Lander, WY | Wildflour Bakery

On your way to Yellowstone, stop at Wildflour Bakery for a fresh bagel. Take along an oversized “clump” of Exploding Cheese Bread or a breakfast sandwich.

Start your day in Yellowstone Country off right with a trip to Wildflour Bakery. Located at 545 Main Street in Lander, Wyoming, the southeast gateway to Yellowstone Park, Wildflour Bakery is an awesome “scratch bakery.” Everything is made from scratch and baked fresh daily. You can’t beat their bagels and other unique baked goods! And believe us, we know. The Yellowstone International staff often starts its day with a run to Wildflour.

On any day, enjoy 15 different bagel flavors, which are great plain or topped with one of 10 different flavors of cream cheese spreads. The bagels also make great breakfast and lunch-time sandwiches. For those looking to eat a heartier breakfast and sightsee right through lunch, try the breakfast bagel, complete with egg and bacon or ham on your favorite bagel.

One of our favorite things to buy from Wildflour is their “Exploding Cheese Bread.” The name says it all. Enjoy soft, fresh-baked bread that is exploding with cheese and chives, cheese and jalapenos, cheese and pepperonis, or just lots of cheese. Exploding Cheese Bread is a meal on its own, or make a sandwich out of it by adding your favorite deli cuts.

Muffins, cookies and cinnamon rolls are baked and offered for sale daily, along with 18 varieties of fresh bread. On Thursdays, enjoy Wildflour’s delicious coffee cakes—another personal favorite of ours—and on Saturdays, indulge in cream cheese-filled cinnamon rolls. Trust us, it doesn’t get any better than this if you’re looking for great baked goods!

Daily lunch specials include homemade soups, salad and sandwiches. Eat in or carry out.

And if that’s not enough, you can get your caffeine, too! Wildflour Bakery has a full-line espresso bar, complete with hot and cold drinks.
