Exterior of the Bread Box & Cafe

There is nothing like having a wonderful treat from the Bread Box Bakery & Cafe. 

The Bread Box Bakery & Cafe offers 11 kinds of breads, saucer-sized cookies, flaky crust pies, giant cinnamon rolls, cakes and many varieties of mouth-watering deserts. 

The business owners believe strongly in the value of a community, that is why this small family owned business is closely integrated into the local Amish culture. 

From the personal sized pies to the secret recipe in the peanut brittle chewies, there is always something for everyone. The Bread Box Bakery and Cafe of Shipshewana also carries their own homemade jams, and jellies created next door at the Scherger’s Kettle Cannery.

Lunch is served at the Cafe located inside the store.  Choose from the many types of sandwiches or paninis served on homemade bread.  Try a fresh salad or a bowl of soup made from scratch. Because of the historical location of the Bread Box Bakery & Cafe, customers have the unique experience of dining in the home of Shipshewana’s founder. They can also enjoy outdoor dining in a garden setting or on the large wraparound front porch.

The large front porch, gazebo and arbor offer a great view of small town Amish life.  What a fun way to relax during a busy day of shopping!

Most of the delicious items from the Bread Box Bakery & Cafe can also be purchased at the Shipshewana Flea Market. The Flea Market, which is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays May through September is located just two blocks from the store. The two booths for the Bread Box Bakery are easily found next to Concession Stand A.
