Wagners is an Olympia treasure. We have enjoyed eating there for 30 years. The quality of food has remained excellent.

I've eaten there for years. The sandwiches are good and desserts excellent. You can't go wrong for lunch or a business meeting.

We stop for lunch about once a week. Nice specials, most sandwiches made up as ordered. Soups are always good. Coffee is excellent and you get a small slice of great carrot cake with your lunch. Mostly sandwiches, average salads available, good potato salad, etc. Specialty coffee drinks available. Attached bakery is excellent. Nice selection of cakes, cookies and other... More

Been going there for years. Literally, back to the early 60's when I started working in Olympia after attending business college. In addition to the yummy bakery, they have a deli where you can get sandwiches, soup, salads and more. Plus a cute seating area which fills up fast during lunchtime. So try to go earlier or later but GO!

Hands down the best cinnamon bread I have ever had. I have travel across the world but always look forward to coming back home and getting their cinnamon bread. Not only is it good as toast but makes for the best French toast.

This bakery has the best pastries in town and their cinnamon bread is wonderful! It used to just be a bakery but now they also have a deli that's very good for lunch. They do special order desserts for big or small events. I recommend the Black Forest Torte - chocolate cake, whipped cream, cherries - it's fabulous. A whole... More

This establishment is the closest thing Olympia has to an old world Bakery. It will satisfy all cravings you might have that can come forth from a warm oven not to mention the combination factor of a deli to expand on what your senses demand. Satisfaction you can expect!

Whenever I am in Olympia I stop at the Farmers Market and head straight to Wagners and pick up a couple loaves of their cinnamon bread. It is the best. Makes great French toast.

Wagner's rightly is known as a really good local bakery. The smells are great and the look of the pastries is tempting. However, that is not all there is to Wagner's. It is also a good place to get a breakfast on a Sunday morning. Ordering is simple and the food is good to excellent. Even with a small child... More
