It seems like many people really love this place as it's always very busy. My husband and I thought it was ok. Average food and average service. There is nothing that pushes us to go there and even though we live close to it we dont go anymore. The parking lot fills quickly and then you have to park on... More

My daughter and I visited here for lunch on a Friday recently. We both had a soup and sandwich combo, and both of us enjoyed our choices. The food was good, fresh and a little out of the ordinary, but not so unusual that you were unsure about ordering it. Service was good. The only slight negative is that we... More

I have been a regular for brunch and fish fries for many years at this establishment. I went for brunch with my mother on April 23, 2017. We were seated at 12:30p.m. and our order was taken promptly. For approximately one hour, our order was not brought to our table. We were wondering what was going on because it was... More

I would first and foremost like to sincerely apoligize for the poor customer service that was displayed on your visit. As you have remarked that it is not typical and you have enjoyed being a long time customer previous. The situation can only be rectified by taking this matter and all customer service matters seriously as I do. I am... More

This not-your-run-of-the-mill restaurant is a wonderful change of pace from the everyday ho-hum ones. It is quaint, and sports an array of mismatched tables and chairs. Very unique. The food is tasty and they have specials everyday. My only problem with this restaurant is that the tables are way too close together. I don't know how the waitresses manage. They... More

Super cute farm house with really nice shop on 2nd floor to check out if you have to wait. Had a really awesome omelette. Next time must try out the unique coffee like Banana Mocha!

My husband and I go to the Gingerbread House every Sunday morning for breakfast. Occasionally there is a wait for up to a half hour, however, you may wait upstairs where they will keep you comfortable and ask if you would like to order a beverage while you are waiting for your table. The waitstaff is very professional and the... More

This little lunch space is always busy so the owners must be doing something right. Converted farmhouse serving soups and sandwiches on in-house made bread. Delightful baked goods are also for sale. Only downside is the cramped dining quarters. We were seated next to the ladies restroom door. Quite awkward. Lunch service was somewhat slow due perhaps to packed house

The Gingerbread House is just amazing!! Great service, great food and baked goods, fantastic pizza, super breakfasts and the best coffee! We love visiting this place, it's just outstanding!! The only negative is that is a bit small facility wise and there can often be long waits to enter. But IT'S TOTALLY WORTH IT!! AMAZING!!!
