I have been here on 2 occasions and find it to be delicious for Gluten Free Baked goods. The day I stopped in they had brownies, Sweet potato muffins and chocolate cookies. I bought the chocolate chip and muffin. Both were delicious with great textures. That is big in the GF WORLD. Prices were reasonable. They do serve breakfast and... More

As breakfast lovers, my husband and I often eat breakfast out. We found a super place for a quick, quiet breakfast in a unique setting. The bakery is open throughout, so you can watch the work going on as you shop and eat. My favorite is the egg and sausage on English Muffin. I've eaten English muffins all my life,... More

Really good food made from fresh and delicious ingredients. The service was top notch and the food is reasonably priced. The whole concept is friendly to... More

I love any and all of the places Ouita Michel is involved with. Food is always good at her eateries. This small bakery is in a very old school on the outskirts of the charming town of Midway. There are a few wooden tables set up and some old black and white photos of students from years past. Cookies, pies,... More

Just got done with Wallace Station for lunch. We had high expectations but was a bit disappointed. I guess when we go to a bakery we would see eclairs, donuts, variety of pies and cakes. Well they didn't have that. They had a few pies. No cakes, no donuts, no eclairs. BUT we did buy the corn cookie and it... More

I've had their cookies at Louisville area events and when we were driving through Midway we made sure to stop for breakfast, cookies and bread. The breakfast scones and bagel sandwiches were very good but it is the cookies that are a must for us. We have lived in the Louisville, KY area for 17 years now and in KY... More

Scones, cookies and more. Try the corn cookies - very tasty and unlike anything else. Everything is made from scratch.

Each year at Christmas I grab a quiche at The Midway School Bakery. They are worth their weight in gold. Just the best. Stop in for great cookies and muffins too.

We went at 3:30 and closing time is 4. The servers weren't very friendly. We purchased an oatmeal raisin and chocolate chip cookie. They were ok. They are big and cake like. I like a chewy cookie. They do have some local business food items-Weisenberger muffin mix, jellies, etc.
