In 1988, The Gingerbread Factory opened its doors in a small Bavarian-themed town called Leavenworth, nestled in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State.  What a perfect setting to craft traditional gingerbread cookies and houses!  The store quickly gained a reputation for scrumptious cookies, desserts, and of course, all things gingerbread! With its charming exterior designed to look like a real-life gingerbread house, The Gingerbread Factory became a "must see" tourist destination in Leavenworth. Our little house is currently being utilized as a production bakery for our new shop.

Today, we are no ordinary bakery. We are conveniently located on Front Street with tons of seating and an expanded menu to better serve you. Espresso, shakes, ice cream, cookies and a variety of foods (including gluten free!) are served in a fun, relaxing atmosphere with free WiFi! We bake throughout the day and the mouth-watering smells of freshly baked cookies, cinnamon rolls and scones will make you feel like you've just stepped into Grandma's house.

Our friendly staff can’t wait to welcome you! We are consistently rated one of the Top 10 Restaurants in Leavenworth by and were recently highlighted by Forbes Magazine, KING 5 News’ Evening show, TV Land and KOMO 4 News. Come and help us celebrate our 30th Anniversary!
