Who we are

The Blue Gate Bakery is an Amish Bakery located in Shipshewana, the heart of Indiana's Amish Country. In the mid 1980's, Mel Riegsecker opened the Blue Gate Restaurant (formerly Der Strudel Haus). It had 50 seats and one dining room. After 20 years, the old Blue Gate Restaurant & Sweet Shoppe were torn down and a new state-of-the-art facility was erected.

The new Blue Gate Restaurant has 1,200 seats, seven dining rooms, a theater and, of course, a fully-functional bakery!

From fresh doughnuts & pastries to cookies & bars to delicious pies, the Blue Gate Bakery has something sweet for everyone.

All of your Blue Gate Bakery favorites are now available online! Make sure you don't leave before visiting our Online Store.
