In Search of Pie

As you can see, there really isn't much more there than a handful of houses, a water tower, a sawmill,
a couple of churches, Fairgrounds and ......

The Tall Tales Cafe          

Quite a place, eh? Yes, looks can and will be deceiving. They pump your gas for you. The local Post Office is housed there. You can buy your weekly allotment of Lottery tickets and milk and bread in a pinch... And.... they have a restaurant! Looking at this counter, you might think um, do I have to?

Behind this unassuming facade works a real chef! Turning out meals that are mouthwatering and just down right yummy and priced well for your pocketbook too. On Sundays he features corned beef hash and you know how I feel about my hash!

But do you know what else they specialize in?  Pie! On any given day they will have the blackboard written up with any number of selections. I've seen cherry cream offered and sweet potato.......

My mom always had to have a little pie after a meal out. Her favorite was pumpkin and so that is my choice. Three scoops of creamy vanilla ice cream no less and some hot, freshly brewed coffee, bottomless cup of course and what a snack it was! 

In my search for a great pie I will go to great lengths and this restaurant proves you can't judge a book by it's cover!

I will continue my quest for pie nationwide. Who knows where next I might go!

I have never heard of cherry cream pie...sounds luscious!

So I'd have to guess that little place is actually 'downtown'. Don't blink or you'll miss it!

They say those small hole in the wall places are the best. Judging by that pie and ice cream I'd have to agree!

Thank you for stopping by.

The pie looks wonderful. I love little out of the way places where the food tastes good and is easy on the pocketbook.

My mouth waters just looking at your pie. I’m ready to drive to that restaurant – is it far from Atlanta, Ga.? would that be a long drive ?

Wallacetown, Ontario would be about 14 hours almost straight north of Georgia and only about an hour and a half north east of Detroit, Michigan! It wouldn't take long....?
