This is an outstanding German bakery. Everything is fresh and tastes great. My only complaint is in the title of this review. I gain 5 pounds just walking in the front door. We've been there many times over the years. The wedding cake for our daughter's wedding was made by them. That was great.

Their baked goods look wonderful but are very pricy. The german cheese cake tastes like a block of Philadelphia which was especially disappointing as Germans are known for their superp cheese cakes and I was relly really looking forward to that delight. The staff is very friendly. The seating area leaves much to be desired for, looks out dated, almost... More

I always buy my husband a German Chocolare cake at Wagner's for his birthday. He's a connoisseur and thinks Wagner's is the best. We also love their cinnamon bread. The coconut cream pie we bought was only so-so.

Delicious soup and dessert. Location is an easy walk from down town and is very close to the capital campus. Parking can be challenging.

Wagner's is one of the best bakeries in Olympia, Tumwater or Lacey! You need to stop in for your sugar fix and coffee needs. You will not be disappointed with any sweet items they offer. You can also step to the food side and check out their menu.

Wagner's has a wide variety of baked goods - gorgeous cakes made to order. Their lunches are very good and come with a small baked treat as well. We use Wagner's for lunch and when we need something extra-special.

We many times rely on Wagners for special cakes or desserts for special occasions. But they are also good for just dropping by for a dessert and a some coffee. I particularly like their Marizpan Horns. Their sandwiches and soups are good too. All in all I would call Wagner's an Olympia institution for bakery items. I don't think you... More
