Winkler Bakery always has the fresh smells of bread, pastries, and cakes to delight the senses. My wife and I ordered sugar cakes, lemon, and sugar cookies. The service was friendly and professional. We highly recommend Winkler Bakery to everyone.

Great way to spend time with your family learning the way this bakery bakes. They still bake the way they did in late 1700’s. The breads and cookies are awesome.

We arrived at the bakery before 11:00 am. We had a nice conversation with the baker and his assistant and learned quite a bit about the bakery in 1800. I was disappointed that they were in the process of heating the oven and had not...More

When you walk through the front door of the Winkler Bakery you have stepped back in time to a commercial bakery of the 1700's. It is a walk worth taking and very educational for children.
