Linville River Mercantile and Bakery, Crossnore
A new place opened on Hwy 221 out of Crossnore called Linville River Mercantile and Bakery. It is located just as you head out of town on the left of the highway. The building has been there forever and has housed many a business.
Now it is sweet in more ways than one. For a quick stop on a cold day, check out their fresh coffee and baked goods. Cakes, pies, breads and cupcakes fill the display case while the aroma of coffee warms the room.
The shop itself is an array of small gift items with a food, cooking or kitchen themes. There is a lot of inventory tucked into a small place. It doesn't allow for many to be inside at once. A few tables line the outside porch for those who want to eat in.
It is a quaint little shop with delicious baked goods - a nice stop on an afternoon drive. Right now they are open seven days a week but hope to close on Mondays. The hours are 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. For more information call 828.719.9510.
