We were the last in the door before they closed and felt a bit rushed but the pie was pretty good. There is a long list of yes of pies...so this is pie lovers heaven. I'm more of a cake girl.

Stumbled across this adorable spot while driving between Sites in the area. Found Real strawberry-rhubarb pie, not the icky version I usually see with plasticky strawberry glaze. And good coffee. We found our way back two more times before leaving this area after a week of sightseeing- a real meal one time but more pie the other. I love this... More

I am a great cook and I make wonderful pies but if I lived here I would never bake another pie ! The Brambleberry was more than wonderful ! The crust was perfect as was the filling.

This small restaurant serves more than deserts, but their pie is outstanding. Our group had large slices of strawberry/rhubarb, peach and bumbleberry (a mix of several different berries) pies and all were excellent especially with a scoop of ice cream. The bumbleberry was particularly notable. If we were local I would have bought a whole pie to take home. Service... More

We each ordered a piece of pie with coffee and ice cream. Service was slow and not very friendly. Don't know I would go out of my way to go there again. It was about 3 in the afternoon and not that busy..

We wanted something casual and quick for dinner, and this place fit the bill. It's a small place, so plan to wait a little if you have a large group. We enjoyed sandwiches (hot and cold), and of course the pie. The bumbleberry pie with a mix of berries was delicious - warmed and topped with ice cream. The apple... More

This little hole in the wall stop shouldn't be missed. The food is excellent and pie is delicious. We usually try different places while traveling but went to this place 3 times. It's simply that good. Don't miss it.

Great pies, friendly service. We had takeout sandwiches that were tasty. Enjoyed the strawberry and rhubarb pie. The owner was there and was quite friendly and talkative.
