Brought bread, cupcakes and cookies home. They were fantastic. Wish this bakery was closer to home. I would be there all the time.

We dined at the Bavarian Inn and their delicious bread was from this bakery. So, of course, we had to buy some bread and goodies to take home!

Thank Robert S
Management response:

Thanks for the compliments, Robert! Just in case anyone wants a loaf of their own, the breads we bake for the Bavarian Inn are caraway rye and pumpernickel. More

This is a cozy and fun spot for morning pastry, coffee, sweets, pies and cakes. All fresh baked in house and sometimes very creative; read avocado and lime cheese cake...delicious! German Chocolate cupcakes, Pepperoni rolls, apple licorice, holiday cookies and THE BEST Stollen I have ever had; but don't tell my German Grandmother!

Thank OneGladiator
Management response:

Thanks for the compliments! We are certainly proud of our stollen, we put so much time and care into each loaf - there's really no other way to do it. Don't worry, we won't tell Grandma. I have to keep my stollen opinions from my german grandmother as well! - Carey (Operations Manager) More

Decided to stop for a tea and pastry. We selected two cupcakes, these were heavenly, very moist and flavorful. I also tried the Stollen, very good, but a bit too sweet for me. Stop by and watch the world go by while enjoying your tea and pastry.

We pulled into Shepherdstown this morning and found the sweet shop so we grabbed a couple coffees and cookies, grabbed a table and caught up on the news. They have a fairly extensive selection of baked goods and pretty good coffee as well. They also have both indoor and outdoor seating.

They offera good assortment of pastries and baked items. I thought they were a bit pricey and not all that special.

My wife and I visited the Sweet Shop and had a taste of their Stollen which was perfect. The choices displayed were many and the number of customers in the store showed us that the Sweet Shop had many sweet lovers in town.

The display of pastry is vast and as we have tried several, delicious. Consider them for a special cake.
