Always have stopped here, but this time over Labor Day something seemed to be different...did they change their cookie recipes? Their ginger snaps were good as always, but their Snicker Doodles were bad...a hint to the baker, they are supposed to have cinnamon and sugar on them! It was like a sugar cookie with no sugar on it. If you're... More

Nothing any of the us got here was bad! I certainly couldn't complain about the prices and everyone was very nice about us standing there for 5 minutes prior to ordering and 5 minutes afterwards as we walked around taking pictures! I think we each walked away with 3+ cookies… to share of course ;)

Stopped in for coffee and grabbed some gingerbread cookies while we were there. Huge cookie for around $2 and they tasted amazing. They must had been freshly baked. Very friendly staff. Overall a great place to drop in to.

We stopped in for lunch. Two wraps and 2 salads are offered, $5.95 wrap only or $6.95 with salad. Today's salads were Chicken Tarragon and Chicken Pasta. Ordered the Ham & Cheese wrap which is grilled. Lots of ham, lots of cheese, it was cut in half and could have easily been shared. The Chicken Pasta salad was good. Website... More

Great coffee in Leavenworth, and the frigging cinnamon rolls are melt in your mouth perfect! Service was friendly and just a great atmosphere to sit and watch the morning happen in Leavenworth

We always stop in here on our annual visits and we are never disappointed. Last year we noticed that there are more GF options available, which is fantastic for my GF hubby! :)

The coffee was excellent, but the pastries and charming staff is what blew us away. Kris, our server, welcomed us like regulars and, when she discovered it was our first visit, gave a fun tour of the restaurant and extensive offerings. Wow! Wish there was a Gingerbread Factory in my neighborhood.

This place is more likely known for its baked goods, but we stopped in for a quick cup of coffee before heading elsewhere for a full breakfast. The service at the coffee bar was slow--likely because the barista was also taking food orders and acting as cashier. There were 3 or 4 other people working there, so it wasn't clear... More

I work in a bakery & I have to say that this is the best gingerbread & gingerbread cookies I've had! Wonderful & very friendly staff! The owner of the Gingerbread Factory also owns Andreas Keller, a fabulous German restaurant also in Leavenworth. Don't miss either place!
