Atmosphere comparison

Gideon’s Bakehouse is not your average bakery. It has an incredibly distinct look and backstorywith a setting that involves a fictional “purveyor of rare books and antiquities” named Jonathan Lindworm, who previously “owned” this space. You might feel like you’re stepping into a Tim Burton movie!

Gideon’s Bakehouse

Gideon’s is filled with books, art, and antiquities from the Victorian era, and you may spot some curiosities around the bakery. There are also portraits of distinct characters with stories of their own!

Gideon’s Characters

You order at the counter in Gideon’s, and you won’t find any seating inside. There’s no designated seating outside eitheralthough you can probably find a spot around Disney Springs to sit and enjoy your cookie.

And if you’ve ever visited Gideon’s, you’ll know that the bakehouse has frequently looooong lines. You have to bring your patience for a Gideon’s visit!

Now over at Everglazed, it kinda looks like another familiar donut shop you probably know. You might have even walked past this spot without stepping inside.

Inside, you’ll see a case of donuts, and you can order right at the counter.

the Chocolate Chip Key Lime Pie Cookie was one of the special monthly limited edition flavors that we got to try back in July.

Just look at those chips!

Cake slices are $9 each at Gideon’s, and the core flavor is the True Red Velvet. There’s also a Daily Chocolate Cake that changes daily, a Daily Double Frosted Cake with rotating flavors, and a Secret Slice that randomly pops up AND you need a password to buy it!

For $9, you get quite a lot of cake for your money. Just look at this gigantic slice of Andes Mint Cookies & Cream Cake that was a daily chocolate cake slice!

We’ll take some cake with our frosting, we guess!

And don’t forget the sides either, like these Spicy Fries for $7topped with Buffalo seasoning, Scallions and spicy Mayo.

Gideon’s may have some incredible sweets, but Everglazed has sweet AND savory options for those days when you want both some salty tastes too.

REVIEW: We tried more donuts and breakfast sammies at Everglazed!
