Winter at Galena Bakehouse ❄

🎵 THE COLD NEVER BOTHERED ME ANYWAY 🎶

It's ski-bunny season, and if you love Galena, you already know that this historic town is beautiful in the winter. Chestnut Mountain is only minutes from the Bakehouse & Downtown Galena. The town offers fun winter events, like the Winter Carnival at Eagle Ridge, or the Chocolate Lovers Stroll. If you brought your sled, Grant Park is a fun spot to sled in the downtown area, just across the pedestrian bridge from the Bakehouse.⛷


TOP FIVE THINGS TO NOTE ABOUT THE BAKEHOUSE DURING THE WINTER

  1. Our hours may change! Our standard hours are Thursday - Monday 8am-3pm, we may adjust hours or close due to staffing or severe weather. We post updated hours on Google, Instagram, and Facebook. See additional notes on winter hours below.

  2. Expect consistency. As always, will continue to do what we love all winter long: BAKE. Expect Everything is homemade, just for today...even on slow days!

  3. Expect innovation. We are excited to try new menu items this winter, play around with offering specials & pastries, and even some new empanada flavors. We also love to experiment with our espresso & tea flavors. Come try a winter barista drink, like a Ginger Chai Latte, or a Honey Pistachio Latte.

  4. We still sellout during the winter. We try to predict slow days versus busy days and we will bake accordingly. Do you have a large order? Need your favorite flavor? Send us an email ahead of time. We will have our pre-order menu up soon! Info@thegalenabakehouse.com

  5. Pro-Tip! Yes, you can park in the parking lot next to the bakery. This is only to quickly pop in & out of the bakery. Please turn your flashers on. We are not responsible for any tickets that were incurred during Bakehouse visits.
