Positives: good pie, historic area, casual atmosphere
Negatives: limited selection, limited parking
Historic downtown Glen Rose, Texas, is a great place to explore on a sunny Saturday afternoon. Walking around the courthouse, visiting the museum, and shopping, can generate an appetite.
Fortunately, several specialty restaurants are available to fill visitor's tummies with good eats.
We'd done the things mentioned above and were ready for a break. My wife saw Pie Peddlers as we were shopping, and asked to go in. It was a good choice.
Keep your eyes open if you visit. Because it's in the middle of the block, Pie Peddlers blends with other stores. A smallish sign on the canopy can be seen from the courthouse lawn, but not much further.. As you draw closer, signs on windows become more visible. A portable sign on the Barnard Street (the main thoroughfare) invites motorist to detour half-a-block for a snack.
Inside, the place is spacious, clean, and homey. Everyone seemed to be having a good time, including the staff. The owner was very friendly and informative.
Pie is available whole or by the slice. The daily menu listed a eleven flavors, but only six were in the showcase. What they had on hand looked wonderful.
We chose a slice of pecan to share. The pecans on top were fresh and the crust was flaky. The filling was thinner than we were accustomed to...it spread over our plate. However, it had perfect flavor.
Overall, this was one of the best "pie shops" we've had the pleasure of visiting anywhere, and look forward to stopping in again. Be sure to check current hours online before going. Like a lot of places in Glen Rose, they are closed various days during the week.
