“CAREFULLY CRAFTED — DREADFULLY DELICIOUS”
A most unique bakeshop has just arrived in the Disney Springs neighborhood… Gideon’s Bakehouse. Its popularity has been explosive! Featuring vintage desserts… extraordinary cookies and cakes… all offered in a warm Victorian ambience. Their specialty? Small batch, 100% handmade cookies… each cookie weighing in at nearly a half pound!
All baked goods at Gideon’s Bakehouse are scratch-made daily, cutting no corners, putting handmade detail into each of their creations. Taking over 20 hours to prepare each of their specialties, all are sold on a first come first serve basis (limit: 6 cookies per customer)… with Limited Edition offerings rarely lasting the day.
Gideon’s Bakehouse was recently voted “Best Chocolate Chip Cookie in Florida” by Delish, the national foodie website. Founder and sole owner, Steve Lewis, shares… “Gideon’s Bakehouse began in a home kitchen with one goal: to create an extraordinary Chocolate Chip Cookie. Fifteen years and thousands of tests later, the work was complete.” Seems they’ve more than succeeded.
A haunted bakery? That’s the vibe that the founder seeks to create. A lover of old books, Steve discovered a mysterious vintage cookbook dating back to 1898 filled with writings by someone named Gideon. This inspired him to build his bakehouse like an eerie Victorian bakery of that era, complete with gargoyles… plus a bit of Disney’s Haunted Mansion added to the mix.
The menu of offerings include a delectable variety of chocolate chip cookie flavors, like Cookies & Cream, Peanut Butter Crunch, Candied Walnut Chocolate Chip… plus Limited Editions like Coffee Toffee Chocolate Chip. Their buttery, crunchy Coffee Cake Cookie is offered each morning until sell out… perfectly paired with their Ginger Snap Cold Brew.
Beyond just cookies, Gideon’s Bakehouse features three-layer tall cakes loaded with buttercream icing… with flavors like Peanut Butter Chocolate, Andes Mint Cookies & Cream and True Red Velvet. Each day an off menu, chef’s creation Secret Slice is revealed on social media. Come in and give the special promoted password to receive your slice. Be aware… these sell out quickly!
“Our Cookie isn’t a product. It is a history, the sweet and the salty, the thrill of a first kiss, and the solitude of a heartbreak. Our desserts are emotional, personal, and we want to share our journey with you… It is an opportunity to create an experience to remember. That’s Gideon’s.”
