Ginny Davis is the Community Welcome representative for Adams County and has offered to provide some personal insight into local establishments in the Gettysburg area. So when you are visiting Amblebrook, stop by and check them out.
Truly one of the finest gems you'll find in Gettysburg is The Dobbin House Tavern. Built in 1776, it is the oldest building in town and was used as a station on the Underground Railroad aiding slaves on their journey to freedom. Boasting 13 working fireplaces, this house is furnished with period appropriate antiques. A casual menu is served in the Spring Tavern where customers are able to see the spring that flows under the house that the Dobbin family used for their water supply. The menu is a lighter collection of salads, sandwiches and of course the featured and famous King's Onion Soup. If you'd like more of a dinner, then you can dine in the main house where there are actual canopy bed frames that are used for seating. A more extensive menu is provided including their signature Prime rib and Crab Ala Dobbin. Don't forget to stop by the gift shop before you leave. You're sure to find a treasure from their unique gift line. Visit their website at www.dobbinhouse.com for location and hours.
Boasting 5 locations in the Gettysburg area, The Ragged Edge Coffee House is well known to the local crowd. Coffee and tea are their specialties - providing fresh roasted, full bodied coffee. Being a coffee shop, they offer all types of coffee, lattes, cappuccinos, hot chocolate, tea, smoothies and cold brew. This is also a great place to grab a breakfast or brunch sandwich. One of the favorites is their blueberry, ham, and brie sandwich. But there are many to choose from. This time of year, their pumpkin latte is a specialty drink you won't want to miss out on. The location in downtown Gettysburg (110 Chambersburg St.) has a spacious front porch and backyard area for outdoor seating. Don't forget to grab a homemade muffin or pastry for your drive home. Whether it's hot and you need something special to cool you down, or cold outside and you need a warm beverage, check out The Ragged Edge. It won't disappoint!
