Railyard Pie | Edmond

19 W First St; Unit 150., Edmond, OK 73003

Representing “family, community and togetherness” this new company in the Edmond Railyard has stolen the hearts of many around the metro. They are a small-locally owned business that excels in making freshly baked pies in the heart of bringing people together. They have a store-front on the north side of the Railyard and still have days they are sold out of pies in the early afternoon so just try whatever they have in stock or you can pre-order to guarantee to get your hands on these pies. The double-crust apple pie is um, double crusted!, and, as you can see, isn’t stingy on the apple goodness.  This would be a great addition to your holiday gatherings. Order early!

ButterSweet Cupcakes | Edmond, Yukon

ButterSweet is a family owned cake shop that has been featured on “Bake it Like Buddy” on Discovery+ and has a ‘passion for fresh’. This is my, (Sarah’s), personal go-to for a dessert. I have been going here for many years now and every sweet treat I get from here has never disappointed. However, my overall pick and favorite is their Cookie Dough Cupcake. The soft cake base is complimented by the icing that is pretty much like edible cookie dough! Stop by and get one, or a dozen. 😉

Yukon phone: (405) 265-4994

Edmond phone: (405) 397-9395


Charleston’s | OKC (etc.)

Charlston’s is a part of  Hal Smith Restaurant group and is a loved-staple restaurant for many. Within the metro they have six locations and many beyond and in the state. With a variety of different food and menu choices, there is one thing that many people have in common within selections at Charleston’s. Their beloved key lime pie is a fan-favorite and a ‘must-get’. It provides a creamy and tangy flavor all on top of a crisp crust, which is key lime perfection in our book.
