Fancy Gap Coffee and Ice Cream Is Officially Open!

by »

After months of planning and hard work by the Olde Mill team, the dream has become a reality, Fancy Gap Coffee and Ice Cream Shop is alive and kicking.  Mechelle O’neal is our manager, and has done an amazing job getting everything up and running.  You should drop by and have some Dark Hollow roasted coffee or Carabbus Creamery ice cream.  These are two partners that provide us with great local products.  We also have some delicious pastries from a local bakery.  It is located just a stone’s through from the Blue Ridge Parkway on Highway 52.  Make you day a little brighter with some local treats brought to you by Olde Mill.
