Southern Living's Texas Top 10 Places for Pie
Oxbow Bakery and Antiques and the Lost Maples CafeTwo other pie bakeries I am fond of in the Lone Star State are Oxbow Bakery and Antiques in Palestine TX and the Lost Naples Cafe in Utopia TX. Plus they are great places to view view spring dogwoods in bloom and fall color while cutting into that slice. Both dogwoods and fall leaf change are rare in Houston, so I'm willing to make a drive to experience them. Palestine is known for its steam engines that you can take for a day-trip and tour a train museum.
