Sweet potato almond streusel.

We found pies in diners, at drive-ins, within truck stops and on buffet lines.  In Hot Springs, one of those great pies came at a coffee shop with attitude.

Java Primo is a jamming joint out on Central Avenue about halfway between the bypass and Lake Hamilton. Its baristas can make a mean Americano, and the sandwiches are prime.

And then there's this unusual pie.  It's a sweet potato pie, but it's balanced out with not only a crumbly streusel top but a caramel syrup pool of connection.  The salty crust and the thickly spiced sweet potato brings it together as a sweet and marvelous almost-meal.
