Today's Homemade Scone:
Chocolate Toffee Crunch &
Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

Scratch-made soup available Tuesday-Friday.

The cafe' is situated in the home of John Hays who was a Civil War soldier, the founder of Carlisle Gas Works, President of Frog, Switch and Mfg. Company, and a lawyer. Take a look around at the photos and historic background while you're here. The original exterior stone walls found behind the drywall have been exposed, and the outside patio, which was gone, has been rebuilt. I'm delighted to show off a renovated piece of Carlisle's history.

Me and My Kids

On the left, that's my son Tommy. He's the mind behind the glazed donut sandwich and some of my specials. He is AROTC at Virginia Military Institute majoring in International Studies and minoring in Arabic and National Securities.
In the middle, that's me, Tara. I'm originally from Port Jefferson Station in Long Island, New York. I retired early from a career in public education as a Reading Specialist and Assistant Principal to follow my real dream of opening a cafe'.
On the right is my daughter Sara. She is the creator of the Boston Cream cream cheese on my menu. Of course, I named it "Sara's Sweetness." She is at the local community college and will be transferring to a four year college to study Clinical Psychology.

Thank You to…

The Carlisle Borough and 

The Cumberland County Redevelopment Authority 

for financial assistance that allowed me 

to open my cafe’.
