Thank you, thank you, thank you to Mike and everyone at Gingerbread House Bakery for deciphering the recipe for our Mexican cream cheese wedding cake and reimagining it for Dave Larson's 40th birthday! Not only did the cake look and taste great, but the flavor was spot on. I have literally engaged with more than a dozen bakers over the... More

Gingerbread house has the very best doughnut holes I've ever eaten, period! They have a large variety of breads, cookies and doughnuts as well.

Gingerbread house not only serves up wonderful donuts and a large variety of other baked goods, but the family that owns the business are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. We have never been disappointed by any of the items we have purchased. They are my go-to spot for when I bring donuts into work. My husband... More

I love chocolate frosted doughnuts, and searched online for a good doughnut place while at Mayo's. I found the Gingerbread House and it was on my way to clinic the next morning. It satisfied my doughnut craving.

This place has delicious pastries and treats for everyone! The service was fast and friendly and the prices were great. Only complaint is the snug parking lot, but otherwise it is a great place.

Feels like a classic small town bakery. Everything is fresh and yummy...but their best treat is the donut holes.

Best local bakery in my opinion! The donut-holes are to die for but get there early because when they're gone, they're gone! You think a simple cake donut is dry? Not here! They also have great buns and breads. Super small place but worth the stop.

If you're looking for a great bakery, look no farther. The gingerbread house has the feel of a classic bakery, because it is one. They only take cash and are only open until 2:00pm, but the variety of breads and delicious pastries are second to none in Rochester.

We always get the cinnamon rolls they are fabulous! The gingerbread house isn't open Sundays and only takes cash, but is well worth the stop to the ATM!!!!
