Ludger’s Bavarian Cakery

A Family Tradition

Ludger’s Bavarian Cakery is a family-owned bakery, cafe and coffeehouse established in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We are named after the man who started it all, Ludger (pronounced LEWD-gur) Schulz.  With over 50 years of experience, Ludger’s has grown into a space for all your sweet and savory needs.

Our legacy began in 1964 when Ludger Schulz began his culinary apprenticeship in Münster, Germany. After gaining years of culinary experience in Sweden, Switzerland, Ireland, Canada, and the United States, Ludger opened his first restaurant in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Originally called the Shadow Mountain Inn, it eventually evolves into what was known as Ludger’s Restaurant.  It was during this time that he began offering the famous Bavarian Cream Cheesecake for weddings and other special occasions.
