Great News For Pie Lovers
Stauffer’s Cake & Pie Shoppe is opening a second location on March 1st, at N.48th and St. Paul in University Place, giving the beloved locally owned and owner-operated home-cookin’ eatery locations on both ends of 48th Street (the other is just south of S. 48th and Highway 2). It'll be open for breakfast and lunch Monday through Saturdays, with dinner hours likely coming at a later date, once the new locale gets well established.
If you are not already a customer/fan, please do pop in for some good plain Midwestern cooking featuring menu items such as Hot Beef Sandwich, Michigan Salad (spinach, walnuts, dried cherries and local cheese)or a cheeseburger with onion rings. Not to mention made-from-scratch pies with such exotica as gooseberry, chocolate peanut butter and raisin sour cream along with the usual blueberry apple cherry pumpkin. In the immortal words of Bob Dylan, Oh me, oh my, love that country pie.
And when you come in please say hello, I'll be working as a part-time host there six days a week, over the lunch rush! We expect a real warm welcome from north Lincoln. (That street corner has really needed a good mom'n pop diner, hasn't it?)
