Lea’s Lunchroom, Lecompte Louisiana

Last week when we were in Lecompte, we stopped in at Lea’s (pronounced “Lee’s”) Lunchroom, which has been in business since 1928, for a slice of pie. Lecompte is the pie capital of Louisiana – they have a pie festival now too – and Lea’s is supposed to be *the* place.

Av ordered the chocolate pie and I tried the coconut pie. They were both good – the meringue was especially nice – but neither of them were really flavored enough…the chocolate wasn’t chocolate-y enough, and the coconut wasn’t coconut-y enough. Lots of other people sure do like it, though – maybe we should have gone with the pecan or a fruit pie.
