The Bridgewater Village Store, a town favorite, has recently re-opened after renovations. Besides all the delicious local products that they sell, they are now also open for dinner, serving a menu inspired by the availability of the local produce. In the spring and summer, there is both indoor and outdoor dining.
The greatest treats to be found are at Bridgewater Chocolates. These chocolates are handmade American-style chocolates made locally, but sold nationally and internationally. They offer an amazing variety of creamy, high cocoa-butter-content chocolates with the creamy ganache of European truffles, oozing caramel, brittle buttery toffee, handmade marzipan, and more! Bridgewater Chocolates make great gifts and they have been featured on the Food Network numerous times.
