Pie is the #1 reason to come eat in the town of Marble Falls, a Hill Country community in the Highland Lakes area that has become a magnet for boaters, hikers, campers, swimmers, water skiers, and fishermen. But about that pie: obey the sign above the dining area of the Blue Bonnet Cafe that says, TRY SOME PIE. About eight or ten different kinds are available every day, plain or a la mode. Apple and pecan are wonderful, but the Blue Bonnet headliner is peanut butter cream. Smooth and devilishly rich, topped with a thick layer of white cream, it is brilliantly complemented by ribbons of dark chocolate sauce. Beyond pie, Marble Falls has an inordinate number of culturally diverse restaurants that make visitors happy. You can stroll among them downtown, and if the need for caffeine in a laid-back setting strikes, head out to Numinous Coffee Roasters just off the main road. Numinous, which looks like a country home, goes beyond its coffee-drink menu to bake its own pastries, rosemary sourdough bread, and pizzas with a sourdough crust. Oh, and by the way, slightly south of town in Spicewood is Opie’s BBQ — an unforgettable source of brisket, ribs, butter beans, and creamy-dreamy banana pudding made with shortbread cookies instead of Nilla Wafers.
