Thank you for letting us know about your experience, Marty! We'll certainly discuss this review with our front sales people. If you ordered our spinach and feta croissant, of course you were disappointed with the ham and Swiss croissant. It's delicious, believe me, but it...More

This is a must visit stop for travelers wanting a place to relax and have coffee. It is a popular destination for locals. There are sandwich selections, pasta salads, but the stars here are the bakery selections. The raspberry almond cupcakes disappear fast but you...More

Thank you for your review! We'd love to have you back for a visit so that you can have one of our sandwiches (made on our own freshly baked bread) while you watch the town go by through our windows. See you soon!

I had the Shepherds Hook (I believe...or tail). It was delicious and fresh and unique. I believe it may have had some apricot in the flavoring. Doggie friendly. Definitely check it out. The cupcakes, cookies and breads looked delicious!More

Don't miss the Sweet Shop when in Shepherdstown. Their bakery is the best. This is a college town so baked goods move quickly. Get there early!More
