There was a good variety the day we arrived, my favorite was the coconut macaroons. Assortment of jellies and honey. Breads also. Things are reasonable, we went for coffe 3x and was happy to enjoy it.

My husband drove here because we had seen the show, "Ghosts of Shepherdstown". He was disappointed there was no paranormal activity that morning but that German Chocolate Cupcake made up for the lack of ghost. It was moist, and the icing was just sweet enough....More
