Loved the Cookie

Being from the Pacific Northwest, it was coffee time. Where to go? Gingerbread sounded good. We stopped by for coffee and an iced gingerbread cookie. Would we go again? Yes! I wish I had taken a few of those cookies with me. One was not enough!

This is a cute little shop that specializes in gingerbread, but also serves lunch. The chicken Caesar wrap sandwich I had was excellent,with crisp lettuce and fresh chicken, as was the vegetable beef soup. My husband praised his chicken curry wrap. We ate outside on a small patio. There was seating on a lawn as well.

Great place to visit. Skip your Starbucks or other chain coffee and come here. People are friendly and food is great. Yesterday I had a fresh cinnamon bun (bigger than my hand) and espresso for under 5 dollars and was worth every cent. Such a cool place to visit and a must when in town. Love this place

spent $8.00 for two waters basically because our cookies were so bad that we threw them away!!!! If you're going to charge $3 for a cookie, it better be awesome...

You owe it to yourself to stop by and get at least 1 cooking. The ginger snaps were especially good!

Wife and I visited here for the day. Saw the sites and ate lunch. After walking around to burn off some food, we had cravings for sweets. This looked like the perfect ace and it was. We had two iced coffees and two cookies. Sat on the porch enjoyed our treats and the nice sunny day.

Stopped by this place after a chilly hike down by the river. My son had a gingerbread cookie, I had peanut butter, and my mom had the oatmeal raisin cookie. We divided them up and shared. They were all delicious and the staff was very friendly. We will have to return tomorrow to get some treats before we head home.... More

We stopped by the Gingerbread Factory on our first full day in Leavenworth. We wanted to grab some coffee and cookies for a morning pick-me-up.

We enjoyed our gingerbread, expected a little more knowledge and fun. It was very slow when we went and there was no snow so we were looking for more entertainment for the 6 kiddos. It was a fun treat and the food and coffee was great
