Glory Bank 6Just off Route 13 in Effingham, Glory Bank is a sweet little coffee and dessert shop on a pretty 2560 parcel. The owners have a happy photo of their February opening this year, located on a wall among cat prints.

There are lots of sparkles at Glory Bank. You can walk to Route 13 easily, but the establishment isn’t discernable as a public spot from the road. As I approached it, I noticed the welcome sign.

Glory Bank 2

There’s seating in which to contemplate or read, and more chairs at a counter for a small party. 

Glory Bank 3

There are cakes and pies on the counter, with more in a glass case;  the careful attention to detail is impressive.

Glory Bank 4 

The backyard has whimsical elements, with more wildflowers and sparkles.

The owner profile says they don’t speak English. This was a delightful find to happen upon.
