Some of you might know this is a Marie Callendar’s just ‘cause you go there so often for pies. Check out the site: http://www.mcpies.com/about_us/ . Marie Callendar began her commercial culinary experience doing pies, and practice makes perfect. This is my favorite pie shop in San Diego County. Every one I talk to about a favorite pie talks Marie Callendar’s.
The best pie comes when the fruit is at peak season. That is true no matter who’s baking. But, if you want to experience something near existential, try a Marie Callendar peach pie at peak season, which is coming up any day now.
Peak season on peaches isn’t quite yet, I only know because I ate one of her pies just the other day and it wasn’t a heavenly experience. I suppose I’ll just have to try again next week. Of course then I’ll try the apple and after that the berries. Really do try fruit pies over the next couple of months. Let me know if you find one better than the ones at Marie’s. (I’m still at email@example.com).
The other thing I found to be well worth honorable mention from this location is the Sunday brunch. It was also wonderful. This place is priced right, with good service, and has a very nice atmosphere. It’s well worth a long drive for a pleasant Sunday grazing session at the brunch.
Good eating, and remember to enjoy a treat once in a while but eat healthy most of the time and with plenty of exercise, you’ll avoid being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
