Fresh baked goods from cake to cookies. This is the place I would treat myself to if I was in Shepherd University. Tables and chairs inside and out. A nice place to meet up with friends.

Went here one Sunday morning just for a donut and some coffee. Seen it on the Tv show "Ghosts of Shepherdstown" and had to check it out in person! Definitely a great place and the donut was sooooo good!

Who can say no to a freshly baked, house-made pepperoni roll? Certainly not me. So glad you enjoyed and please come again!

We love our chicken salad too! We add in golden raisins, chopped apples, walnuts and a tarragon mayo and serve it on a butter croissant. Delicious! However, if given a choice, I would go for a donut as well! Please come again!
