Betty’s Pies Inc.
You haven’t been to the north shore of Lake Superior until you’ve been to Betty’s Pies. It all began in 1957 when Betty’s father Aleck built a fish shack by the Stewart River on Highway 61. Realizing that it might serve the fishermen well to have some goodies waiting during their pit stops, Betty started making donuts and coffee for them to enjoy. In 1958 she turned the stand into Betty’s Café and added pies to the menu. Eventually Betty expanded the café by adding a lunch counter and more seating. People then began making it a regular stop on their way to cabins and resorts along the North Shore. Even now, Betty’s Café remains a staple of the area… and beyond (now offering shipping across the country!)
