John Brown General & Butcher Shop which once was a gas station and general store has been become one of my favorite spots to pop into on my way to Baltimore. Walking into this quaint shop is like taking a tour through the pages of Bon Appetite Magazine. From the meat case that showcases cuts , to the other case that houses an abundant selections to build a buzz worthy charcuterie board, and there is no shortage of options. As you head back of the building, you will find an array of spirits ranging from wine to liquor as well as local beer.  In the few visits that I have made, I have feasted on cold cut subs, hamburgers, house cut french fries, and more recently hot chicken. All prepared in house, and lip smacking delicious. Heading into the warmer months, you can cross the street and pick up flowers and produce at a market stand. Anything you could ever need to prepare a delicious meal can be found at this charming little outpost.

Thank you, @curiouskitkatt! We're thinking about driving from Silver Spring to Lancaster (Dutch Wonderland) in a couple of weeks, and we'll be passing right by this place. I'd been thinking we'd grab subs somewhere on our way but hadn't figured out where yet. I'll definitely look into this place. Does the menu vary a lot from day to day or do they always have certain things on the menu (e.g., a cheeseburger or hot dog for the 5-year-old)?

Also, off-topic, but I thought I read somewhere about a creamery near Dutch Wonderland, but now I can't figure out where that might be. Do you know what I'm thinking of by any chance? I didn't see any mention in the various Lancaster and Amish Country threads, unless I missed it.

ETA: Never mind -- per Yelp they appear to have one or two sandwich options per day, so this may not work for us. 😞

From what I can tell they do have two sub options at the Butcher shop. An italian cold cut , and I cannot recall the other one. i think perhaps a a turkey or Ham club. 

As far as creamery go in Lancaster, I highly recommend Fox Meadows Creamery, but there are several in & around Lancaster County. Perhaps you may be thinking of Oregon Dairy , or Pine View?

FOX is awesome! They prepare all of the flavors on premise. Oregon Dairy serves Hershey Brand Ice Cream. And they let you sample as many flavors as you want...

The website is currently under construction, but they do happen to have an active Facebook page as well as Instagram. I'm certain you could inquire what they have available.  The food is exceptional, and the breads they use for their subs are provided by Cunninghams's in Towson.

adding to your growing list of options The Turkey Hill Experience. As you can imagine, there is no shortage of choices of where to go for ice cream!

That menu would be perfect for us! I'll check their social media Friday to see if they post a photo of their menu for the day.

Both butcher shop and the coffee spot  are lovely. I can not say enough good things about this spot of Baltimore County! There is ample dining space in the back of the general store, and if the weather shines beautifully, the outdoor area is so cute!
