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. The bakers create custom-designed masterpieces for birthdays—which might feature the child's favorite cartoon character or professional chess player—weddings, and other special events.
