Rogers Bakery and Café has been a fixture in College Place, Washington for over 50 years. Started in 1962 by Russell and Ruth Rogers, the business became famous for its maple bars and apple fritters. Russell ran the operation as head baker until 1994 when he retired. The operation continued under his son, Randy, and eventually in 2002 Lenny and Kelli Leen purchased it. Their son, Colby, is now the head baker and manager.
In February of 2010 the building was destroyed by fire but within a year was reopened. Painted with warm golds, greens and purples, the new atmosphere brought a new flavor to the business but kept the same recipes the bakery has been famous for.
To this day, customers come in with memories of the 10 cent maple bars.
We hope that you come down soon and enjoy a maple bar, fritter, or homemade sandwich!
