We have been going here for years for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food is always very good. The desserts and cakes are to die for! Tracy, the owner, is a delight and always greets her guests with a smile and a "thank you" for joining us. We will continue to visit The Gingerbread House as long as we can.

This is a family favorite. It's becoming a tradition to bring my mom every time she comes to visit. Try to go on an off time it gets rather busy.

This is a very quaint place, and if you're near New Berlin you've got to try it. They serve great coffees, wine and excellent sweets, along with a regular menu.

I took an out-of-town girlfriend to The Gingerbread House for a light Saturday evening dinner and to our surprise that is exactly what we received. The menu has a wide variety of items, but we chose the small, 10" pizza which came with a side salad. The salad was very fresh and the pizza was perfect. All the desserts looked... More

The restaurant was packed as it was sweetest day! But we just stopped in to get some goodies for a family event. We had the challenge of getting gluten free and soy free desserts. The counter staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about the ingredients in their dessert selections and we were able to get treats for everyone including those... More

One of my favorites! An old farmhouse, charming, excellent food and coffee. If it's nice outside, sit on the front porch. They have chickens and geese, some will even greet you! The best pastries and desserts.

Nice place to have lunch but be prepared to wait. This place is popular with the locals. Parking can be a challenge. If you park on the road it can be a bit dangerous as cars zip by at 40mph

Tried to meet a friend here today for breakfast, unfortunately they only serve breakfast on the weekends. They do serve pricey coffees, smoothies, and other drinks as well as some very large bakery items. Ironically we had both looked at the menu online previously and hadn't seen where they stated that they didn't serve breakfast during the week...bummer. Both of... More

This place was cozy but small. They have great desserts and pizza is not bad. It has a cute country house style with live chickens in the back for children to feed. The place has a nice unique touch.
