Tomato Pie Cafe – 23 N. Broad St.

This charming Victorian eatery is the second oldest in Lititz. Dating back to the 1900s, this building has been the home to many great eateries ever since.

Join them for a full breakfast, lunch or light dinner as you choose to dine inside or outside on their patio.

Bakery at the Cupboard, Lititz’s largest full service bakery, located at the Lititz Family Cupboard restaurant, will be featuring its signature chocolate coconut macaroon. This classic chewy-yet-crunchy confection will be paired with Wilbur’s creamy dark chocolate.

Stop # 9

Cherry Acres features an eclectic mix of furniture handmade in Pennsylvania from reclaimed barn wood, imported pottery and iron, and antiques/collectibles from around the world. Custom orders for furniture are welcome.

If you are lucky, sometime during the day they might throw in some variations.
