While visiting one of our cabins in Helen, Georgia, you will undoubtedly want to visit the great restaurants we have in downtown Helen. A good vacation can be made into a great vacation with a fantastic meal. Here are some of the fine eating establishments in Helen.
A great place to eat a great sandwich, or to pick up some baked goods.
“Hofer’s Bakery was started by Horst & Gerda Hofer who came from Schwabach Germany to the U.S. in the late 1950’s. After starting a chain of bakeries in Atlanta called Chateau Pastry Shoppe and a wholesale operation called European Bakeries Ltd., both operations for another company, the Hofer’s decided to open their own Bakery in 1973. 18 years later, after having become one of the most recognized and award winning retail bakeries in the U.S., the Hofer’s decided to build a second location. One couldn’t have dreamed of a more unique location for a German bakery than in Helen Georgia.
Hofer’s of Helen, located on North Main Street, in downtown Helen is housed in the former home of the 1st National Bank of White County. After extensive remodeling, a real Bavarian Konditorei & Cafe was created.
The business is now owned and operated by the Hofer’s son Ralph, who along with a trained staff, provides the quality of product and service on which the company was founded. The Bakery was built to combine old world quality and modern European equipment. We bake all our breads in a stone hearth oven. All the ingredients we use are the finest quality available.”
