My husband and I stopped and this is a great bakery. Large variety and crazy fresh; the baked goods on the shelf were 'warm'. The staff was exceptionally friendly. It is a little off the beaten path so be prepared to wash your car after...More

Went to the bakery for a couple of items, came out with four sacks. Five loaves of bread, dozen cinnamon rolls, Glazed donuts, cookies, and twists. Twists got eaten before we left. Awesome. They open up a 7am. Get there early.

There are 2 or 3 containers of coffee there, small. There are also small tables and chairs there, so you can sit and enjoy your bakery purchase. Per se, this is not a coffee house. But it surely could be used as one!

Correct to all the above. No a/c, no electricity, no credit cards, cash or checks only. No phones. Lots of skylights. It is the Amish way, to be simple.
