Restaurant details
Reviewed January 25, 2013

In a small shop on Main Street in the town of Blackwater, MO, you will find the central gathering place for town residents in tourists, drinking coffee and eating homemade pie. The center of attention is Imogene, a 92-year-old bundel of energy, who bakes 12-15 pies every weekend for her guests while filling her small shop with laughter and stories. Traditional favorites -- apple, cherry, peach, lemon meringue, coconut custard -- join with creative newcomers to provide a full menu of delicious pies. Add a large scoop of vanilla ice cream for a delicious afternoon treat. Allow time to chat with Imogena and browse her collection of handmade aprons, bags and bedspreads. Pies are only sold a piece at a time because she wants to get to know her customers. Open year round with plenty of table space, but crowded during the concert season at Arrow Rock, a small adjoining town. Drop into Blackwater on your trip on I-70 for a memorable experience.
