina and pick some up for you and bring them down to the Irvine farmers' market on Saturday morning? I imagine you should also purchase some stuff from Schreiner's, but that really shouldn't make your life too miserable... they have awesome sausage, Schinken and meats. I'm addicted to their Braunschweiger.

Hello fellow German Bread lovers!.... I am the daughter of Slava, he is the distributor of this fine bread to Karabagh and other small Russian and European Markets.
Our supply comes from the Backer Back bakery in Central Germany.
Let me know if you've got a craving, and I'll figure out the location closest to you, or ship our a loaf or two. We don't have a website, because we distribute to stores, but our Store "Tashkent Produce" does sell the bread as well. Check us out on FB or shoot me an email yulianna . rafailova @ gmail . com
