I must start off this review with a bit of hesitation, because I fear after reading this, Sadie's will no longer retain the status of "hidden gem" which tends to be a bit overused these days, but I must confess it REALLY is a hidden gem. Sadie's Bake Shop has been family run by a wonderful Amish family for the past fifty years and it is literally in the basement of their house! This may sound both shady and unappealing, but I can confirm it is neither. To start, the drive out is beautiful - lots of farms, rolling hillsides, uncluttered vistas, etc... When you finally arrive (and believe me I thought Google Maps got it wrong when I arrived!) you park in the back of their house and follow the small signs that lead you down to their back basement door with a sign that simply reads "Sadie's Bake Shop." Open the door and immediately you are overcome by the smell of fresh baked apple fritters, doughnuts, shooflly pie, and tons more! The prices are ridiculously reasonable and the quality is as you can imagine - amazing. Twenty bucks will get you a LOT of baked goods, but be sure to bring cash - no cards accepted (as expected) My suggestion is to take the ride out on a sunny day and make a day of it. It's not in Lancaster, but about 40 minutes northeast of it. Also be sure to call before you go, as they are not open two days out of the week ( I Believe Sunday and Wednesday?)
