Intro
Introduction

With its trademark 1954 red Ford truck—previously owned by fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger—parked outside, the Red Truck Bakery is a visual standout in the heart of the Virginia Piedmont hunt country 50 miles outside of Washington, D.C. But for locals and New York Times food critics, the bakery founded in a renovated 1921 Esso filling station is a regular stop for another reason: unforgettable cakes, granola, muffins, and coffee.

About The Food

Red Truck’s old-fashioned baked goods with an updated southern twist are made daily from local, seasonal ingredients whenever possible. The moonshine cake (a Southern Living magazine favorite) is a heady, elegant indulgence, made with real Virginny hooch from friends in the next county. The Meyer lemon cake exudes complex citrus flavors and lemon-kissed royal icing, and the Shenandoah apple cake is filled with local apples, fresh-pressed cider and topped with a maple glaze. Triple-chocolate cake is an unrestrained celebration of cocoa thrice over. The sour cream coffee is irresistibly moist. Buttery rum cake, featured in Oprah’s O Magazine, is famous in its own right. Even chunky homemade granola—dubbed "the best in North America” by Travel Channel food guru Andrew Zimmern—is an event here.

Meet The Owner

A magazine art director, owner Brian Noyes left a successful publishing career to pursue his passion for food and cooking. After moving to a farm in Virginia, he started making jams under a “Red Truck” label and selling them through local country stores from an old truck he bought from fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger. Customer enthusiasm led to baking, and soon he was turning out breads, pies and pastries on Friday nights to meet the weekend demand. When he showed up early one Saturday to drop off baked goods and found the parking lot full of waiting customers—half an hour before the store opened—he knew he found his next calling.
