Possibly the best bakery I have ever visited. The pastries were fresh and delicious, the multi grain bread was great! The young lady who waited on us was very friendly and helpful. I would love to go back someday!

There is an old saying: with at least (4) coffee shops in the downtown area this is by far "The Best Coffee Shop On This Street". Very pleasant staff, great coffee ( and it doesn't require you to take out a loan to buy it), Plenty of seating areas, great assortment of pastry, and seems to be the meeting "hub"... More

The shop was very clean and staff very friendly. The brownies were fantastic! They have tables outside to sit and people watch.

My wife had raved about the sweet shop and we finally were able to go together. Pleasant experience all around the cheesecake was delicious and the iced coffee was perfect for a hot summer day.

This place has a wide variety of pastries and good coffee, including espresso and Lates. Some street side seating is available and it is refreshing on a nice day. They serve lunch (sandwiches) also but I have not tried lunch there. Prompt, polite service at the counter. No table service.

We enjoyed the wonderful variety and unique treats. Service was good; lovely hanging outside and visiting. The Harvest cookies are yummy as was the gluten free cheesecake.

The Sweet Shop provided yummy sustenance to our cycling group that recently visited Shepherdstown. We visited late in the day on Friday, but found that they still had a selection of breads, cookies, and cupcakes ready to go. Quite honestly, I went in expecting designer cookies and cupcakes with prices to match, but found the prices to be very reasonable... More

The sweet shop's bakery items are to die for! They usually jab a fair supply of bread. Wish SO SO SO much they made good sub rolls like they sell in Philadelphia.

We had sanwiches and the bread was very good (sundried rosemary) and pastries (chocolate eclair, coconut pyramid, and the avocado key lime pie). Try the place, you will not be disappointed.

After seeing this place on tv I wanted to stop by and see what is was all about. They had a good selection of sweets. Everything we ate was really good. We didn't see any ghost though.
