In the 1850s a group of German immigrants settled in a lush river valley in east-central Iowa. They called their new home “Amana” after a passage in the Song of Solomon meaning “to remain faithful.” They established seven villages known as the Amana Colonies and lived communally, embracing a pure and simple way of life…including pride in workmanship, a home in the heartland, and sharing good food with good friends.
From its humble beginnings in 1981, the Amana Colonies Bakery & Cafe has quickly become an Amana favorite. With hundreds of unique tasteful breads, pastries, cookies, jams, and jellies you are bound to find the perfect treat no matter what the occasion. We take pride behind our products, from the quality of our goods; to the recipes and ingredients, we only send out the best. Enjoy.
