Rocking Horse Bakery is located in a historic building in the heart of downtown Winthrop, Washington, on the banks of the Methow and Chewuch Rivers.

Since opening in 2003, Rocking Horse is the place to meet friends, drink amazing coffee and enjoy food made with love and attention to detail. We serve a wide variety of wholesome, handmade baked goods such as pastries, cookies, cakes and breads, including gluten free items. Rocking Horse’s innovative kitchen staff create unique and interesting sandwiches, salads, pizza, and soups. In addition, we offer a full espresso bar and specialty drinks.  Our menu is ever evolving due to the ongoing dedication of our Bakers and Chefs to deliver only the finest quality food. We encourage guests to enjoy our wonderful collection of local historic artifacts (many on loan from the Shafer Museum) and take in the lovely views of the rivers. Rocking Horse Bakery is happy to provide WiFi for customers.
