“An Amish bakery specializing in a large array of delicious home baked desserts and candies, deli meats and natural cheeses, as well as some crafts, such as hand loomed woven rugs and Amish dolls. Awesome pastoral setting! A wide variety of everything - all made from scratch. Their Amish team is eager to assist you, and may put on 2 lbs by simply smelling the delicious aromas of their fresh baked goods (particularly their homemade glazed donuts - you will NEVER be the same again!) ”

“This place is an amazing spot for breakfast or lunch. Fresh food at reasonable prices and amazing baked goods and desserts. Especially the pies and cakes. One of the only places in town to get a decent coffee. It gets BUSY, so go early or off peak hours. They have cheap bagel sandwiches all day and local craft beer on tap. ”

A number 2 (roast beef with Swiss & horseradish mayo) is my go-to order...sometimes with a lemon square!Their crab cakes are delicious but they sell out of them often. Their chicken salad is tasty & I almost always keep some in the fridge. The also sell LivePure smoothies that are SO good. Pick up some of their smoothie cubes to take home with you too! ”
