“Great German bakery in the heart of Olympia”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

Who knew that there is a great German bakery in Olympia. I didn't and I live 25 miles away in Tacoma. This is the real deal. this was my first visit but it won't be the last. Real German pastries and (gasp) real european tortes. Not exactly cheap but well worth the price of admission. They also have day old breads and pastries @ very affordable prices. So by all means go. I went to the downtown location on Capitol way but their website states they now have a 2nd location on Pacific. The Capital way location stays open later.

“Finger linking good”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We have a small satellite location of Wagners in our office building. They always have the most decidant, rich desserts that make your mouth salivate the minute you come into the building. Flaky crusted pies, ooey gooey donuts and cinnamon swirl bread that is awesome toasted with butter.

“Pastries great, food only OK”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

I wanted to like this place more, as the atmosphere was cozy and inviting, and the aroma grand. We ordered sandwiches for lunch - the llittle cake that came with that sandwiches was wonderful, but the sandwiches were just OK (we had the veggie and the triple decker grilled cheese, which is three slices of BREAD, not cheese...too much bread, not enuf cheese). Bought more pastries to take with us - they are very good, but not enough to make it a five star performance. Maybe other sandwiches or soup would be a better choice. Next time, maybe.

Reviewed December 28, 2012

So many excellent, delicious bakery items, the cinnamon bread is amazingly spicy and good, black forest cake and other cakes, tarts, available. There is a deli where you can order lunch and have it
there in a nice atmosphere.

“Great quality, service, value”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

I make a point to stop here whenever passing by Olympia. The selection quality and price of their baked goods are something Seattle sorely needs. They have awesome cinnamon rolls, almond crescents, muffins, doughnuts, breads, etc. They also have day-olds on sale for incredible prices (like 2 breads for $4 or bag of muffins for $2). I haven't tried the sandwiches or prepared foods, but I'm content with the pastries and breads. The whole grain breads are also very European authentic. My wife is European and really liked this place. The servers all seem very helpful and going out of their way to make your visit pleasant.
