“Busy, bustling and always crowded - german specialty sweets”
Review of Sweet Shop

Sweet Shop
Ranked #1 of 1 Dessert in Shepherdstown

Reviewed 11 December 2017

Had a few german pastries - heavy but super tasty! They also serve soups and delicious hot drinks - especially the hot chocolate....nice place to pop in on a cold snowy day - like it was on Saturday....the town crier came in and rang his bell and told a story - and left...nice little holiday bonus while we enjoying our german sweets. Obviously popular with not only the locals - but just about everyone!

Thank you for taking the time to review our little bakery, especially with all the holiday activity that was taking place. Shepherdstown is always bustling with holiday cheer and we're fortunate to be right in the middle of it all! We're happy to offer hot soup and drinks to warm you during these cold winter days. Be sure to come back during the summer for the specials we offer to beat the heat!

Stopped in here twice during my visit. Great atmosphere, good coffee choices, naughty pastries and snacks if you want to be bad. Glad I don't live nearby cause this place would become a habit for sure. Good place to stop in to have a snack, coffee and just people watch at the window. Yes, you can get sandwiches but I never tried them this trip. Maybe next time.

Thank you for your review! We'd love to have you back for a visit so that you can have one of our sandwiches (made on our own freshly baked bread) while you watch the town go by through our windows. See you soon!

I had the Shepherds Hook (I believe...or tail). It was delicious and fresh and unique. I believe it may have had some apricot in the flavoring. Doggie friendly. Definitely check it out. The cupcakes, cookies and breads looked delicious!

You had our Shepherd Twist! It's our house made sweet dough filled with coconut, chopped pecans, cinnamon and apricot jam (you got it!) covered in a sweet glaze with a fondant drizzle. It is sticky and sweet and delicious! With all the choices we offer, it was no easy task to settle on the Shepherd Twist. Glad you were happy with it, and with Shepherdstown. We hope to see you again soon!

Oh my goodness what a great selection of goodies. We stopped there two of the three days we were there. We purchased something different each time. The people were great, the cookies, muffins. cannoli, fruit bars, coffee, hot chocolate, yea I could keep on going. It was a great place to just sit and watch the people out the window as we probably gained some pounds, but who cares it was great. They had sandwiches too but who needs that where there are cupcakes. hehehe. We will definitely stop back in. Thank you

Thank you so much for your review, Kathleen! We're partial to our cupcakes, as well, although our sandwiches are made on our own freshly baked breads, so you'll have to try one the next time you're in Shepherdstown. See you soon!

Don't miss the Sweet Shop when in Shepherdstown. Their bakery is the best. This is a college town so baked goods move quickly. Get there early!

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review of the Sweet Shop! It's true that our donuts and pastries do sell out quickly, especially on the weekends. If you're planning a trip to Shepherdstown, you can always call ahead a day or two and place an order for your favorite items. If we can, we'll have them boxed and ready for you.
