When Betty's father Aleck built a fish shack by the Stewart River on Highway 61. Betty thought it would be a good idea to have some goodies for the fishermen when they stopped in, so she started making donuts and coffee for them to enjoy.
Well, one thing led to another and Betty began selling hamburgers and hot dogs. Customers didn't really like looking at dead fish while they were eating, so in 1958 Betty turned the old fish stand into a café that she named "Betty's Cafe". She also added pies to her menu.
We stopped at Betty's near closing time and grabbed two slices of pie to take back to our hotel. The pies were amazing!!!!! We came back the next day for breakfast. Hands down the best breakfast I have ever had in a restaurant! We mad Betty's our morning breakfast stop in our trip and ate pie for lunch each day! Can't wait to go back. Have had to order the cheese cake online cause we couldn't wait. And the banana cream is just as amazing!!!!
We spend the days exploring the winter activities on the North Shore; and the nights sitting by the fireplace watching movies, giggling, and having fun. The only thing that could make three nights away from the kids any more special is PIE from Betty's! We stopped in on our first night and bought a pie. A single, delicious, mouth-watering pie. The next day - we went back. And we bought SIX pies. SIX. PIES. There were three of us. You do the math. We had no shame in our pie game!
