Great treats

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... read 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.

This is a great Bakery and a must while in Winthrop! If you're look for just great coffee, that's at Blue Star in Twisp..:)

Cute little place, new owners, so it may be different now, but excellent coffee, quiche, sandwhiches, drinks, snacks, cookies, etc. Still, it's not as good as Cinnamon Twisp Pastries, in Twisp...but I like it if I'm in Winthrop.

We are regular visitors. Don't miss out on the coffee, pizza, and baked goods. The only problem is choosing from among all the glorious goodies. Start with a slice of pizza, save room for at least 2 baked sweets, and finish with an espresso.

The Rocking Horse Bakery is located on the main street in Winthrop. They serve good coffee, pastries and sandwiches. The coffee is good but it tends to be dark roasted which my wife does not prefer. Their sandwiches are good, especially their breakfast sandwich. We also appreciated that they usually include a vegetarian selection.

Prior to our travel to Winthrop, I had read about the cafe and was on my list to visit. The cafe was as expected and even better. The interiors are cosy and well designed. Enough seatings and the service is quite good. On this day the Barista was real good ( sorry did not get her name) and the coffees... More

I love this place great atmospher, lots of room to meet with friends, good to great food. Nice management and you could stay all day and not feel like they wanted you to get out. Free internet and places to do that with secure feeling.

Everyone knows everyone in this quaint little town. Every time someone would walk in they would be greeted with a warm hello and followed by questions of what they have been up to and what their plans are. It was fun to sit and people watch. Grab a toasted bagel and a cup of coffee/cocoa and grab a corner table.
