Bobkat’s Purple Pie Place

Pie’s the thing here — bumbleberry and rhubarb are especially good — but there is a dining room in back and a pre-pie menu of sandwiches, soup, chili, and barbecue.

The remarkable exterior of Purple Pie Place caught our eye as we passed by on the main road. We decided to see if this could become our own Roadfood find, and it was.

The pie case groaned under the weight of so many kinds of pies: rhubarb (the most popular), apple, cherry, blueberry, strawberry-rhubarb, peach, and our favorite–bumbleberry (a mixture of many fruits). We bought a whole pie to eat over the course of several days in our little RV. On first bite, the crust was flaky, buttery, and delicate. After a few days in the fridge (and it didn’t last more than two-and-a-half days), the crust was still delicious. It held up. The filling of rhubarb, apple, strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries was a marvelous blend of sweet and tart, with just the right thickness. We were heartbroken to eat the last piece for breakfast.
