  • I’ve been to this place twice while at Capital Reef National Park. The first time I had a mixed berry pie. I wasn’t too certain about getting another one the next at, but after doing both the Hickman Bridge Trail and the Cassity Arch Trail, it was an easy choice for a strawberry rhubarb pie…along with some ice cream :-)
  • My dad's best friends house when they were growing up in the 1930-40's
  • Delicious pies and bread. They also have ice cream and some really nice picnic tables to relax on.
  • Pies. Bought and consumed. Meh. People are super nice.
  • Not sure if the pies are so good because of the hiking I did before I ate it or it is just good... Either way I really enjoy the Apple pie and the peach pie (I only tasted the peach, I didn't eat two).
