Kitchen Kettle Village is a nice place to get out and walk in and out of the shops. We had lunch at the Kettle Cafe. It was very good. I had a tuna salad sandwich, Coke and lemon meringue pie for dessert. The pie was delicious!! We also had cheese french fries that were very tasty. I'd go back again.

My wife and I go here regularly since we own a second home in the area. This is a great place to stop and shop. The Kitchen Kettle shop in itself is fantastic with always much to sample. The Music Box store is also very good. A good time to stop by is on Friday evenings between Thanksgiving and Christmas-great atymosphere for all. try to avoid tourist season because it gets very crowded especially with all the tourist buses.

We really enjoyed the setting and all the little shops. There's lots to see, I think we spent 2-3 hours there going through all the shops. Beware that it is very crowded and touristy. We did go on a Saturday which I'm sure is part of why it is so crowded but we did get tired of bumping into and squeezing past people. It's also easy to loose people so probably a good idea to set up a meeting spot if you don't have cells on you. Also, because it's so touristy, things aren't cheap. You are not likely to find any deals here. Parking is free and on busy days, they have you park in the field so there's lots of parking (not sure what they do in the winter though). If you're looking for quilts, I recommend going a mile up the road (when the road splits, follow the left road) to the Amish house that sells them. There's a sign at the road and she has a good selection. Plus you get the true Amish experience.
