Schoolhouse Kitchen

19210 Opessa St SE
Oldtown, 21555
This is a great place to grab a bite to eat whether you are passing through in a car or on a bicycle on the C&O Canal. The people who work here are the owners and operators and help you in every way possible. It is a small, refurbished school house and has a small town, homey feeling about it. The prices are reasonable and if you ask for a special addition or subtraction from items on the menu you can get it. Enjoy your time here and have the peanut butter pie (the secret desert!).
The schoolhouse is definitely one of a kind. It will take you back to elementary school cafeteria days, only much smaller. The room is filled with every graduating class picture, old memorabilia, tons of books, and a bulletin board full of ads for local side jobs/ sales. The sweet tea was good. I ordered the equivalent of a Dairy Queen chicken basket. The food was pretty greasy and I couldn't eat much of it. I probably should have gotten a burger!
Great stop for cyclists, or anyone. Very cycling friendly. Located at the Oldtown School, which closed its doors to students in 2000. No big sign out front, so be careful not to miss. Simple, home cooked menu of all-American fare. I felt right like I was back in school, eating in the old cafeteria, with much of the memorabilia surrounding me, including the school chairs. I had a simple grilled cheese with a side of macaroni salad - just water to drink and my bill was $3.60. Well, there you go....can't beat that! Highly recommend if biking on the canal, or driving on the road. Also about the only place to stop and eat between Paw Paw and Cumberland, so take advantage!
