But there is a lot more than that. You can also get fabulous cookies ($1.50), cornbread, and various cakes. This is a good plan if you want a light lunch or a snack. I ate here quite a bit. You should also try some of the different drinks they have here. I had a bottle of the root beer ($2), and it was amazing! I sat outside the bakery, watched the rain, and drank my root beer. It was a lovely way to spend a bit of a rainy Sunday.
The bakeshop is also a store, and they carry everything you would need in your colonial kitchen. They had some beautiful copper cookware that was pretty pricy, but also a lot of stuff that was quite reasonable. You can get things like bags of hominy grits ($3.50), a hand-turned wooden rolling pin ($16), or one of many cookbooks, like The Williamsburg Art of Cookery. I also picked up a beautiful handmade basket for only $15.
If you are even mildly interested in cooking, this is a great place to stop by. You could also find some unique gifts to bring home to your favorite chef.
