Gideon’s Bakehouse opened on the eve of Christmas Eve.
Slightly gothic and just a tad creepy – but in a fun way – Gideon’s started with one guy baking and delivering cookies from his home in Orlando’s College Park neighborhood. Now with 100 employees, Gideon’s has a presence that will welcome the world at Disney Springs.
The store serves huge cookies at $6 a pop. Each is nearly a half-pound. The store offers five permanent varieties together with seasonal offerings. For Christmastime, Gideon’s is serving up Santa’s White Christmas and the Cookie vom Krampus – which is a cookie where chocolate chips meet Andies mints.
I personally tried the Classic Chocolate Chip, the Cookie vom Krampus, and the Coffee Cake cookie. They all lived up to the hype – sweet, moist, and delicious.
In addition to cookies, the location serves cakes and coffee.
When I visited, the small store was using Disney’s virtual queue system. The wait time was 100 minutes, but I was able to visit other locations and then enter the shop with a very small wait.
Let’s take a look:
