Putting this right out there, we don’t have a public phone number. Due to the excessive amount of requests asking for holds and stock levels we had to discontinue that access to keep our shop moving. With that said, we are pretty quick to answer your questions via email! Fill out our form here, your message will get filtered to the best person for the job and they will be in touch within 24 business hours!
Gideon’s Bakehouse opened just over 3 years ago on a budget of $800 and a single employee. We’ve pushed through some unbelievable challenges to keep up with our growth and are now ready to take our next big step. We’re happy to announce our second location is coming this year to Disney Springs® at Walt Disney World Resort. We’re a small team with a single owner and no partners or investors. We did this purely on our own steam fueled by you, our local community. This step is enormous, to say the least, but we’ve learned so much over the last few years, and we’re ready for this challenge. We’re proud to be a representative of the fantastic local food scene in Central Florida and look forward to chatting with visitors about our favorite parts of Orlando. We hope to have your support on this evolution of the Gideon’s experience. So what can you expect? We would tell you more, but we’re nothing if not a little dark and mysterious. Stay tuned, and be sure to follow our social media for all the fun updates!
Preorder Pickups for this location will be unavailable until we find our groove.

It is fitting that Gideon’s Bakehouse has a history that lies in a book. Our location at Disney Springs, the beautiful old brick corner building adjacent to the bottling plant in The Landing, was uncovered to be the place of business for a curious bookseller. Research has discovered that the shop, named Lindwurm Books after its mysterious owner Jonathan Lindwurm, traded in rare books and antiques from all over the globe. Lindwurm arrived in St Augustine in 1866 when forced to leave his country after the fall of the Habsburg Empire. He made his way to the Town Center in search of thriving trade and quickly became the subject of gossip due to his uniquely stoic appearance and eccentric ways. Lindwurm was an antiquarian with a taste for rare books of alchemy and medicine. He was said to have the most extensive collection of occult books in the United States until he disappeared in the early 1900s, entering his ominous bookstore late one evening but was never seen departing.
To this day, all that remains of Jonathan Lindwurm’s story are the books that past through his hands and his photo. We were able to acquire the original daguerreotype and will return it to its original home, on display to all who enter. Gideon’s Bakehouse will pay tribute to the history of the building we occupy by returning it to its intended atmosphere, lining our walls with ancient books of knowledge placed on shelving that look as if they never left … perhaps like the owner.
