Scatch Made Food Just for You at Dottie Audrey’s

Posted on 09 November 2015 by Editor

For a long time Duck Cedar Inn just north of Tuxedo along Rt. 17 sat all lonely — more invisible duck blind than mini shopping mecca.

Dottie Audrey's is a new bakery and cafe that's opened in Duck Cedar Inn, just a 1.5 miles north of Tuxedo and well worth the drive for lunch and coffee.

This season a whole new bustle of baking and conversation has settled in with the arrival and reclamation of the complex by Jan and Pat Jenkins. The Jenkins said they looked all over Tuxedo for just the right space to create Dottie Audrey’s, their charming cafe, coffee house and bakery extraordinaire.

DottielogoFresh breads, pastries, tasty-looking sandwiches (try out the popular chicken curry), Dottie’s serves light fare — acclaimed chowder and assorted original preps (think, things made with fresh bread). It’s a place where mornings you’ll find people at tables, engaged, in conversation or set up at an impromptu work station. Dottie’s provides interesting small touches – soap dishes on the wall near outlets, converted into phone chargers, and retro-toy Etch a Sketches for the unplugged.

Jan and Pat Jenkins are the owners of Dottie Aubrey's and have reclaimed much of Duck Cedar Inn with their comfortable place to find good bread and foods.

Pat Jenkins was an executive for Le Pain Quotidien, the popular Belgian fresh bread and organic ingredients collection of stores, and Dottie’s has the same simple, scratch made foods served up with care. A graduate of the Cornell’s School of Hotel Administration, days Jan Jenkins can be found working with staff behind the counter, complete with blue button down and white apron.

Pat said the Duck Cedar location provides the right comfortable space to establish a center in the community that would bring in people from the surrounding area — so far, so good, with Dottie’s drawing regular business from Tuxedo.

From Highland Mills, the Jenkins’ scoured western Pennsylvania for the many folk touches that dot the cafe — old barn wood reminiscent of grandma’s kitchen tabletop, a set of church pews, the big stained glass window that separates Dottie’s from their soon-to-open grinder sandwich shop next door (a hallway filled with collectibles also leads to the sandwich shop).

The bakery/cafe is just a mile and a half north of the Tuxedo on Route 17, and worth the hike or bike up the road to Duck Cedar for a lunch or brunch date.

Visit the new bakery and cafe Dottie Audrey's open most days until early and until 6 p.m. You can check things out here.
