Is it the best pie in the city?
If you’ve never been to Paris Coffee Shop on West Magnolia in Ft. Worth you should go…on a Saturday morning when you can get a bacon, eggs and a biscuit breakfast…and take home a pie for the weekend.
This is one of my favorite pies in the city…the same family has been serving up slices of “dee-li-cious” pie at the Paris Coffee Shop for more than 80 years.
Coconut cream and chocolate are their best sellers…but my favorite is lemon, which they only have on Friday. Mine usually doesn’t last through Saturday. Second on my list is the egg custard…or maybe the cherry, warmed up with a scoop of Blue Bell ice cream on top.
They serve breakfast every day…eggs, corned beef hash, bacon, porkchops, french toast to die for, waffles and pancakes…and Texas size biscuits and gravy.
But I usually go…for the pie.
What’s your favorite pie in the city? And where do you go to buy it? Tell me ’cause I’d like to go.
P.S. If you see Mike, tell him Jane said hi!
I love Paris Coffee Shop’s pies, but I also like anything that Dixie House serves up! They have pies and cakes made fresh daily. Delicious!
There’s not a pie I ever met I didn’t like Margo:) Best, Jane
Emporium Pies in the Bishop Arts area is incredible. Their to-go containers are pretty unique as well, putting a slice in a small woven basket.
Sounds interesting Michael, I’ll have to try that. Thanks!
I recently traveled to Marble Falls to run in a 10K race. Why? For pie! Pie at the finish line by Bluebonnet Café. I chose pecan because it’s my favorite and two because I consider myself a pecan pie aficionado. After running 6.2 miles you might think anything would taste good, but this pie was awesome! The filling had great texture which is the secret to a good pecan pie. Firm filling that’s not curdley like cottage cheese. D-lish. Check out Bluebonnet Café in Marble Falls on your next road trip!
Oh my gosh! If i get near a pecan pie, it’s gone Mark!
in the dfw area, I agree – Paris Coffee Shop is toughs, if not impossible to beat. Take a weekend drive to Hico, and try the pie at the Koffee Kup Kafe! Interesting story on the name of the establishment too!
That sounds fun Denice, Thank you, Jane
Paris coffee shop, i agree has got the best coconut pie i found so far!
Hands down Karen!
Coconut Cream pie at The Lunch Box! My favorite! Paris Coffee Shop coconut cream is my second favorite!
I will have to try The Lunch Box Betty. Thanks, Jane
Thanks for the pie tip Jane!
I’ll have to check it out.
Your friend Mike is a hero!:)
The plaque reads:
“For providing extraordinary service and effort to save the life of a Fort Worth Police Officer, T. York, on August 7, 2013.”
“Mike, you’re a hero. Thank you,” Halstead said before a round of applause filled the restaurant.
Thank you Mike, did now know that, Jane
Thanks for sharing this information. I’m going to check with them to see if they can make my Thanksgiving pies. I’ll be driving in from Possum Kingdom Lake. Thanks!
Great Crystal! I just polished off the last of the coconut and it was yummy:)
The best pie Roy and I ever had was the coconut mini pie at Del Frisco’s Grille in downtown Fort Worth. Unreal. The little round pie has a crisp coconut crust! Unreal as something that is different and special. They treat you if it is a special occasion.
