Carriage Crossing Restaurant and Bakery revisited… for the pies

It’s been around 6–7 years since I last stopped by Carriage Crossing Restaurant & Bakery. I was actually in Hutchinson recently and knew I would be passing through Yoder on my way back home. I sent a text message out to family to see if anybody was interested in some pies from Carriage Crossing, and received a resounding yes.

For this visit, I stuck with just the desserts at Carriage Crossing. Since I just had lunch about 30 minutes before this visit, I figured there’s always room for dessert.

The shelves were loaded over the lunchtime with plenty of pies. Whole pies were $14.99 and there were probably 10–15 flavors to choose from. After polling my family, we decided on Dutch apple and chocolate.

I couldn’t help but notice some coffee cake and cinnamon rolls the size of my face, so I picked up some of those as well.

This is what I came home with.

Lets’ start with the cinnamon rolls. Visually, they look cool because they are huge. But behind the size, there were just mediocre. The icing didn’t have much flavor to it, and the breading could have used a bit more cinnamon or something to add to the visual spectacle. This was like one of those instances where you get a massive country fried steak, and it’s mostly breading and tastes average.

The coffee cake was also underwhelming and very dry.

But on the bright side, the pies were a big hit for my family. Like the cinnamon rolls and coffee cake, Carriage Crossing spared no expense at the size. It felt like it was enough pie to feed a neighborhood. I’m a huge apple pie fan and loved the Dutch apple. We brought the leftovers (there were lots of it) to a larger family gathering and there were smiles across the the room. There was no shortage of filling inside the pies and plenty to go around.

In conclusion, we loved just the pies, probably not so much that we’d go out of our way to drive to Yoder for them, though. I do find myself driving out to Hutchinson occasionally, so I could see myself making another stop in Yoder again for more pies.

Happy Dining,
