“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

I grew up in Alfred and am lucky to have family still living there. Whenever I visit home, one of my first stops is always The Bakery at Notre Dame. I always get the dinner rolls and a few other of their fresh breads or pastries. Everything baked here is of the highest quality - clearly made with love and good ingredients. 

The bonus is the location of the bakery, up on Shaker Hill. It's a bit, but not too far, off the beaten path; sitting on the grounds of the Brothers of Christian Instruction, a peaceful oasis in the middle of apple groves and gardens and former Shaker buildings. 

The Bakery is operated by the York County Shelter Programs - providing meaningful work experience to those who seek assistance from the Shelter.

If you are passing through, I strongly urge you to stop by and see the grounds on Shaker Hill and try the Bakery's fresh baked goods for yourself.

“Amazing product!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012 via mobile

There is serious talent producing these products!!! Try the garlic and basil focaccia. This bread must be award winning!! Or, in the early Spring, the maple nut bars. The best part of visiting this wonderful bakery is that the proceeds go to an absolutely wonderful cause!!!
