I've been spoiled by great homemade gingerbread and gingerbread cookies all my life but this little shop really has a great gingerbread cookie recipe! I only got 2 giant cookies and found myself wishing I had bought a truckload to take home with me. Expect a line and the inside of the shop is small but the cookies are delicious!

There was a long line, so we thought it had to be good. Waited in the cold for 15 minutes. My entire family took one bite of the cookies and threw the rest away. They are not like my Grandma's gingerbread cookies. Won't make the mistake again.

I'm sorry you didn't like our gingerbread cookies. We have been receiving rave reviews about them for 28 years but everyone has their own preferences. We can understand that Grandma's cookies are always best! Best Wishes! More

I didn't think much of their gingerbread; rather flavorless, bland. Especially, for all the hype. Definitely not a ginger snap. Coffee was ok. Staff was very nice!

Thank you for your recent visit to The Gingerbread Factory! Our gingerbread is an old fashioned recipe that is quite pleasantly spicy and appeals to most of our customers, many of whom are obsessed with it! Modern baking styles are influenced by many cultures, and often far different than their original recipes. We enjoy experimenting with bolder flavor combinations, too,... More

This place is so cute and the goodies are delicious. We even got some gingerbread treats for our dogs. My son is heading up to Leavenworth this weekend and I told him that the Gingerbread Factory is a must-visit.

The cookies really are very yummy. If you're gonna stand in line for half an hour make sure you at least get a bunch to take home. I was a little surprised they charged for the containers (if you want a box of cookies you pay for the box) but the cookies are awesome. So glad we got some to... More
