Due to lack of staffing, we will be reducing our café operating hours beginning Monday, August 23. The new hours are as follows.
Café: 6 am-3 pm Monday, Wednesday – Saturday.
*The café will be closed on Tuesdays (Donuts and coffee will still be available for purchase).
Our Bakery retail side will remain open 6 am-6 pm Monday – Saturday.
This is a temporary change until we can acquire some more help.

Our mission is to make delicious, handcrafted food onsite from the freshest ingredients.

Handcrafted Casual Cuisine, Baked Goods and Ice Cream

Whether you’re looking for a light meal, a loaf of fresh-baked bread, a specialty coffee drink or something to satisfy your sweet tooth, you’ll find it at the Bird-in-Hand Bakery & Cafe.

Our cafe menu includes delicious handcrafted sandwiches, crisp salads, soups, smoothies and delectable desserts – all made with care from high-quality ingredients. We use all-natural, antibiotic-free chicken, local meats and produce grown on nearby farms whenever possible – including our home-grown fruits and vegetables in season.

A good example of homegrown is our pumpkin products, like pumpkin pies, bread, rolls, whoopie pies and ice cream. They are made with pumpkins picked directly from our on-site pumpkin patch.

If you’re craving homemade ice cream in Lancaster County, be sure to savor a scoop of our premium artisan ice cream made on our premises with local fruits, all-natural flavorings and even some stir-ins from our own bakery.

Our bakery has been in business for generations. We still make many of our baked goods from scratch, including some from Grandma Smucker’s original recipes. We’re famous for wet-bottom shoofly pies, whoopie pies, giant apple fritters, pumpkin pies, birthday cakes, donuts, and other Pennsylvania Dutch favorites. We’re also known throughout Lancaster for wedding cakes, cookies, pastries, specialty seasonal breads (pumpkin bread, etc), and creatively hand-decorated cakes for every occasion.

Have a hungry crowd? We’ll cater to your group of 10 or more. More information about catering.

Whether you’re exploring Amish Country or you live or work nearby, remember the Bird-in-Hand Bakery & Cafe for breakfast, lunch, a light supper, coffee break, dessert, and much more!
