Lefevre Street Bakery & Cafe


The Lefevre Street Bakery & Cafe is a huge hit in a sleepy little town. Medical Lake Washington moves at a little slower pace than most other communities and the people of Medical Lake like it that way. The recession of almost a decade ago had a pretty hard impact on Medical Lake and recovery has been slow. The excitement created by the opening of the Lefevre Street Bakery & Cafe is exactly what this town needed.

Living in this community, I know and talk to a lot of people here. I have yet to hear any negative comments about the new bakery cafe. All I hear are very enthusiastic thumbs up. The word is spreading outside the Medical Lake community too. Do a search on "Lefevre Street Bakery & Cafe" and all you see is 5 star reviews. Even the media has nothing but good things to say.

What is all this stir about? It’s about the food. The Lefevre Street Bakery & Cafe consistently serves some of the best baked goods I have ever tasted. The sticky buns, cinnamon rolls and fruit filled pastries are out of this world good, but then you try the carrot cake and the brownies, wow! And it's not just about the sweets, their savory breakfast sandwiches are wonderful as well. Ok, I guess I don't really know if it gets any better than this, but it doesn't need to.

All this baking and eating of good food takes place in this cute little country bakery where friendly people make you feel like they are welcoming you into their home. When Kevin and Brenda Gerhart opened the Petit Chat Bakery in the Whitworth area of north Spokane they got it right. When they opened the Lefevre Street Bakery & Cafe in Medical Lake, they got it even better.

After tormenting the town of Medical Lake with anticipation for nearly a year while they did a major remodel on the old Chan&s Chinese Restaurant, the Lefevre Street Bakery opened May 25th of this year, and have enjoyed instant success. On Medical Lake Founder's Day, less than a month after opening, the bakery sold more than 400 of their giant cinnamon rolls.

Initially open only in the morning, they recently extended their hours to include lunch. Now they are open from 6:00am to 2:00pm seven days a week. The Lefevre Street Bakery Cafe is located at 123 S. Lefevre St. in Medical Lake.
