Shreveport, LA

I was starting to lose faith that a place in this country existed where one could sit at a formica counter and leisurely eat delicious, homemade pie. My first day in Louisiana proved that my ideal diner pie did exist. I found it at Strawn’s in Shreveport. While they are famous for the strawberry pie, the coconut was too tempting to pass up and I went to battle with a giant slice.

But lest you think I’m spending my days eating nothing but dessert, I in fact had lunch first–the soft shell crab salad from the Columbia Cafe. A great little place tucked away on a quiet street corner
