Lea’s is a classic lunchroom (and an amazing one at that, dating to 1928), but what you really want here is pie, and good Lordy do they have a lot of it. Daily pies include coconut, lemon, chocolate, banana, apple, peach, cherry, and (naturally) pecan, not to mention seasonal favorites like pumpkin, mincemeat, sweet potato, blueberry, blackberry, and dewberry. Actually, it’s worth pointing out that Lecompte, LA is the state’s pie capitol. And that was voted into law. By the GOVERNMENT.
