Pie Town Cafe moving to new Shenandoah location #EatShopLiveLocal

Nestled in the middle of Shenandoah’s Portofino Shopping Center is Pie Town Cafe where the Loggins family has been serving pies to the community for 16 years.
As a child, Debra Loggins loved visiting local “mom and pop” bakeries and enjoying the decadent pies and desserts with her family. Years later, married with a family of her own, she still fondly remembered these wonderful trips and now dreamed of opening a shop of her very own.
In 2001, the Loggins family – Debra, her husband Mike, and their three children (all under the age of 5!) – decided to turn their dreams into a reality and open Pie Town Cafe.
Pie Town Cafe opened in the shopping center and was the first to offer food service with 8 signature pie flavors, ice cream and drinks. With the great support of the community, family and friends, the Loggins’ delicious pies and delights flew off the shelves. Due to demand, the menu quickly expanded to include more than 35 pie flavors (50+ flavors during the holidays), sandwiches and more food choices.
Pie Town Cafe offers 10 inch and personal size pies with coconut cream and chocolate cream being popular flavors year-round and pumpkin and pecan pie during the holidays.
Their recipes are old fashioned, family and staff tested and approved, use butter with no lard, and goods are baked fresh every day. The family has made pies together from scratch alongside baker Carlos Reyes who has over 36 years of baking experience – with 16 of those years working at Pie Town Cafe. Together the Loggins family and staff members have enjoyed serving the community and now have the opportunity to grow and expand at a new location.
After 16 years of calling the Portofino location “home”, Pie Town Cafe will be closing after July 8th and re-open September 2017 in a new larger location just a short distance away at 19285 David Memorial Drive by the Shenandoah Visitor Center and behind Home Depot.
Family members and staff are excited about about the transition together from the current 1200 sq. ft. shop to new 3000 sq. ft. location with indoor seating increasing from 24 to now serve 50 guests at a time. The Loggins will continue to serve their famous family pies plus new menu items like homemade fudge, fresh baked breads (jalapeño cheddar and parmesan loaves), cakes, floats, coffee drinks, and more. Dessert inspired and themed merchandise, serving dishes, candles and other goods will also be available for purchase.
Before the big move, Pie Town Cafe will offer a certificate for free 10 inch pie to visitors from July 1 through July 4, 2017 that can be redeemed at their new location this fall.
