It is the perfect cupcake, proclaims pitu. At the Old Chatham Country Store, $2.50 buys a masterpiece in pleated paper: moist chocolate cake, topped with buttery chocolate frosting, and crowned with half an Oreo. Other combinations include chocolate cake with white frosting and white cake under a summer storm of shredded coconut.

This restored small-town landmark also serves breakfast and lunch and sells sweets from Ithaca Fine Chocolates, cheeses from Old Chatham Sheepherding Company, and other fancy foods from local producers.
