Open at 8am. Staff was very nice and helpful, even when training a new person. Yummy drinks and gingerbread cookies.

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!

Stopped in for cookies on our last visit to Leavenworth. These are the best gingerbread cookies! We had other options, but based on the name of the place we figured this was the way to go and so happy we had them! Also bought a peanut butter cookies with some frosting, etc. . . .super delicious. Will stop here again... More

The reviews here mention the espresso drinks... I have to say the lattes are outstanding. The cookies are great too :).

My hubby and I bought several cookies there, very delicious. The guy was preparing a new batch in front of us which was nice to see as well. Can not say anything about the food though, but the place looked really nice with a lot of cool looking gingerbread houses. I was happy to stop by.

We were delighted to find this special spot early this morning...our granddaughter was looking for things to see in Leavenworth...we found the staff personable, friendly and interesting! The craftsmanship was amazing and the "treats" we're scrumptious!! Espresso was delightful as we're the two cider drinks...I could see this spot as addicting if we lived closer!!

This is a go-to place for my husband and I before we start our day. We must indulge in their lattes to start. Of course, no cup of coffee would be complete without a little sweet indulgence especially while they are baking fresh gingerbread. The iced cookies and gingerbread are divine. If the weather is not too cold outside, then... More
