It’s easy to miss some of the local shops at Smith Mountain Lake, tucked away in plazas and out-of-the-way places. One of the more creative as far as its name goes is The Mouse Trap at Bridgewater Plaza. The shop offers a broad selection of meats, subs, fresh bread, and bagels. They also have an interesting array of local, domestic, and imported wines and beers.
And then of course there is a large variety of cheeses to pick from, hence their name. You can call in orders ahead of time at (540) 721-4997 or take your meal and enjoy it at one of their outdoor lakefront tables if the weather is right.
Besides food, they carry many unique jewelry and gift ideas. They create custom gift baskets, party trays, and many other items of interest. So next time you are at Bridgewater Plaza, be sure to poke your head in and say hello at The Mouse Trap.
