A to Z Blogging Challenge - Yalaha

I can’t wait to try the bread I just ordered from Yalaha Bakery!  I would have ordered the Hazelnut Cake but it isn’t on the “To Ship” list. This small town is on the way to anywhere, especially if you are heading north west from Orlando, and since I’m heading down to Orlando as you read this post, I’m going to stop in and see if I can’t get a piece of that Hazelnut cake. 

The original bakery
This bakery has been around since 1995, and the town has been around since around 1869 and sits on the edge of the beautiful Lake Harris. It is not on the beaten path so to say, but close enough that if you like German baked goods, you’ll want to stop here and check out the Yalaha Bakery. They use organic products, and try new creations any given day, such as gluten-free or sugar-free breads and pastries. They also offer a variety of whole grain products.   

Outside they have a large courtyard where live music is heard. Bikers stop and sit a spell, as do cyclists and folks out for a country drive… Stop in and see what the fuss is all about. I bet you enjoy it.

They offer live music here as well

Biker's stop, and cyclists like it too

Cyprus trees are beautiful here
And by the way, I received the bread I ordered, and could not be happier! This bakery truly lives up to its reputation.

    Oh you are tempting my French heart, here, Lisa. This bakery sounds awesome. Love the scenic photos of the area as well. Good luck for the end of the challenge.

  18. Hi human, Lisa,

    Yallaha and aha, bakery. Nice one and because I'm never one to loaf, but sometimes roll over, I shall now go and attempt to wake up my human. Tell him the good news that the ridiculous alphabet thing is nearly over. Will be nice to get the blogging community back. Arf!

    Pawsitive wishes,

    Penny :)

  19. Hi Lisa - that's wonderful to read of their excellent service - and what a creative name for a bakery. The Hazenut cake sounds good too .. Yalaha - I shall remember and Lake Harris looks lovely too - and I like off the beaten track! Cheers Hilary
