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.

This was one of the highlights of our trip!! The ginger snap was delicious and the little petite gingerbread men/women were adorable and made our kids' day! What a cute little gem off the main street!

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. The coffee was just okay, but those cookies were HUGE and absolutely delicious! I wish I would have gotten a picture of the cookies, but after we had a little bite we practically inhaled them....

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

If you like ginger, you will LOVE the Gingerbread Factory. The quality of the ginger used is exceptional. My husband and I tried a skinny gingerbread man, a gingersnap, and a German Chocolate Ginger Cookie (GCGC). All were fresh, melted in your mouth, and made our taste buds pop. When I ordered the GCGC, the very friendly, very busy, thoughtful... More

We didn't try the espresso type beverages but they looked wonderful. We did however try a multitude of cookies while on our visit. The oatmeal white chocolate cookie was tasty. Snickerdoodles and ginger snaps are my favorites and theirs are excellent. The perfect amount of spices, soft but not too soft to fall apart. I didn't try the ginger snaps... More

People are friendly, place clean, gingerbread super good. Cute little spot. Has tables outside which is a nice break from the bustle of front street. Get some cookies! :)
