Strawn’s Eat Shop in Shreveport is “home of the ice box pie” and whatever it is they do to pies is pretty magical.
The kids are in the business too, so there are now three Strawn’s in the area with Strawn’s Too and Strawn’s Also.
Here’s the original.
The breakfast is what it’s supposed to be. Straightforward.
Pancakes are pancakes.
Sausage and gravy.
You know how this goes. It’s diner-ish…kinda is what it is…
BUT. THE PIE.
Oh, help. The pie. The piiiiiiiie.
It is so good. The cream is so…well, creamy.
The crust is crisp and perfect and the inside is just yaaaaas.
Their pie is so good that even though it was breakfast, I told the boys they were lucky, because sometimes pie knows no limits. And at 9:30a, it was time for some pie.
They’re best-known for their strawberry pie, but we all decided this day we’d all four share a slice of the chocolate, and that was just fine. Yes. Yes.
