Café in St. Paul

My mother-in-law is on a quest. Ever since I’ve known her—14 years or so—she has been on a mission to locate the best, most delicious holiday pies. She’s tried out various restaurants, bakeries and caterers, but hasn’t yet found a winner for her favorite pumpkin pie.

I know that she’ll be thrilled to hear that Black Bear Crossings Café and Banquet Center offers Pam’s homemade pies for the holidays. Whether you like traditional pumpkin, apple or pecan, or want to mix things up with cherry, blueberry, banana cream, coconut cream or lemon supreme, this café in St. Paul has the right pie to top off your Thanksgiving feast. But you do need to plan ahead—be sure to order your pie at least one week before Thanksgiving. Decide what flavor you’d like and call by November 14 to reserve your homemade holiday pie. Just call 651-488-4920×116 to order yours!
