Welcome To Jantz Cafe & Bakery – Merced, CA

It started out as a dream… A small from “scratch” bakery and sandwich shop that would provide good homemade food in a clean, friendly environment. Our doors opened in May of 2001. Before long, there was a loyal following. It has continued to grow in the last 12 years. In Nov. of 2009, we opened our second location in the little mountain community of Mariposa, CA. Then in Feb. of 2013, we opened our third location here in the El Portal Plaza in Merced, CA.

Homemade Meals Without The Work

Come in and enjoy your time with us! We offer a variety of pastries and pies to enjoy with our locally roasted freshly brewed coffee or espresso. In the morning we have a breakfast menu that includes a long time favorite ‘cinnamon swirl french toast’ from our bakery.

For lunch and afternoon, we have a variety of hot and cold sandwiches including our best seller since 2001, the chicken salad sandwich! Other popular items are the turkey avocado wrap, tri-tip sandwich (which we smoke on-site), and our burgers (made from local grass fed beef).

We also offer free WiFi, a banquet room that can be used for parties and meetings, and an outdoor patio. We look forward to serving you time and time again!

    5 star rating The food is great here! Not to mention their boysenberry pie!! My all time favorite! The food to be served did take a little while but it was worth the wait. They were really busy on a Wednesday afternoon for lunch.
