WHAT THEY DO “Come in for a treat and experience an old-fashioned real bakery.” That’s Rheinlander Bakery co-owner Maro Dimmer’s invitation to the community to enjoy the variety, atmosphere, and open production area of her store in Arvada. Rheinlander Bakery is known for authentic German and European pastries, including their famous apple strudel and seven-layer tortes. “We make everything from scratch,” says Dimmer, who owns the bakery with her husband Ed. “Nothing comes from a mix, not our dough, fillings, apples, cherries, Bavarian crème - nothing.” Popular bakery items include cream horns and eclairs, mini versions of the tortes, and baklava, which comes from Maro’s Greek heritage. The bakery is also one of the pioneers in gluten-free pastries, along with offering sugar-free and dairy-free choices. They also offer vegan options. The bakery’s goal is to serve the entire family.

HISTORY Ed Dimmer’s parents, Jacob and Katharina, were German immigrants who purchased the former Arvada Bakery and turned it into Rheinlander Bakery. For more than 54 years, the family has provided authentic European baked goods, including fresh-fromthe-oven cakes, strudels and coffeecakes. Rheinlander Bakery is famous for apple and poppy seed strudels, authentic potica, streuselkuchens and bienenstich. By Andrea Doray
