This place is a company favorite for quick sit down lunches. I love their Reuben but many great options. The bakery is over the top though. Great cakes, pies, and breads. Everything I have gotten is authentic European and very tasty.

As soon as I walked in, the smell of ambrosia hit my nose. This wonderful European-style bakery has more delicious pastry choices than one could eat in a month. There were also a number of delicious sandwich choices.

Wagner's is a great bakery. Very consistent Carrot cake is fabulous BUT it never changes! Same items as 25 years ago. Not my first choice when I think of a bakery. They need to expand their horizons, move into the new century!

We opted to check out Wagner’s on a family vacation while staying five nights across the street. Donuts were very good; day two we tried the breakfast croissant sandwiches which were good - amazingly flaky croissants and very generous portions. Sandwich comes with a “treat”...More

Rudy Wagner is the owner/founder and he won a rare "Living Legends" award from Thurston County, his shop is so well known and liked. Great place, the bakery smells are wonderful.

Cakes here are wonderful, and the chocolate eclairs are the best ever. You can't go wrong with a wedding cake from Wagners. Lunches are good, but I go there for treats.
