Cash or check only no debit cards. So worth the drive to get fresh baked food. Also check out their furniture they have for sale. You wanna plan to go there early they do sell out fast.

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.
