About Us

A locally-owned & locally-sourced bake shop & cafe serving the Manheim, Lititz and Lebanon areas.

Our Mission

At Mill 72, we’ve always had a passion for baking and coffee. Our family-owned cafe and bake shop is a space where you can connect, unwind and enjoy our delicious, locally-sourced specialty drinks, baked goods & light breakfasts and lunches.

Locally Sourced

All of our ingredients come from local suppliers, farms and businesses.

Family owned

The Miller family was born & raised right here in Manheim, PA.

Perfect Blend

Our passion for baking & coffee blends perfectly with our desire to create a space for you to connect.

The Mill 72 Story

Our name, Mill 72, is made up of two components. The “Mill” comes directly from our last name, Miller, and our family’s history of owning and working in a family-owned corn meal mill. The “72” references our Bake Shop & Cafe being located along Manheim’s Route 72.

Here’s a little more behind our story:

Meet Our Team

Family has always been our top priority. We love bringing our family together to create a space for you to connect and enjoy delicious treats.

Meet Melanie

The thought of opening a Bake Shop & Cafe was always in the back of my mind, so when the perfect opportunity presented itself, I went for it.

I come from a family of 8, so I was always helping with the cooking and baking for the family. I have helped host many events in the past years, as well as making desserts for multiple weddings.

I will be overseeing everything at the Bake Shop & Cafe as the Owner/General Manager.

Meet Brian

I am a Principal and Project Engineer at ELA Group, Inc located in Lititz, State College, and Butler, PA. I focus on transportation, municipal and capital improvement projects.

I have used my experience and knowledge from my job to help in the design, approval, and construction of the Bake Shop and Café. I assist at the Bake Shop and Café in my spare time.

Meet Taylor

Hello! My name is Taylor. I am the oldest of the four daughters. My eye for detail has transferred over to a lot of aspects in my life. I attended my local Career and Tech school for cosmetology my senior year of high school and graduated in 2016 with my cosmetology license. 

You can find me developing our social media, as well as managing the front of the cafe serving our guests. Aside from the cafe, I enjoy doing special event hair stylings.

In January 2022, I married my husband, Jaden. He graduated from the Warwick School District and works as a SoftPlan Technician at Quality Design and Drafting in Lititz. We are looking forward to welcoming our first baby due in January 2024.

In September 2021, I married my best friend, Nate. He graduated from ELCO School District in 2016 and now works for Schreiber Lawn & Landscape Maintenance in Lebanon. We are excited to be expecting our first child in January 2024.

I am the part of the technical side of the Bake Shop & Cafe and help with what may be needed in that area.

My favorite drink at the cafe is an iced vanilla latte with vanilla sweet cream foam.
