This is a slice of decadent and lovely butterscotch pie from Butter Lovins in Cabot. It is one of the finest examples I have found of this sort of pie, and the first I've had in ages that included meringue. Not too butterscotchy-y... more like... well, honestly, first thing I thought of was how pound cake batter tastes. Good stuff. And the crust is flaky and not sweet.
The little restaurant is a nice example of the local lunch joint -- cheerily clean and bright, small, a few bar stools for counter service and several country-style tables. They have lunch specials (today it's Spaghetti with Meat Sauce, tomorrow Ham & White Beans, Wednesday Chicken & Dumplings) for $4.25 and a mean Chef's Salad, too. But what people have kept telling me all about is the pie -- chocolate, coconut, whatever happens to be the flavor du jour, $2.79 a slice.
Just another great little place for lunch in Cabot. You'll find it on the west side of North Second Street a few blocks north of the Dancing Baby sign. Worth a drop-in.
