We went to the Monk's Bread store and they have more than bread. They have cups, aprons, totes, pottery, books, CDs, and other foods from other monasteries and local places. Don't forget to stop in and look at the chapel but be quiet inside.

Amazing place to renew your spirit. The architecture is truly beautiful. They sell baked goods, jellies , books, and a handful of other products to sustain the Abbey. Their breads are very popular in the area. So peaceful there.
