To top out the meal, we decided on a couple slices of strawberry pie – the perfect summer treat. This homemade pie comes piled with fresh strawberries (as if they had been picked that day, but probably not), all topped with a fluffy whipped cream, which complemented the slice perfectly. We were scraping the plates and licking our utensils until the flavor was gone. With its balanced menu and diverse specials, there's no doubt why The Feed Store is so popular with those in the know. It is considered one of Bureau County's hidden gems.
