The Stockholm Pie Company is located on the corner of Spring Street and WI Highway 35 in the tiny village of Stockholm, WI, Population 82 or 97 depending on which sign you read. What makes it special is that everything is made from scratch.
The Stockholm Pie Company offers several different varieties of pies and several flavors in each category. The serve fruit and nut pies, cream pies, some seasonal offerings, and also savory pies, pot pies, and quiches.
It is a tiny, narrow storefront in the old General Store building, originally across the street from it’s present location. There’s room for maybe a dozen people inside. You walk up to the counter and choose your pie from the chalkboard on the wall. There is a counter inside where you can sit and enjoy your pie. We chose to sit outside at a table a chairs on the front porch. It is the perfect perch to watch life go by. We saw dozens of bikers and bicyclists on their way down the Great River Road.
There are so many pies to choose from, it is difficult to not order a slice of everything. We tried a fruit pie and a cream pie to get a good sample. I wanted to order a Sausage/Apple/Cheddar Cheese savory pie, but didn’t think I’d have room.
The triple berry pie is make with a blend of strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. The crust is tender and flaky and makes a really nice counterpoint to the tartness of the filling. The slices are a generous size and you can always get it ala mode.
The peanut butter fudge pie was think and creamy with a layer of fudge on the bottom and peanut butter cream on top. It is drizzled with fudge sauce and chopped peanuts. This thing is RICH — perfect to split for dessert. I had a nice hot cup of coffee and Liz had a glass of milk. We were both delighted at how good it all tasted.
They take special orders and you can buy frozen pies to take home and bake. They will also ship 2 of their most polular pies — Apple Crisp and Caramel Apple Crunch.
Would we go back? Honestly, I kinda wish i was there now eating another piece of pie and watching the world go by. It takes about an hour and 15 minutes to get there from Saint Paul, but take your time and stop a the many overlooks and the couple of small towns along the way. It is a great way to spend the day.
