We thoroughly soaked in the holiday ambiance in Old Ellicott City. We explored several shops, some of which placed items they are selling outside for safety reasons and to lure people in. Some of our favorite stores are Shoemaker Country, Sweet Elisabeth Jane, Su Casa, and Sunflower Trading Company where I bought my favorite new hat! It wasn’t as crowded as past years, but the holiday cheer was everywhere. We even spotted the Grinch!
Once all of the stores closed at 5pm, we went to Manor Hill Tavern for a warm weekend meal. Their menu has so much to offer but when we saw the brick oven there was no turning back for our taste buds. We ordered two of their brick oven pizzas, a salad, and burger and fries, all of which impressed. Their drink menu was also extensive; I was very pleased with their apple specialty drink. They also serve their own brewed beer: Manor Hill Brewing. It sure was a cozy evening near the oven and with the holiday decor.
Thank you Old Ellicott City! We will be back soon 🙂
