Homemade Baked Goods

We have a Bakery du Jour, so you never know what sweet treats await you. If you are looking to be pleasantly surprised with different cakes, cookies, quiche, and other goodies that run the gamut from traditional southern, modern fare, or completely original, we are your kind of place. 

We usually have gluten-free fare — just ask if you do not see it.

We have a wonderful cotton candy machine with lots of fun flavors and an assortment of vintage candy to boot!

As the weather gets hotter, keep an eye out for our mix & match smoothies and ice cream selections.

Neighborhood nook to study, work, relax…

Uniquely comfy furniture, warm lighting, calming music, and free Wi-Fi make our place a wonderful spot to study, remote-work, or just relax. Minutes away from the heart of downtown Woodstock, we are a perfect stop on your walk about town. We hope to see you drop in to enjoy our quiet space with books galore, classic games, baked treats, coffee, tea, and a gift shop featuring local vendors.
