From the Owner

Rosebud Cottage shop was opened to provide customers a comfortable place to shop, a quiet place to have lunch, enjoy friends and be just off the beaten path from the hectic pace outside the door.
Chef Lindsay Kent has created our specialty menu along with daily specials and a variety of home baked cookies, cupcakes, cobblers and more. We offer teas, wedding & baby showers, birthday parties, private dinner parties and catering.
Rosebud Cottage is a pet friendly shop! Stop by and let your dog drink from the water bowl on the street.
