Sweet or savory - Jeannie Bird's pastries and other goodies are a real treat!
The shop opened in early 2015 ago and they have already become a Main Street favorite. All pastries and baked goods are made on-site; owner and baker Jeannie herself is usually behind the counter or buzzing around the kitchen. Her offerings are creative and delicious - and always served with a smile!
In the morning, they offer locally roasted coffee; in the afternoon, they are BYOB. Grab a bottle of vino and a couple of savory pastries and hang out in a window seat and people watch!
In addition, Jeannie's husband Bernie is a very knowledgeable wine salesman/distributor and offers on-site wine appreciation classes in collaboration with the local community college. Check out the schedule here: http://carrollcc.edu/cooking
Located at 42 W. Main Street in Westminster, MD. Open Tuesday-Saturday 7 am - 5 pm.
In addition to the Main Street location, you can also find Jeannie Bird at the Saturday morning farmer's market on Railroad Avenue (May-October). Get there early for the best selection!
Favorite Dish: The Signature Butterhorns are to die for! Order a couple of extras for the road - you won't be sorry!

I had not been to O'Lourdan's Irish Pub in several months and returned this past weekend to find them in a sorry state. The food was tasteless and bland (had a spicy appetizer, the Jameson's Steak tips, and it needed some spice...omg). The atmosphere used to have a real flair for the Celtic and those proud of Irish heritage. Again, not the same anymore...they had a 'rock' band there this past weekend. When I used to go it was Celtic Rock bands and bagpipes...no more! To add insult to injury, the bathroom was a dirty, smelly mess. I am saddened and disheartened to know that this restaurant has gone so far downhill but it really has...when you get there, just keep on driving by!
Favorite Dish: Nothing.

Cheap food served among the good old boys of Curl Canny, Merlin (or Carroll County, Maryland to non-natives). Anything made with apples is a good bet (they are connected with their own orchard) and the ice cream is great (although many prefer Hoffman's across town).
Favorite Dish: Fried chicken livers, followed by apple pie a la mode.
Address: Rt. 31 and Main Street, just south of Rt. 140
Directions: West on 140 past the split for 97 North (Gettysburg), left on Rt 31, right on Main Street.
