Stopped by to get some souvenirs. They had all kinds of t-shirts and sweets. Many different kinds of souvenirs to choose from. Right when we walked in a worker handed us a sample of the shoo-fly pie. It was really good. Bought souvenirs and some homemade goodies to eat back at the hotel. Great place to stop by. They have... More

Dutch Haven was close to work so I stopped in to try it. Although take out was not the quickest the food was very good. I did not try their buffet but instead ordered off of the menu. I did come back again and my food was very good the second time. However, again they were quite slow. Their customer... More

I visited this place almost 15 years ago and it was basically the same. Left with a shoo-fly pie and some souvenirs. Worth checking out as they will give you a sample of the pie which is pretty tasty.

I have travelled to Lancaster for many years and never tried the shoo-fly pie. When we entered the Dutch Haven, we were greeted with a sample. It looked good with the whipped cream on top. So I figured it was worth a taste. Oh my goodness, it was delicious! I bought one to take home. After that, I tried the... More

Their Chocolate Pecan Pie is absolutely amazing. My father who is a shoofly pie connoisseur truly enjoyed the wet bottom shoofly pie. It wasn't too sweet as many make them. The shop had plenty of gifts as well.

Its more of a Bakery and souvenir shop. The staff was friendly. We did get a free sample of the Shoo Fly Pie. It is good, butfFor my personal taste there is better pie around the area. Kitchen Kettle Village comes to mind or Millers. We did get Whoopie Pies here and they were pretty good.

The pie is wonderful here, and I always love to get a piece of shoo-fly pie. When you buy a piece, the staff will happily heat it up and cover it with whipped cream for you too! The rest of the shop is very kitschy and awkwardly laid out. The place is packed with all the same souvenirs you can... More

Unfortunately, you shouldn't call this a cafe. It once housed a restaurant with the best shoofly pies. Things change. The restaurant met its demise and the building sat vacant. Eventually along come people willing to bake the time honored recipe. You get a sample upon entering. The restaurant is no more, and the place could be cleaner, but if you... More
