The Spring Street Market serves soups and salads, often made with fresh local ingredients. They also have some of the most delicious made-from-scratch baked goods in town.
Owner Karen Gosselin shares the story behind her delightful chocolate chip scones:
“I started making Scones about 22 years ago. I was a young mom, trying out different traditions to make the holiday time special for my three kids. I remember the first Christmas morning I made these, we ate them at 6:00 am, in our pajamas, sitting by the tree. We have had them every December 25th since then. My youngest son, Sawyer, has always been particularly fond of them.
When we opened the Cafe, 6 years ago, I started making all kinds of Scones. Every time I make Chocolate Chip, it smells like the holidays, and I think of my kids, so exited to eat the warm, chocolatey pastry.” ~ Karen
