There's an artful touch in Jackie Green's baking hand. She's fond of the process, of finding the right ingredients and making cakes that crumble with Southern-style deliciousness. She's been baking since she was a young girl, and her family tradition taught her to eschew preservatives and hydrogenated oils to keep her recipes as flavorful as possible. Her specialty? Iced butter pound cake topped with pecans and a cream-cheese glaze. As the consummate small-business owner, Jackie blends managerial expertise with her baking talent; you might see her dispensing samples of her cupcakes, brownies, or cookies at local markets. This consistent professionalism helped Jackie earn the title of Best Bakery from the Holly Springs Sun in 2010.

The baristas at The Village Coffee House & Bakery source their beans from area roasters, supporting Fayetteville's economy while also ensuring that each cup of java has a rich, fresh taste. They also serve up shakes, smoothies, teas from Republic of Tea, and Italian sodas, which pair well with daily-baked pastries, including danishes, scones, and muffins. But perhaps the star of the bakery is their intricately decorated cakes.
