This is the only place to buy whoopie pies when in Lancaster. Four different flavors, always fresh, stuffed with icing. Whenever we get a craving, we order on-line and have them shipped. A little expensive, but definitely worth it.

Known about this hidden gem for years. Great local bakery. Whoopie Pies, and Shoo Fly pie are specialties. Very nice rural setting.

Anytime we are in Amish country, we stop at Bird in Hand Bakery. I always make sure I have quarters to feed the goats outside. Then I go in and we usually get the Molasses and Sugar Cookies. They melt in your mouth!

Fantastic bakery and breakfast items! Especially the apple fritters! Nice area upstairs to eat and outside on porch. Great place! My kids also enjoyed the farm animals outside. Highly recommend

I did not eat in the cafe, but did pick up a few baked goods. This is not an Amish shop. The baked goods are pretty average and on the expensive side. Wish I could find a good bake shop in the area.

Very tasty. There are many fresh pastries and even 2 for 1 last minute deals. Nice location but busy, across from Farmers Market. If you're in mood for dessert or snack, don't miss this place. Upstairs - seating avail + restrooms.
