Many Disney fans know of Gideon’s Bakehouse. The sweet shop is pretty darn famous for selling their loaded cookies at The Polite Pig in Disney Springs. But soon, this award-winning bakery will be opening its very own location in The Landing, across from Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar at Disney Springs.
Gideon’s is best known for small-batch, handmade, almost half-pound cookies, as well as cakes. Gideon’s popular cookie at Disney Springs currently is the loaded chocolate chip cookie, but they also have unique flavors like Peanut Butter Crisp, Cookies & Cream and Pistachio Toffee Dark Chocolate.
According to Gideon’s own website:
Gideon’s Bakehouse opened just over 3 years ago on a budget of $800 and a single employee. We’ve pushed through some unbelievable challenges to keep up with our growth and are now ready to take our next big step. We’re happy to announce our second location is coming this year to Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort. We’re a small team with a single owner and no partners or investors. We did this purely on our own steam fueled by you, our local community. This step is enormous, to say the least, but we’ve learned so much over the last few years, and we’re ready for this challenge. We’re proud to be a representative of the fantastic local food scene in Central Florida and look forward to chatting with visitors about our favorite parts of Orlando. We hope to have your support on this evolution of the Gideon’s experience. So what can you expect? We would tell you more, but we’re nothing if not a little dark and mysterious. Stay tuned, and be sure to follow our social media for all the fun updates!
Gideon’s is expected to bring an expanded menu of cookie and cake slices to Disney Springs, plus a unique line of iced coffees, like the Original Peanut Butter Iced Coffee. Guests will be able to find their favorite cookie flavors along with new and limited editions offered during special daily releases. The ever-popular Coffee Cake Cookie (previously only available one month a year) will be on sale every morning, with a Hot Cookie Hour each evening. (Oh my god….what? Hot Cookie Hour? Sign me up….right now!)
“This opportunity is truly a dream come true and will allow us to flex all of our creative muscle in both desserts and décor. We’re passionate, inspired, and ready,” said Steve Lewis, owner and creator of Gideon’s Bakehouse.
Gideon’s Bakehouse is anticipating opening later this year.
