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.

While spending a couple of days in Winthrop, I ate breakfast at the Rocking Horse Bakery both mornings. The lattes were the best I've ever experienced! The locally roasted coffee had such a good flavor and was so well served. Baked goods were varied and unique and tasty. Service was friendly and efficient. It was a great way to start... More

Ok I know this is a bakery and coffee house, but did you know they also serve pizza? Well neither did I until this past weekend. Wow, I am typically not a huge pizza fan, but the Rocking Horse Bakery makes the best pizza in the Methow Valley! If your in Winthrop WA and have the urge to get pizza,... More

Latte or fresh cup of coffee, served with the yummy blueberry coffee cake made breakfast special. The selection of baked muffins , scones, and breakfast sandwiches were great.

Thanks very much for your feedback. We apologize for your extended wait on your coffee drink. With the increased bakery traffic this summer, we have found ourselves in need of greater coffee brewing capacity, something that we are researching now. This should help avoid situations like this in the future. Steve More

After reading the great reviews we popped in for a quick bite. The two female staff behind the counter were busy engaged in their own private conversation then turned and started chirping "do you want food, do you want food" we ordered food and coffee. We went to get our coffee but the urns were empty. The male staff was... More

We stopped in on our first day of vacation and we were so glad we did. My husband is very picky about his Cinnamon Rolls and said this one was Fabulous!! I shared it with him and have to agree. Great Atmosphere and great pastries. Try it out, you wont be disappointed.
