This bakery has good espresso but only so-so service. The barista who made my drink might have just been having an off day - who knows. The person who took my order didn’t seem too thrilled to be working. Plenty of seating throughout the place...More

Thank you for your candid review. I apologize if you felt that our service was below your expectation. If this was a recent visit, we have been in the process of training a couple of new staff members, so perhaps they were still in the...More

The food is very good. No doubt the best bakery in town as witnessed by the crowds. Go early and be prepared to wait. Their breakfast sandwiches must be very good but we would not know as even when we got there at 830AM they...More

It is located on the main street and by the river. It is also close to the museum. Very nice and friendly staff.

We were heading out to hike and wanted something fast and filling-had read this was a good place-they make breakfast sandwiches ahead of the rush-very smart-they were out of our 1'st choice but we still an excellent selection to choose from.

Winthrop is a small town with limited options. The Blueberry muffins and coffee were good. The herbal tea was good but there are limited options.

We were visiting Winthrop for a long weekend and tried out all the coffee shops. Rocking Horse was our favorite. In addition to coffee, they have a few options for food too. Right downtown on the main street.

Decent food, below average coffee. The decor was cute. Quiche Lorraine was good and my husband's cinnamon roll was great.More

Very nice environment to sit and socialize. The selection of goods in the bakery case is nothing special. Staff members seem checked out and not as friendly as other establishments of this type. Coffee is average.

I went to Winthrop after hiking Maple Pass Loop in North Cascades just 2 days ago. I found Rocking Horse Bakery when I searched for espresso on Google maps. I was very nicely surprised. I enjoyed the coffee that I ordered. It was very good....More
