We proudly provide health-conscious, vegetarian selections and gluten-free options from Rise Bakery of Washington DC. With a thoughtful intention toward reducing plastic waste, we strive to source from vendors who use recyclable and biodegradable materials and share a commitment to improve our ecosystem, and communities.

Originally an 18th-century mill town on the Occoquan River, The Town of Occoquan is now a charming restored artists community brimming with attractions, neighborhood shops, small businesses, and scenic parks, making it one of Virginia’s best small-towns and lovable getaways. Centrally located directly on Mill Street, The Ballywhack Shack makes for the ideal quick eats stop on a day enjoyed in town.
