Summers are made for road trips, and pies are the perfect summer dessert, so why not combine the two with a massive pie journey around the Texas Hill Country.

Begin up north in Georgetown with Monument Cafe’s magnificent chocolate pied, trek out to Marble Falls for Blue Bonnet Cafe’s fluffy meringues, veer through Austin for some itsy-bitsy options from Tiny Pies, loop out into Fredericksburg for seasonal fruit pies featured Fredericksburg Pie Company, venture into the far west direction for Lost Maples Cafe’s varieties in Utopia, and so on.

For more pie, check out Austin’s best takes, as well as the city’s outstanding bakeries. Explore the rest of the Hill Country, from restaurants to barbecue spots.

The latest CDC guidance for vaccinated diners during the COVID-19 outbreak is here; dining out still carries risks for unvaccinated diners and workers. Please be aware of changing local rules, and check individual restaurant websites for any additional restrictions such as mask requirements. Find a local vaccination site here.

Blue Bonnet Cafe

This charming Marble Falls restaurant is so serious about pie, from the stellar meringues (the lemon is excellent) to fruit-jammed ones to even an apple made without added sugar. While it’s a bit out of the way, it’s a worthy stop along the road trip. The restaurant is open for dine-in and call-ahead curbside pickups. Pickup orders for entire pies can be made in advance.

Pie portions can be hefty, so might as well make one of those servings a tiny one. Not just a gimmick, these small pies are made with well-sourced ingredients by the mother/daughter team. Pickup and delivery orders can be placed online; there are additional locations down on South Lamar and in Westlake.
