Just 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.
There’s seating in which to contemplate or read, and more chairs at a counter for a small party.
There are cakes and pies on the counter, with more in a glass case; the careful attention to detail is impressive.
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.
