It may not be even close to the beaten path, but the folks at Ventris Trail's End Resort on Beaver Lake know what they're doing. Six years ago they opened a little cafe inside the main lodge of the resort. Decorated in white and red, the place sports burgers and lunches and even wine and beer.
But your goal, should you choose to accept it, is to drive out down the peninsula from Garfield, off the paved road and out onto the tendril of a peninsula, climb the stairs and eat here. And when you go, get a pie. The crust is delicate and handmade, and the pies come in a variety of sorts -- from coconut cream and banana cream to delights such as those posted here.
The upper photo shows the peach pie and the strawberry rhubarb pie. The lower one showcases the peach pie. This isn't from a can, that's for sure. It's seasonal peaches. How can you tell? One is by texture -- there's a certain slight stringy consistency to local handpicked peaches you don't get from cling peaches. Two is by color -- look at the pinking. That comes from the bit around the pit.
How's it taste? Heavenly. A perfect early summer pie.
