Lemon Meringue; Whitehorse Diner; York, PA: $1.75
Ironically, the same day we encountered the “most expensive piece of pie” (in Gettysburg) actually began in York, PA, where we may have found the least expensive pie on record. We had breakfast at the Whitehorse Diner, not looking for dessert. But there on the board was the list of “$1.75 Dessert.” (Dessert is also free on Mondays with a dinner entree purchase).
As you can see, the only pie was Lemon Meringue, which we ended up eating before the blueberry pancakes, home fries and smoked sausage were ready. Compared to the mile-high meringue we had in New Castle, DE, it was a visual disappointment, but we liked it just fine, especially for being not too sweet and its unusual graham cracker crust. There was no baker on site; the waitress said the pie comes in frozen. But it was better than the fresh pancakes…go figure. Next time I would stick with eggs, toast and pie.
