And a Bite to Eat

Does inner peace include making your stomach happy? If it does, make your way to Litchfield’s Dutch Epicure Shop Bakery, purveyor of baked goods, hand-made chocolates, cheeses and other delights since 1967. Those in the know recommend the almond macaroons, cherry stars and chocolate ginger shortbread.
