Rock Springs Cafe
From Phoenix to the Grand Canyon: Where to Stop on the Way to America's Greatest National Park
Famous for their pies, Rock Springs Cafe has been slinging slices and whole pies for, well, a very, very long time. The Rock, as it was formerly called, was once a watering hole for miners, cattle drivers, and sheepherders way back in 1860. Over the years the highway adjacent outpost transitioned into a general store and hotel. And today you can find cases and rows of pies, from pecan to banana cream, at this Black Canyon City staple. Go ahead, indulge your sweet tooth. And check out the natural spring out back before you hit the open road.
