We couldn't not stop at this place on a recent trip to Leavenworth! The building is shaped like a gingerbread house! We were a little overwhelmed with the amount of delicious baked goods on display, but finally decided on a German chocolate cookie and one of the frosted sugar varieties.

We wanted somewhere to have a good coffee and a light bite to eat for breakfast - but not a full breakfast. We had walked past this place the day before and it had real character from the outside. You can watch the chef make/bake/decorate the cookies and cakes in the kitchen behind the counter. The coffee was a little... More

Thank you for your review of our homegrown bakery - I'm so happy you loved our baked goods! I'm very sorry you didn't think your coffee tasted special. We use locally roasted beans that we grind right before brewing, literally the best we can get. I will check into it, however, because we want to be the best we can... More

We loved their cinnamon rolls so much we never got around to ordering anything else. The staff was always very pleasant and everything there looked great but when you find something you like its hard to try other things.

I'm so glad you loved our cinnamon roll! Even as the owner I have a hard time knowing what to choose, so I get something different every day :). Thanks for sharing your opinion - it means a lot to know that you enjoyed it, and we hope to see you again soon! More

Stopped in for a light lunch and a cookie. The Keller Wrap was so very good! Loved the heavy handed mustard:) And the ginger cookies was good also!

Thank you for your nice comments! I'm glad you liked our Andreas Keller mustard, which is available for purchase online both at the Gingerbread Factory website and Andreas Keller Restaurant's website. We've been making it for over 25 years! I'm glad you liked the cookies, too, and that you will visit us again soon. More

We stopped by at 6 pm one night not realizing all the stores close by 6 pm. We came back the last day we spent in Leavenworth around 2 pm.

Thank you very much for visiting our bakery and rating us so highly! I'm glad you liked your heart-shaped raspberry "Sweetheart" cookie. It is similar to a Linzer, but with no nuts. Our gingerbread is a many-years old recipe which is not necessarily identical to the gingerbread or "Lebkuchen" in Strasbourg, but it has a huge following in its own... More

Went in for breakfast. Line was nearly out the door, but the service was prompt and the staff friendly. Enjoyed looking at all of the cookies while waiting. My breakfast wrap was really good, very flavorful. My husband declared the cinnamon roll "fine" but I thought it was really good -- light, not too sweet or cinnamony.

I'm so glad you loved our raspberry scone and that you felt we offer lots of items for special dietary needs. We do offer vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free options because we know that many people on restricted diets want something yummy to enjoy, too! Thanks for noticing and for your encouragement! More
