The Perfect Blend Shortbread Company is located in a lovely, 162-year old brick building located between the Main Street National Historic District and the Cornell College National Historic District within Mount Vernon, Iowa. For over 20 years we have been making our special shortbread cookies for our customers and tourists who love to visit our picturesque college town.

Our patrons also appreciate our “perfect blend” of shops located within our own walls. On our second floor, Ben & Flo’s yarn shop offers beautiful yarns and gifts as well as wonderful original paintings by the owner, Marty Mitchell.

In 2012, we opened First Brick Art Gallery & Antiques, featuring local artists and crafts people. Tourists also enjoy our gift shop area and the interesting antiques we have for sale throughout the building.

We hope you’ll come to Mount Vernon for our wonderful shortbread and stay to enjoy all we have to offer.  Welcome!
