Awesome pies and great ice cream!

Bobkat's Purple Pie Place does have food options and they aren't bad, but there is no doubt that the pies are the star of the show here. My favorite is the "Bumbleberry," which appears to me a "mashup" of whatever is on hand, blueberry, apple, rhubarb, etc. They grow rhubarb fresh on the property.

The staff at Bobkat's are always friendly and give good service. They always have a good selection of pies that are consistently excellent. I would have given a 5 star rating if their lunch menu had more variety. I have a hard time finding something I like on the lunch menu but I'm a bit of a picky eater. I... More
