An array of bakery items that may astound even the most demanding. Sandwiches and meal fare quite good in a cafe setting. Great afternoon lunches and things for tomorrow's breakfast.

The best bakery in Olympia and possibly anywhere. Great friendly service and delicious sweets. Sausages and specials are always tops.

We ordered some box lunches for a family gathering. They were fantastic! Large, homeade sandwiches on freshly baked bread and a wonderful piece of carrot cake. I also ordered a breakfast to go for my kids. This is a bit pricey and slow, but the food is very, very good.

They always have great pastries - I have tried many and have never been disappointed . Service is always excellent too. You can have a great lunch there too. They will pack it to go or you can sit down and eat it there. My favorite is a 1/2 sandwich and a cup of soup. Their bread is always so... More

We stopped at Wagner's for a late lunch driving from Seattle on the way back to Portland. We ordered the tomato basil soup and the salad with hot grilled chicken. Both were served with bread and a square slice of carrot cake. We liked the food and would stop here again and definitely avoid Darby's Cafe. We did not have... More

Amazing bakery! We've had a tradition of birthday carrot cakes here for years! The boxed lunch sandwiches are very good as well!

All your favorites plus seasonal specialties. Lovely sandwiches on the freshest breads. Good coffee. Biggest problem is deciding what to pick.
