Class Act.

Really nice outdoor seating area in the back. Friendly staff. A really nice atmosphere overall and awesome food. Took a loaf of stehekin bread and sourdough home with me. I was really impressed with its character.

I was trying to plan a 70th Birthday for my husband. Knowing my husband's love of cinnamon rolls, I walked down to the Rocking Horse at 6:30 am (when they open) to be told that they wouldn't have them out - or the pecan sticky buns or the coffee cake until after 8:30 am? Nowhere on their website does it... More

Coffee, breakfast sandwiches, and ambience. What's not to like? We met some cross-country bicyclists there.

Our daily morning coffee and baked items before heading out on a hike! Love the decor and baristas always nice. Maybe next time we will stay long enough to actually SIT in the shop rather than just run off... but at least I managed to snap some photos of their great decorations.

Coffee was good and the homemade baking was excellent we would stop there again. We were only in the area for one night.

The espresso is good - it seems to have a touch of Ethiopian or something, not my favorite as I'm an Italian roast purist - but not perfect. Crema lacking on the espresso, but good enough for an adventure day in Winthrop. There are jugs os 1/2 and 1/2, milk, soy, whatever. Snacks to hold you over: pastries, pizza, and... More

Stopped here for a quick breakfast sandwich early morning. In addition to the normal bakery fare, they have a good selection of breakfast sandwiches made with local ingredients and a choice of bagel or biscuit. Coffees and lattes, too. Fast and friendly service.

Stopped in for coffee and treats during the very busy '49ers celebration. There was a line, but service was quick and efficient (much faster than I expected with a line almost out the door). The pastries were delicious. The coffee a little stronger than I wanted, but hey, they're used to those Seattleites who love their strong coffee! Ha! We... More

This is not a doughnut shop if that is your taste. Cinnamon rolls and croissants is more the order of the day here with espresso and the like. The locals come here as well as the tourists. Rivals the Cinnamon Bakery in Twisp. Tough choice which to go to.

Great people watching. Locals swinging in for coffee & treat. Skiers in to re-fuel. Interesting decor & good service.
