4 cookies, $10. 2 were peanut butter. If there was peanut butter in it, I sure couldn't taste it. The oatmeal & chocolate chip were pretty good. That was all I tried.

Heidi F, Owner at The Gingerbread Factory, responded to this review

Into everyone's life a little rain must fall. After literally years of hearing how wonderful our peanut butter cookies are, I was sad to hear that you couldn't tell there was any peanut butter in them. I know the recipe hasn't changed in over 25 years, except to add even more peanut butter to it by drizzling peanut butter over... More

Some heart shaped cookies made our little weekend getaway that much more romantic. Cheesy, but romantic. (the trip, not the cookies.)

We got 4 different kinds of cookies and all were great. I highly recommend the ginger oatmeal white chocolate cookie. Great ginger flavor. The cookies are a bit expensive but worth it as a treat.

I'm very glad you liked our cookies! Everything is baked right in our tiny bakery by our hard-working staff and our made-from-scratch recipes are tried and true. We also try to offer new taste treats often. It's hard work but very rewarding. Thanks for coming in and please come back soon! More

We met here twice with friends to sit with coffee and a treat and catch up on time since we saw each other last. We sampled several sweets and can suggest whole heartedly the cinnamon roll(enough for two people) and the raspberry scone topped wit raspberry sauce.

My son has been begging to go to this place since the hotel staff recommended it. We were not disappointed. It's a neat little place for a quick lunch, tea or coffee time. It has a cozy atmosphere and staff friendly. We tried some of the humongous cookies they have and they were all good!

If any town SHOULD have a Gingerbread house, it's Leavenworth. =) I love that we have this charming place--inside and out--to offer visitors and locals. The sweet treats are scrumptious, creative, and ample! (I bought a giant raspberry-white chocolate scone with this amazing but deadly raspberry sauce. I am glad I had someone with me to share it!).

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!
