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....MoreThank 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!

A friend of mine told me to stop here when in town. Glad I did. Friendly service. They person at the counter made a few suggestions, and patiently answered my questions. I was not disappointed. Was quite full after having one of their burritos (fresh ingredients). Great variety of choices off their menu. See picture that I uploaded. Will stop here again next time I am in town.

Nutters Ice Cream

Reviewed By travelmanColumbia_MD - Columbia, MD

If you are in the Sharpsburg area, visit this one of a kind, old fashioned and a bit quirky ice cream parlor. It is a fun experience just to experience it. Be careful, their scoops are HUGE Think twice before you order a medium, the "small" consists of two BIG scoops! They had over 30 flavors the day we visited, and the locals come and go as this is the best deal in the area. Very inexpensive!

The Press Room

Reviewed By John B

The broad selection can satisfy anyone, with excellent seafood dishes, as well as a variety of meat dishes and vegetarian selections. Everything we ordered was well prepared, imaginative and delicious. We were there on a Saturday evening and they may have been short-staffed, because service was a little slow, but the food was worth the wait. The wine selection is also very good. The restaurant isn't large, so be sure to make a reservation. You'll be glad you did.

Pressed Flour

Pressed Flour is a small-batch, one-woman bakery operation featuring local farm product and goods made from scratch and by hand. We serve a little breakfast, a little lunch, and a variety of sweet and savory pastries and bread. Our bakehouse is about eight feet wide, so it is carryout-oriented, but there's a bench outside, a few seats inside, and you're more than welcome to make yourself comfortable. We offer quality soda pops and seltzers from the likes of Spindrift and Found, and feature a rotating cast of locally roasted coffees and/or house made tea blends. I'm an old-fashioned baker, working overnight, selling til I'm out, and heading back to the kitchen to start over. We're production-heavy throughout the week, and open to the public on weekends, Friday through Sunday. If you need a cake or drop-off catering during our off-hours, give me a call! Check the Pressed Flour Facebook page to keep up on fluctuating hours during busy event seasons!

Some amazing baking going on here. We had a dinner party for clients and served several types of rolls. I nibbled on one or two; I've got to lose weight! (What? And not be able to write any more reviews?) People did not know which...MoreThanks so much for your fantastic review! I'm so glad everything was a hit.

This is a small organically focused grocery, not a resto. Most of the items are not available in the local Food Lion; special coffees, duck eggs, milk in glass bottles, and so on. It truly is a wonderful little community resource.

Stopped in for lunch with two friends after a morning visiting Antietam Battlefield. What a wonderful find. Extensive menu of sandwiches, salads and wraps. We really enjoyed everything we tried. Service was prompt and friendly. There is a pleasant terrace for when the weather is a little warmer. Strongly recommend this cozy place.

The sandwiches we tried were okay; not at all bad, but not outstanding, either. The prices seemed a bit on the high side for what you got. Service was good. The resto is dog-friendly.

Bistro 112

Bistro 112 is a neighborhood French Bistro in the center of historic downtown Shepherdstown. It is a favorite of local residents and a haven for travelers passing through – who enjoy the area for its history, theater, music, biking trails, small shops and river activities. The Bistro offers creative French food at affordable prices. Built in 1830, the Bistro has several dining areas: front bar, upstairs salon or outdoor patio under wisteria. The menu offers French favorites such as l’entrecote and pommes frites, crepes, salads, soups and special entrees. Rooms are available for private events.

Just two blocks down German Street from Thomas Shepherd Inn (see my review of this B&B), Bistro 112 offers the flavors of France in this small West Virginia town, Shepherdstown.

My wife and I chose the Prix Fixe Bistro Meal, which offered good value (essentially, a free dessert). We started with Salade Maison (mixed greens, grapes, walnuts, shaved parmesan and vinaigrette dressing). I had L’entrecote au Poivre (French-style grilled steak with peppercorn sauce and frites that tasted like those I had in Paris years ago). My wife enjoyed her Escalope de Poulet (chicken breast in white wine, butter, lemon and capers). The dessert, not currently listed on the online menu, was nice, but I can't remember what it was -- my fault, not the restaurant's!

TIP: Fine print on the menu says the Prix Fixe Bistro meal is only available to large groups, but our server said it's available to everyone.

TIP: You probably do need a reservation for Friday or Saturday night, and you can make that reservation via OpenTable.com
