We ate dinner here one evening and after having read the reviews, we were not disappointed. The food, salads and sandwiches, was excellent! My husband would recommend ordering the chicken pot pie. I had the panini and enjoyed it. There are many choices of pie on the menu. We ordered 4 different types and they were all outstanding! Service was... More

We were active the two days we were in Custer, visiting the different sites in the area, so we never had the opportunity to go in, order pie, and enjoy it on the spot. The first time we were able to stop by, we ordered a piece of peanut butter pie for my husband who doesn't like fruit pie and... More

We sat in the front since we only had pie and ice cream. The back part of the restaurant is for sit down meals. The atmosphere and decor in the front are both colourful and interesting. Lovely use of the pink and purple pastels. The apple and cherry pie we ordered a la mode was absolutely huge. Almost too big.... More

What a disappointment ! We planned our visit according to the hours on the web site. Pulled in and lights were in and OPEN sign on, only to find chairs on tables. Walked to back dining room and girl was stacking chairs there as well. She said they closed the kitchen at 7 pm. Uh Thanks! So I told her... More

This being the end of the season we close at 7:00 pm as do most of the restaurants in the area. During the season our restaurant is open until 8:00 pm and the Ice Cream Parlor and Pie are open until 9:00 pm. One of the advantages of coming this late in the season there are no crowds or lines...

The variety of pies on sale is good, I opted for a slice to take away. An average price of $4.50 per slice, it was freshly made, tasted good and was full of fruit. The service was OK...a smile would work!

The pies are all superlative. My favorite are the cream pies, particularly the sour cream and raisin (if they have it -- ask if you don't see it on the board). The ice cream is also very good -- for a real treat try the banana split: just like they used to make them. They have a nice lunch service... More

Needed a sweet after touring Mount Rushmore. This purple house in Custer serves homemade pie, fast service right at the counter, We split a piece of cherry pie, a good choice as the servings are huge, but declined the a la mode option.Lots of choices for tea as well as pie and ice cream, and the friendly hostess brought us...

This ice cream shop was directly across from our motel, so we had to visit for a cool treat during our stay. You can't miss the entirely purple house, along with the purple pig statue in front! Once you get past the front door, they serve really big scoops of really good ice cream. What more can you ask for?

Stopped for pie. Ordered a Bumble-berry & Rhubarb. The Bumble-berry also had rhubarb in which was a surprise. Both the Rhubarb & Bumble-berry were tart which is to be expected with Rhubarb, but eating alone without ice cream would not had been a treat. Since we had ice cream, it helped cut the tartness. If you like a big pie... More

Got a nice size serving for fair price, not a big variety but I'm sure everyone can find something they like. Also had homemade pie and few other things. Nice outside seating so could take our dog.
