About Us
Since the Spring of 1993, Smithfield Gourmet Bakery & Café has offered a quaint café with a good atmosphere. We are proud of our commitment to good food and good service. Only fresh ingredients and hand selected seasonal produce are used. Our breads are homemade from our own recipes, and baked fresh daily. We invite you to come in and enjoy our food, our service, and then enjoy our beautiful little historic town.


History
Our building was built in the early 1800's by a local businessman by the name of Jack Blair. The building was built upon one of the ten original land grants from England in 1734. The buidling operated as a brick storehouse for over 20 years and then it became a pharmacy and operated as such from 1834 until the late 1970's.

Since that time it has served the community by housing various types of businesses. Since 1993 we have had the honor of operating a bakery and café. We have devoted a great deal of time and money to preserve this historic landmark for the future of our town. Currently, the third floor or our building which is fully restored, contains original pine floors, exposed brick walls, and original windows. It currently serves as a wonderful dining room for dinner as well as special catered events.
