Yes, Marie Callendars
has a lot more going for it than the frozen grocery pies and entrees. It is a rather large chain, mainly in the Western USA. Noted for its bakery (Pies) for eat-in and Take-out. Here is the website, check the pie menu...It is larger than Baker's Square, and I think Bakers Square pies are pretty good too.
I just learned from their website that last year the M C company merged with Perkins Family Restaurants although the "brand" names of the two companies remains as they are. There are 139 M. C. Restaurant and bakeries.
Each February M.C.'s holds its annual Pie Sale...any pie on the menu for $5. We used to go in and get half-dozen. Chocolate Silks
, and Lemon Sour-creams
. Great eating !! The fruit pies (double or lattice-crust) were great also, but the fresh fruit (in season) pies were absolutely the best. Peach Melba
topped my list with fresh peach slices piled high and dozens of Raspberries sprinkled all over the 'gel'. These are full-sized pies, not the "junior edition".
BTW, The regular menu food was ok...But it was the pies that drew us to the place. Here is the link to their website http://www.mcpies.com/
