Down Home Comfort Bakery
120-A E Main Street
Front Royal, VA 22630
What a gem! Down Home Comfort Bakery is owned by Ms. Maureen and her husband, Mr. Keith. This bakery has only been around a a little over a year, and they offer pies, cookies, brownies, cupcakes, breads, and Garber’s ice cream (a local ice cream company based out of Winchester).
When we walked in, we were greeted right away by Mr. Keith. The hubs and I each got a scoop of Garber’s ice cream – I had the Coffee Toffee Crunch (coffee ice cream with bits of toffee throughout; Ms. Maureen asked me if I would like to be topped off with her homemade chocolate sauce – I, of course, happily said YES! The chocolate sauce wasn’t overly sweet, and it was a nice little complement to my scoop. The hubs had the Cookies n’ Cream, and this tasted fresh.
We also tried the breakfast bar (recipe of Mr. Keith’s; a granola bar with nuts and berries); an Old-Fashioned Soft Molasses (I liked this as it was nice and soft with a hint of spice); a Fro-Ro (their signature cookie that some toasted coconut and made with oats; also tasty); a sugar cookie with toasted coconut; a cinnamon bun (only offered Fri/Sat/Sun; with a luscious amount of frosting; this was not overly decadent, and I really liked the frosting); a Pecan Sticky Bun (only offered Fri/Sat/Sun; large whole pecans with a nice cinnamon/brown sugar glaze); and, a mini cherry pie (one of the best cherry pies we’ve had, the whole cherries within had a slight tart but still sweet, and the crust was delicious).
They also have coffee and tea, and carry local/Amish goods, such as preserves and jams. Such friendly and sweet owners, support this local business – it’s ‘easy as pie’ as their baked goods are fabulous & comforting!
