Been coming to the area for a couple of years and finally made it to dinner downtown to try. Open late during the week which is nice for an after dinner treat.

This shoppe was recommended to us by friends who frequent Staunton. We ended up going quite late in the evening to satisfy a sweet tooth, and were not disappointed. We loved the atmosphere and staff! Will definitely return.

I really enjoyed the Pineapple Basil! My husband had the Cherry Cheesecake and Lemon flavors. My only regret is not coming by again to try another... More
