“Best pie ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

The servings of pie are huge - that's why they cost $4.25 a slice. We tried the apple and bumbleberry pie with ice cream and the banana cream pie - all were delicious. Very fun atmosphere.

“Look forward to the Purple Pie Place every time I go to S.D.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

The pies and ice cream are a treat that I look forward to each time I go to South Dakota. The pies are the most scrumptious home-made pies you can find anywhere, and the ice cream is delicious. The staff is wonderful and the indoor and outdoor spaces are fantastic. The price is right, too! LOVE this place

“Yummy Pie”

What a fun place. Not only is the pie and ice cream yummy, the colors and atmosphere enhance the overall experience. Loved it and ended up visiting 4 times in the 5 days we were in the area

“lunch”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Stopped in for early lunch on Sunday. No salad bar avaiiable. Had barbecue pork sandwich on a cold bun with potato salad. Staff nice but slow. Went to location based on high ranking. Guess the high ranking was for pie/ice cream couldn't be for food.

We are sorry you were unable to enjoy our salad bar. As the weather changes so does our menu demand for salad. The advantages of no lines to wait in at the end of the season is off set by limited lunch selection. We do however maintain a large selection of homemade pies.
