Mmmmmm mmmm mmmmmmm

Pies are really good as well as the food. The food is very fairly priced. I have been here several times over the course of three years as a seasonal employee in the area. The food and service has consistently been great.

While traveling this place was recommended to us for pie. There were 4 of us, only 3 of us had pie the other had a hot fudge sundae. The Apple pie was "good" but the berry pies left a lot to be desired - not very fresh especially the blackberry piece. The customer service was less than friendly - we... More

A perfect meal for lunch. We also had the strawberry rhubarb pie, and it was the most delicious pie I've had in a very long time! The ice cream was... More

Done up so 'cute!!' We were in Custer State Park and drove over to Custer just to check out some of the town. We were looking for ice cream and stumbled upon the Purple Pie Place. Our ice cream (one cup, one cone) was delicious (hand dipped), but so surprised to see TEN different kinds of pie, and only $2.49... More

We happened to be driving around the area and went into the town of Custer. We noticed this purple house with the word "Pie" on it, so we stopped for lunch. We were lucky there was a table available - the place is not very big. The menu showed various comfort foods and different types of pies. We ordered the... More
