Smithfield features an array of restaurants, for any palate. From the luxury of a historical Inn. There are so many places to eat and taste an array of different foods. The Smithfield Gourmet Bakery and Cafe is located on Main Street a small walk from the Inn. At one time this bakery was a good old fashion ice cream polar. Thats have been many businesses over the years, and since 1993 we have had the honor of operating a bakery and café. We have devoted lots of time and money to preserve this historic landmark for the future of our town. Currently, the third floor or our building which is fully restored, contains original pine floors, exposed brick walls, and original windows.Our building was built-in the early 1800’s by a local businessman by the name of Jack Blair. The building was built upon one of the ten original land grants from England in 1734. The building operated as a brick storehouse for over 20 years and then it became a pharmacy and operated as such from 1834 until the late 1970’s.
