Time to pick out and head back, for the trip home. It;s going to be in the 90's in Portland and over 100 degrees at how. We got into the outskirts of Portland for some last minute school clothes shopping for Mollie, she is the best dressed kid in school, she has good taste.
 We head over to for a quick lunch. Joyce has had a migraine for the last three days. Most people think I'm the cause of the migraine, I don't know what the Hell their talking about.
Otto's sausage is a fun place, they grill the sausage and hot dogs  outside. I asked the cook what was the best, he said the Pork sausage and hot dogs are a good start. Fine by me, one of each please.

I told him to smile, it's only 88 degrees, wait two hours you'll be sweating your buns off when it's 96 degrees.

This the grill Hot dog

We washed it down with this

Pork Sausage/ same as a German Sausage

I bought some of the German sausage and some Italian sausage for home. This is the German sausage smoked
 
this is the Italian Sausage, good quality, I made Sausage and pepper grinders with these sausages.

Otto's Sausage is a must stop while in Portland, Great people. They offer a large selection of fresh sausage, a few smoked sausage, 8 to 10 premade salads. I would stop here in a heartbeat.
The post is making me hungry, I just made one of the German sausage for lunch, I can't type and eat, see ya in a bit.

    This is the last leg, the end of the
     
    We left Otto's Sausage, and set the GPS for
    Mr Chips told me about this Cafe, I was going to call and meet him, but Joyce just wanted to get the pie and run, she wasn't feeling well and it was getting hot. So, Mr Chips the next time around, the pie is on me.
    I drove up to the Cafe in my Eco friendly Prius, and parked right in front of the Cafe. This is the kind of place the Eco friendly makes you look I walked over to the counter and asked what kinds of pie do you have today.

    They had  a few berry, a few others and a few Cream pies. I took a Marionberry, Triple berry, and a Raspberry apple, to go. They packed them up real nice in ind containers, so they would travel well.
    This is a list of the pies they offer
     

    Apple
    Apple Blueberry
    Apple Marionberry
    Apple Raspberry
    Banana Cream
    Butterscotch Cream

    Cherry
    Chocolate Cream
    Chocolate Espresso
    Cream
    Chocolate Orange Cream
    Chocolate Peanut Butter Cream
    Coconut Amaretto Cream
    Coconut Cream
    Espresso Cream
    German Chocolate Cream
    Key Lime Cream
    Key Lime Meringue
    Lemon Meringue
    Lemon Raspberry Meringue
    Marionberry

    Peach
    Peaches & Cream
    Peach Blueberry
    Peach Marionberry
    Peach Raspberry
    Pear Candied Ginger
    Pear Raspberry
    Pecan
    Pumpkin
    Pumpkin Orange Cream
    Sour Cream Apple
    Sour Cream Pumpkin
    Strawberry Apricot
    Strawberry Cream Cheese
    Strawberry Rhubar
    b
    Triple Berry

    They also offer a few other items on the counter.

    The Cafe is pretty cool, it offers free Wifi, Coffee drinks, kind of a yuppie hang out. This isn't the Art & Croissant crowd, its more of the Backpack, herb garden kind of laid  back place.It has pictures of old Presidents on the walls, couches and living room chairs. They also have some tables along the picture wall.

    I packed the pie in the cooler, and headed for home. I lost one of the pies to a leaking ice ziploc bag that dripped ino the Apple Raspberry slice that I really wanted to taste. I wanted to try the Strawberry Rhubarb pie, but, Joyce makes a real good one, and I would never see another one if I bought a slice from the Cafe. Ya Gotta do what ya Gotta do, I think I see a  Strawberry/Blueberry Reubarb pie coming my way soon.
    Ok so, I have two berry pies, they both look a like, so we only get one picture.

    I cut both pies in half, I asked Mollie to Critique the pie and let me know what she thought. THis is her evaluation and taste test of the pie. This isn't bad for an 11 yr old, she ate the pie, came into my office and said, Papa, the filling was real tasty and yummy, the crust was GREAT, BUT, there wasn't enough crust to match the pie. she said she had to take the end crust and dip it into the filling. I was smiling during her presentation because, I felt the same way about the pie, the crust was good,but, to thin and not enough to match the amount of filling in the pie. All in all, the pies are good, I wish I didn't lose the Apple Raspberry Pie because I was left with two slices of very close tasting pie. I would stop here again, well, I know I'm going to stop here agin, I own My Chips a slice of pie.......
     
                           for all the kind words, and joining us on our trip to Portland and the Oregon Coast. I wish you all good health and happiness.

                  mr chips: Maybe a few slices, it's hard to critique just one..I would have tried a cream pie,but, I had to travel 170 miles down the road.

                  Ralph Melton: The picture matched the pie
