It’s not exactly in Austin. In fact it took us about an hour to get to Marble Falls. But after our berry picking at Sweet Berry Farm, we headed over to the Blue Bonnet Cafe for lunch…and of course, pie.
We had spotted the sign on the way into town. My daughter and I are suckers for diners, and this one was well worth the stop.
Think small town diner. Friendly people. Huge servings. And then there was the pie. We debated over and over as we looked at the choices. In the end, I got chocolate meringue and my daughter opted for the coconut cream. Mine arrived with a good 4″ of meringue over a rich chocolate filling. Hers was the kind of creamy yellow that speaks of eggs and whole milk. Both were delicious!
If you’re anywhere near Marble Falls, this is a place you need to try. After over 80 years in business, they have it down perfectly — how many places can say that?
A couple of notes…Pie Happy Hour will net you a beverage and a slice of pie for $3.00. And bring cash…this is a no credit card establishment.
