When we stopped here for dessert the parking lot was full and there was a long line waiting. We just had ice cream the first evening and it was just okay. After seeing the pie they served, we came back the following evening before the rush and had apple pie...it was amazing! The pie was so thick, full of apples... More

We stopped on our way through Custer, and were glad we did! It's a charming little place with unique decor. Service was somewhat slow, but they were busy. We all had paninis, and the tzaziki with the turkey panini was out of this world (and we know tzaziki!). Of course, we had to follow up with pie, so between five... More

If you are in Custer and don't stop at the purple pie place you will have missed out on a little slice of heaven. Wife and I went after a long day of hiking in the park and decided to treat ourselves to a slice of pie. She had blueberry with a scoop of ice cream and I had the... More

We wanted to stop for a snack and spotted this really neat looking place. We pulled in and walked in to order. The chairs are clear acrylic and the entire place looks really "alice in wonderlandish" But pretty neat. Nothing looks very durable but looks cool right now. The pie and ice cream and coffee were really good. We sat... More

We stopped in for ice cream after dinner. The ice cream was Kemps, which is generally good. We tried the Huckleberry, it was very good. Service was good and pricing was good = 3 waffle cones and a small dish of ice cream for $12. The place was full of people enjoying the ice cream and pie. The pies looked... More

Went to a local steakhouse first...got mad at the prices and left. Up the street to this place and what a nice change. Prices were very reasonable, service was friendly and swift & best of all the food was killer. Wife had the chicken pot pie which was very good, I had the French Dip which was very good &... More

The afternoon we went to the Pie place it was very busy, but we were seated quickly and our order taken. I shared a chicken salad sandwich and strawberry salad with my sister and we loved them both. My husband was wanting a piece of banana cream pie and they hadn't made any that day. They told him them make... More

My niece and I had the homemade chicken pot pie and side salad. We sat outside on the patio. Overall experience was lovely! Cute place! Our food was just the right amount for the price. We would have like to have pie but were too full! Next time we'll have pie first!

This place is pretty cool because of obviously the color of the building however I think that they should just stick with pies and things of that nature because their sandwiches and soups are not really great
