Sam and Shirley Rothman


Welcome to Katella Bakery, Deli and Restaurant, a landmark institution in Los Alamitos for over 50 years.  Started by our parents, Sam and Shirley, who came to America from Eastern Europe in search of a better life.  We continue their tradition of authentic family style meals and fresh baked rye, challah, cakes and pastries.  All of our items are prepared in house including our corned beef and pastrami.  Today, Sam’s initial recipes live on in the hands and hearts of our expert bakers.  A portion of the original mother dough still starts each and every loaf we bake. Many of our traditional meals are Shirley’s original recipes; Matzo Ball Soup,Potato Latkes, Sweet and Sour Cabbage, and Chicken Soup. Whether you are here for one of our signature meals, or for the best Pastrami Sandwich around, you can be assured that quality, care, and great taste are in every bite.  We thank you for being part of our success!
