Wagner's Bakery is a well respected Olympia location that happens to be nearby to the state Capitol. Whether you desire a quick breakfast or lunch or just a quick sweet, Wagner's delivers. Parking is limited in the area so plan accordingly. Grab a sweet then go walk around the Capitol campus to burn off the calories.

Great local establishment near the state capital to grab a donut or a pastries and enjoy a cup of tea or a cup of coffee. Eat in or take it to go..Worth the visit if you're in Olympia.

We meet friends there for coffee and a "treat ". Coffee is ok but the pastries are the best in town. Great selection from donuts to pie to cakes.

I recently had breakfast here and it was very good. I had a breakfast sandwich with egg and ham. I also had a good latte. I would also recommend Wagner's for cakes when you have a special event. My daughter purchased a yule log cake for Christmas and it was wonderful. We often get birthday cakes here too.

Wagner's was established in 1938. Impressive. We met friends at Wagner's European Bakery & Cafe on a Monday at 11:00 a.m. We each got a sandwich - three of us from the deli case of prepared sandwiches and one ordered a sandwich from the menu board. Three of us had latte's. Later we got bakery goods: two frosted cookies, an... More

Don't wait until the last minute. Call in advance if you want one of their specialty items. I buy from them when friends visit from outside the "City" just to show our flavor.

When I enter this Old-World Style Bakery. I am immediately assailed with all the aromas one dreams of experiencing when entering a bakery. The pastry case is always full of the usual treats aloing with something much more special. The breads are baked on premise, and for those like myself, the cinnamon swirl bread makes for wonderful toast in the... More

Wagner's has an array of baked goods that cannot be found elsewhere in Olympia. It is a treat to come here and be spoiled.

A wonderful place in Olympia to stop in for a sandwich, soup, and/or a salad. The baked goods are beautiful and quite tasty. We often choose to go after church Sunday morning for a waffle or lunch. Very good coffee (extremely important to me) and the staff behind the counter is always knowledgeable and helpful in making selections.
