Gideon’s Unique Bakery:

Gideon’s Bakehouse is not your average bakery. Upon entering the store, you are transported to a world of whimsical decor and fascinating antiquities from the Victorian era. The bakery’s backstory, as told on their website, is equally intriguing. Supposedly, the creator discovered an antique cookbook published in 1898, filled with notes and doodles from a young boy who dreamed of becoming a baker. The name “Gideon” was written at the back of the book, and thus, Gideon’s Bakehouse™ was born.

What to Order:

The bakery offers unique and massive cookies in flavors like Peanut Butter Cold-Brew and Pistachio Toffee Chocolate Chip. The three-layer cakes are also a must-try, with flavors such as Andes Mint Cookies & Cream Chocolate and Red Velvet with cream cheese frosting and candied walnuts. You can also enjoy the unique selection of iced drinks, including the Original Peanut Butter Iced Coffee. Additionally, the Coffee Cake Cookie, previously only available one month a year, can now be purchased every morning.

To satisfy your sweet tooth after dinner, Gideon’s also hosts a Hot Cookie Hour every evening. Plus, they are known for their secret Limited Edition desserts, available on a first come, first serve basis throughout the year, offering fun and unique surprises for their customers.

Worth the Wait:

Be prepared for a line and arrive early to get the best selection, as the limited edition items sell out quickly. But, the wait is worth it for the delicious treats at Gideon’s Bakehouse. Other reviewers, such as the Disney Food Blog, agree that the bakery is a must-visit. Note that the shop’s interior is small, so be prepared to wait in line, but the virtual queue system allows you to explore the area while you wait.
