Baker's dressed in period clothing follow the original recipes to make breads, cinnamon rolls, delicious pond cake and the famous Moravian Sugar Cake. Other Moravian products, such as the cookies, are also available in the bakery. Must stop in.

A fun way to get a little history and some cookies at the same time. Great little hole in the wall that is well worth the visit.
