Doll House Baked Goods, Christopher & Stephanie Doll
Doll House Baked Goods is a local bakery committed to using quality, locally-sourced ingredients, now open in Country Village Shops! Their baked goods come from family recipes made with pure flour, butter, eggs, and sugar that do not contain the fillers or stabilizers found in most commercial products. This makes their breads, cookies, pies, and cakes the finest in terms of flavor and satisfaction, bringing a taste of home baking to their customers.

Member Shout-Out!

"We would like to thank Social Grounds for their excellent customer service. The Chamber was in a bit of a bind needing coffee for our June General Meeting. We called Amy the night before our event and she offered to open early to get us the coffee we needed by 6:45am. Social Grounds really saved the day!"
