Crust is what makes a pie. But the filling is important too. We gather local fruit and nuts in season. Or try our savory fillings for Breakfast or Lunch. Quiche and Pot Pies are also made with the same tasty crust. Whole Pies are made fresh when you call to place your order.
Pancakes, Farm Fresh Eggs, Homemade Bread toasted with our fresh jams for Breakfast. Our sandwiches are always served on our fresh baked bread and rolls. Chicken and Dumplings, Meatloaf and Quiche are customer favorites. We often serve the sampler that includes our homegrown pickled beets, green tomato bread and butter pickles or carrot salad.
Whole Pies are made fresh to order.
Comfort Food with Local Roots
Availability, creativity and invention are what we use to develop our menu. The same skills our ancestors used to feed themselves and their families. Growing up as children of parents raised during the Great Depression and Word War II we made due and lived on a tight budget. We ate things grown in our own garden, made jam and jelly, gave gifts made with our own hands. Things that are trending now were just how we lived.
We were honored to be included in the Rural Missourian’s Out of the Way Eats in September of 2013. Reviews in local newspapers and state magazines have brought us many new visitors.
Our building, the original Bank of Pocahontas, MO opened in 1910 and has served many purposes since it’s closing in 1938. These include a draft office during WWII, an insurance office even an apartment with a bedroom in the bank vault.
Visit us Wednesday – Saturday 9:00 – 2:00. Groups of 4 or more please call ahead. Whole Pies should be ordered by phone to ensure you get your favorite flavor.
