We got pumpernickel, and also English Muffin Bread. Both loaves are almost gone now! Didn't try anything else.

Was worth the visit! It was huge and a great pastry to share . Building was old but pastries were splendid . Extremely helpful and friendly wait staff. Nice bistro tables outside.

Thanks so much for the compliments! The Shepherd Twist is a scratch-made sweet dough pastry with toasted pecans, coconut, cinnamon and apricot jam and it is one of our favorites as well. Please come and see us again!

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!

Stopped here for coffee and was pleased with all the fresh baked goods. Took some pepperoni rolls home for lunch the next day. Highly recommend stopping by whenever you are in Town.

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

Delightful. The people were great and the food was delicious! My mother had a chicken salad sandwich that she enjoyed very much. I had a doughnut lol

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!

I've never actually been here, but I had dinner at the blue moon, and ordered baklava, and the waiter said that it came from here. It had a lemony taste, which was literally divine. (I'd like the recipe please!)More
