In 2001, the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College opened the Road Town Bakery here for the purpose of training culinary students in a retail environment. Sadly, 12 years later, it was announced that budget cuts dictated the bakery must close.

Enter chef Macgarvey (Mac) Thompson (who had worked at the college for a couple of years) and his wife Arlene Smith-Thompson. Together they decided to step in and take over where the college left off.

They opened their doors in March of 2013 and the cafe and bakery is just as popular as the Road Town Bakery was. Fresh bread, cookies, muffins, cup cakes, pies, cakes and tarts are just some of the baked goods offered.

Their breakfast menu includes items such as meat and veggie patties, sausage, eggs, pancakes, potato patties, ham and egg croissants, and several other tasty treats.

Mac's lunch menu changes daily and that information used to be posted on their Facebook page noted below. However, it seems they haven't kept up with that lately so perhaps it would be best to call ahead to see what's what.

I am not much of a photographer and taking photos of a cake through a glass display with a curved front, proved rather difficult. The photo does not do Mac's marvelous carrot cake justice as bent glass produces bent light. Sorry Mac, I tried!

They have a nice covered seating area outside where you can enjoy your meal.
