Can not really comment on the quality of the ice cream in this place since it is Blue Bunny Ice Cream, not a local or home made ice cream; a bit disappointed since I was hope to try local made ice cream. However, this place got some interesting pie selection, and quality of the pie is quite good. The décor... More

The pie/ice cream room and dining room are separate. We ate in the dining room and ordered from a limited menu. The sandwiches were very good and the chicken pie was delicious. We opted for desert afterwards and the pie was very good as well. Service was not the best. One wait staff for the entire room and I wasn't... More

Came here especially as pie lovers! Saw reviews and photos on Internet and thought it looked good. Just been for dinner and had 3 different slices of pie between us - cherry, peach & rhubarb. They were all divine and with such a charming setting. Was served by the lady who makes the pies- made it feel like you were... More

We came on a whim, and left overly satisfied. Their slices of pie are huge and delicious, and the ice cream is great too. You will leave with a smile on your face and very happy belly!

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. If your passing through stop and get a piece- even if your not hungry, you'll thank me later. And if you live here... More

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
