Pie Town Café & Dessert Shop's menu delights hungering hordes with a bevy of sandwiches, made-from-scratch soups, and an assortment of more than 30 homemade pies. Belly-warming spoonfuls of baked-potato soup topped with cheese, bacon, and chives snuggle in a french-bread boule ($6.95), as does the homemade chicken-and-roasted-pecan salad ($6.95). Like an eager pinch-hitter, cheese and fresh-baked breads wait on the sidelines to be substituted for any meal, and sandwiches buddy-up with potato salad or chips. Hush growls of hunger with the smoked-turkey-and-gouda sandwich ($6.95) or veggie wrap ($6.95), and dupe dehydration with a variety of coffee or lattes.
Diners can also assuage a sweet tooth with a variety of made-from-scratch pies, including cream, fruit, sugar-free, and seasonal varieties.

Pie Town's strawberry- and homemade vanilla-crème-filled signature pie, topped with fresh strawberries, a strawberry glaze, and whipped cream ($15) harkens back to olden days when country pies roamed free.
