“Enjoyable place to visit”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

I've been to a few Amish country stores and this is my favorite. The store can get crowded but that's a sign of good business. The shelves are packed with tons of goodies to look at...many you don't find anywhere else. The sandwiches are delicious. Made to order. On homemade bread with a thick helping of meat on each one. Everyone is very friendly. Enjoyable to just sit outside and watch the people in the community. Kids and adults on bicycles, in horse drawn buggies, families waking along the roadside. Quiet and serene. I heard their doughnuts are delicious but I haven't tried one myself.

“Best Cinnamon Rolls Ever...”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Stop by and get a big heapin mess of cinnamon rolls and a big roll of their butter, take them home and slather on a mess of that butter and nuke the cinnamon rolls!!!!
They are the best!!!!
Nice little store, fresh sandwiches made to order, lots of goodies to purchase.
Plus if you google them, some sites say they do not take credit cards, well they do now, so stock up on them thar rolls!
They are not too far off of I-77 and well worth the Detour!

“Awesome little store”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Small Amish store well off the beaten path, but definitely worth finding. They have unique items other stores don't, plus great grocery items and will fix sandwiches for you during lunch hours. Everybody that works there is ALWAYS friendly. Can get rather crowded, particularly on Fridays and Saturdays.

“Worth the Trip for those Donuts!!”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Neat little store in the middle of nowhere. Very crowded, narrow aisles jammed with product from floor to ceiling. Have found some interesting things that you don't see in most "country or Amish" stores, let alone grocery stores. Try the samples of sausage, nicely seasoned and fresh-tasting. But what is worth the drive are their freshly made on Saturday donuts! WOW. Dense, slightly chewy but still fluffy with a sugar glaze. I wanted to eat more than one and had to restrain myself! We took home half a dozen and my husband was lucky to get his!
