In Search Of Pie: Welaka!

Oh Yes! You didn't think I'd forget my old friend pie did you?

Welaka! A new found favorite spot in what those who know all call "Old Florida"!
 I think perhaps a few hundred folks live in the village limits, but this little bar / restaurant seems to have it all goin' on!

Just check out this sign!

 Num! Num! Num!
 One of the weekly specials is the 17 shrimp dinner. Yes, 17 shrimp (and big ones too!) cooked however you want, fries, hush puppies and the always present southern coleslaw! Get this: $9.95!

 Unassuming, just like I like 'em!

Nothing fancy, but clean as a whip. The locals flock here and we ate here many times during our stay, each time delicious!
 They also have free WIFI and so our laptop was always with us.

They sell T-Shirts and great food and see there in the front? A pie counter!

....And when you go to Florida, isn't it a given that you eat Key Lime Pie?

 They have a local woman  who makes all the desserts, including peanut butter pie and a frosted strawberry cake I had to order one day too!

The crumbs you see stuck to my filling were from an oreo cookie cheesecake!

Never the less, this dessert was scrumptious with a nice flaky pastry and tart-ish filling and because Dick doesn't like Key Lime Pie, I got to eat the whole darned thing! YaaY!

I would definitely recommend it!

All of these photos were again shot and loaded directly from my Nikon P90 and then posted without alteration of any kind.

Our kind of place ... I'd never leave for the peanut butter pie!

Hope you had a wonderful & joyful Easter.

Have a beautiful week.

You had me at pie! Hubby is from Florida, but we have not been back in awhile.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

Oh my, you lucky thing. Shrimp and Keylime Pie both at the same place. How absolutely heavenly!

Yum Yum Yum - Just one question - What are Hush puppies? Over here they are a make of shoes and I don't think you have been chewing on some old boot!
