Pie Town, New Mexico

Hi there. Just saw a wonderful story about Pie Town on CBS Sunday Morning. It looks exactly like the kind of place I need to visit some day.

I did a search an found a thread that talked about Pie Town in an ancillary way (it was about winter camping).

Has anyone been? Tell us about it! For now, I can have my experience vicariously through your story :-)

Too funny, I'm in the middle of watching the show too..............as well as surfing the Forums. I guess there are more people who love this show every Sunday Morning

Not quite a rustic but the Montana Bread Factory is worth a stop.

Hi Howie,

Where is the Montana Bread Factory? I tried to look it up online but couldn't find it. We're headed out that way this winter. Thanks!

It's an interesting stop on Hwy 60. Also the Very Large Array is located on the way and there is a nice campground in Datil, NM

Looks like it was the Prairie Schooner Cafe at exit 274. Turns out my wife logs are better than my memory.

We've driven that road many times, very nice! There was a nice R.V. park across the road from the Great Array, not sure if it's open any more.

I stopped in to Pie town about a month ago. Pulled in to have lunch in a pie restaurant located near the top of a hill on the north side of 60.
. Staffed by the most spirited crew of awesome women. Really good food, Plus a local band of musician warming up for a upcoming gig. In an adjoining room.

They had a neat little booklet about the history of Pie town. And its founder's struggle to convince the near by postmaster to accept the name as legit when they applied for a post office to be established for the town.

Really worth while stop in spot.

Cheers Richard
