Good Eats: Perfect Daily Grind at Tootsie’s in White Sulphur Springs

White Sulphur Springs has it all. America’s resort, scenic mountain landscapes, an underground casino, craft beer, barbeque, a public pool, pizzerias, parks, public tennis courts, local retailers, hemp farmers, a sports performance center, outdoor dining, antiquing, an international market, a cartoon map (pick us up or subscribe!), a wine shop, bars, a toy store, a bike shop, picturesque golf courses, and a hardware store.

But over the last few years, as craft brew has grown to dominate the local food and drink headlines, a new market has opened up: specialty coffee. As the beer taps flowed, the coffee slowly followed. And today, you’ll be hard-pressed to not discover Tootsie’s Place, a coffee shop and bakery. Since opening on January 12, 2021, this shop is slinging hot and cold brews five days a week on the main street downtown. BONUS: You can conveniently place your order online at tootsiesplacewv.com. The estimated prep time is just 10 minutes!

There is everything you would expect from a coffee house…

Every day the ovens are filled with sheets of muffins, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, and cinnamon rolls to create the day’s supply of scratch-made pastries.

Every day the ovens are filled with sheets of muffins, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, and cinnamon rolls to create the day’s supply of scratch-made pastries. But Kennedy doesn’t stop there as she also offers Cream Pie by the slice or whole and cakes can be prepared in a variety of 24 flavors, 23 icings, and 12 different fillings including apple, cookie dough, peach, raspberry, blackberry, and chocolate to name a few.

Kennedy tells us that since opening, there has been an overwhelming amount of support from the community and visitors. “All the locals talk about how nice it is to see businesses coming back on the main street and thriving.” Kennedy is originally from White Sulphur Springs and is a 2017 Johnson & Wales graduate with a BA in Baking & Pastry/Food Service Management, with a concentration in Beverage. She spent her summer and holiday breaks working in the Omni Homestead pastry kitchen and says she had amazing mentors. Before opening Tootsies, Kennedy managed small bakery in Blacksburg followed by a job at The Market on Courthouse Square in Hinton.
