First stop was coffee and breakfast.
It may not look like much, but the food is amazing. It is organically grown by the Ruegsegger family, then cooked and served by them in their little restaurant/grocery store. Everything from dairy and eggs, meat, honey, to produce is grown 15 miles from the store.
The breakfast menu features huge quiches, such as asparagus-truffle and Swiss cheese spinach/kale/chard, duck egg omelets, and Swiss roesti potatoes. We chose three items and potatoes and split them. It is probably the best breakfast I ever ate.

Now, on to the shops. There are only a few and they are in historic buildings, built in the mid 1800s.
The old grist mill, built in 1864, is now an antique shop upstairs and an art gallery downstairs where the Sugar River flows underneath.
The creamery is another art gallery.
Next stop is the chicken store. They sell everything for chickens, including fancy houses, and everything for people who like chickens.
On our way home we stopped at the Amish grocery store. There is no sign; you just have to know which farm lane to turn down. We stocked up on the essentials to do the Christmas baking, eggs, local cheese, and some salve that fixes everything.
