After spending a year on the east side of the Shelbyville Public Square, the Shelbyville Sweet Shoppe has moved and is now open on the west side of the square in the Gunter Building.

"We really outgrew our space at the old location," said Jim Overcast, who along with co-owner Michelle Hastings will have the Sweet Shoppe in half of the building and will add the Riverview Bistro to the other half.

"We now have more room for our kitchen and can offer a better selection of food with the Bistro. We will still offer what he had with the sweet shop but we will now have a breakfast, lunch and supper menu on the Bistro side."

A traditional breakfast menu will be offered when the doors are opened at 7 a.m. The lunch and supper will feature soups and salads until the doors close at 7 p.m.

"We are going to add live music upstairs above the Bistro on Saturday nights," added Hastings. "And our featured sandwich will be a sliced hot dog sandwich in honor of Caperton Drug Store, which occupied the building at one time and offered the same sandwich."

The business will offer free WiFi and will hold a grand opening in September.

There is parking in front of the 105 West Side of the Square location and in the rear of the building also.
