Sperryville Trading Inc. was founded April 21, 2016. Our Cafe opened February 21, 2017.
The original building, built in 1970, went through a complete renovation with the buildout of a new commercial kitchen, electrical, mechanical, and plumbing necessary to open our Cafe and Market.
Both Eric and Janet Tollefson, owners and operators, designed, planned and executed the improvements to the building and opened the doors on February 20, 2017. We both left our full time careers and opened the new Cafe at the base of Shenandoah National Park – essentially the last place to grab a bite to eat before you enter Shenandoah National Park.
A portion of the original building (see below) was demolished because the building was beyond repair. Known as “The Parkway,” this was a gas station with a walk-in cooler where Many locals met at the store to fill-up their pick-up trucks with gas, grab a cold drink, and talk to their fellow neighbors.
For many years, “The Parkway” was a gathering place to catch-up on happenings. Sperryville Trading Cafe and Market would like to carry that tradition forward.
A covered deck was added to the cafe portion building to support additional outdoor seating.
We are open all year round. Please stop by and give us a visit.
