“Amish travels”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

Great bakery with in-house baked Amish foods as well as a nice gift shop. Located in the midst of Amish farm-country.

“Be careful”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

Maybe I was expecting to much or maybe it is just not what I am used to but I was kind of disappointed. I thought great I can try all this Amish baking I have heard so much about. I bought several different things but the were all kind of bland and the muffins were on the dry side, didn't really like anything I bought. The prices were very reasonable though.

Robert, we’re sorry to hear you were disappointed with our Pennsylvania Dutch style pastries and desserts. Grandma Smucker would be disappointed. Next time you’re here, please check out our non-traditional yummies like fresh fruit pies, artisan breads and seasonal fruit breads.

“One of the best around. Delicious apple fritters and bread”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

I've been coming to this bakery for many, many years. Their white bread is some of the best I've ever had, anywhere. It's a tiny little place, but they turn out some delicious baked good. Don't overlook the day old section! Most of it is EVERY bit as delicious, but much cheaper. Even their plain yellow cakes are surprisingly light, fluffy and tasty.

We’re so glad you keep coming back. For us, that’s the ultimate compliment! With our bakery selections changing throughout the harvest as fresh ingredients are available locally, it sounds like it’s time for you to visit us again. Next week we introduce our delicious wild berry bread.

Loved the fritters, and potato rolls that we brought back to Georgia. We would have visited the restaurant had we not been leaving the next day.
