Maxine’s Café and Bakery

Maxines Cafe Pie

Some travel to Bastrop just to grab breakfast here, (it’s that good!) but if you’re looking for a treat a little smaller than a giant stack of pancakes, stop by the pie case and grab a slice of their special cream pie. It’s drizzled in a mountain of whipped cream, but we promise you will love every bite of it!
