Was very pleased with the food. Was a little disappointed that there wasn’t more ginger bread things. The gingerbread was excellent.The food and coffee was very good and at a very good price. I would recommend this place if you are in the area.

The Gingerbread House has such an assortment of sweets that all age groups will enjoy. The store also has coffee, cakes and pies which can all be enjoyed at the indoor or outdoor seating areas. The staff were friendly.
