The World’s Best Cherry Pie Can Be Found Right Here In Idaho
It really doesn’t get more American than this. Idaho is home to some of the most delectable cherry pie the country has to offer and you’ll definitely want to find it. Hiding out in small town Idaho, this bakery has made a name for itself over the span of two decades. Along with offering the perfect slice of Americana, this bakery is just too quaint for words. You’ll find yourself falling in love with its old-fashioned charm and tight-knit sense of community. If you’re a pie lover and you have yet to visit this place, you’ll want to plan a trip right away!
Emmett is a vibrant little farm town hiding out in Gem County. Home to just 6,557, it's safe to say that Emmett is the perfect representation of small town America. After all, it's here that you'll find the tastiest cherry pie in the nation.
The quaint Blue Ribbon Cafe and Bakery has been around for roughly two decades but it boasts a timeless aspect that you're sure to love. This is the type of place that could
only exist in a small town—a hidden gem that only locals know about.
The bakery is famous for a wide variety of baked goods but nothing comes close to their pies. Made from scratch with love and care, this is what pie should be all about. You should be reminded of home as soon as you take your first bite, and Blue Ribbon does just that.
You can't go wrong with a slice of any of their pies but you'd be remiss if you didn't try out the famous cherry pie. Emmett is famous for its fresh cherries (they even hold an annual Cherry Festival every summer), so of course it's here that you'll find the best cherry pie. Based off of a secret family recipe, the pie comes with a flaky, buttery crust and a decadent fruit filling.
On top of serving up delicious desserts, Blue Ribbon also boasts a fine selection of breakfast and lunch dishes. From sandwiches to steaks, this is the type of home-style cooking that is becoming harder and harder to come across these days.
We're not the only ones that think Blue Ribbon is the perfect small town bakery. It was even featured in the independent movie "Soda Springs" which was released in 2012. The movie was filmed in various locations across the Gem State and this quaint bakery made the cut!
They just don't make 'em like this anymore. These days, grocery stores are becoming the most popular place to pick up a pie when you get that craving. However, nothing will replace the handmade, mouthwatering glory of the pies you can find at a small town bakery like Blue Ribbon.
Blue Ribbon Cafe and Bakery is located at 515 S Washington Ave, Emmett, ID 83617.
