Maybe just don't go - really good bakery items a bit pricey and worth it - your stomachs will be happy but your pants size will increase- lots of variety and all GOOD.

Met a friend here for lunch. Soup and salad combo is very reasonable and most of their lunches come with a small piece of carrot cake. Chicken and rice soup was great. The woman who took our order was not really friendly but did answer questions. Other staff were very friendly. They have a great selection of baked goods: cakes,... More

We walked in today for late breakfast, early lunch I guess. We are from out of town so when you come in you aren't sure how it works there. No one really points it out and there are no signs so it was confusing at first. The girl behind the counter seemed stressed but finally took our order. I got... More

Our group stopped in for lunch and took advantage of their lunch special. Cup of soup half sandwhich and a piece of cake for under 10 dollars. The place is small and their main focus in their bakery but it was good soup we had a good experience and I would recomend a stop in if your around.

Wagner's has been around forever. Everyone here knows their excellent reputation for specialty desserts. Order something for a special occasion or just for lunch. It's fun to sit at their tables and have a meeting - the aroma of cinnamon and coffee is intoxicating! Great place to feed your sweet tooth.

Always good. Twisted Turkey sandwich is full of flavor. The Cheddar Broccoli soup is nice and creamy. The Red Reuben sandwich on rye is what I'm eating. Pastrami,swiss, deli mustard, and red cabbage. Perfect balance of flavors. Each meal comes with a small piece of their delicious cake. I can't wait to try my daughter's BlackForest birthday cake tonight.

Great place for a traditional soup and sandwich. You get a piece of cake with your lunch too. Great bakery items.

One of few places to go for traditional European (particularly German) baked goods, although they carry much more. The have a huge variety of pastries. Their cinnamon bread has the most cinnamon of any I've ever had - it's so good I eat it plain - it is especially good toasted. Have eaten at the cafe a few times, nothing... More

I have always gotten my "Important" cakes or bakery items from Wagners for as long as I have lived in Olympia (40 years)... They are the best!!!
