#114: Blue Owl

You've probably been to Kimmswick (located about 30 miles South of St. Louis) and your chances of eating at the Blue Owl Restaurant and Bakery while there are pretty high. It's without question why this got a cake. It is not the southernmost cake location; that goes to Meramec Caverns. The village of Kimmswick was founded in 1859 by a German immigrant.
So what makes the Blue Owl so special? Check it out:

  • Home of the famous levee-high Caramel Apple Pie
  • Also makes glorious pastries, cakes, and confectionaries
  • It's not just about the sweets: homemade meals as well. 
  • Featured on The Food Network and the Travel Channel, as well as various publications like the Oprah and Midwest Living magazines.
  • The Blue Owl has been owned and operated by Mary Hostetter since 1985.

There you have it. The only downer is it is not open any later than 5pm. You will want to visit Kimmswick and the Blue Owl in the daytime (most likely noon) as most of the shops around the village are mostly open during that time. Be sure to check the hours on their website and/or their Facebook page.
