Tilly’s Pies

Enhancing people’s lives one slice at a time.

October 20-24 hours

Wednesday and Thursday 4-8

Friday and Saturday 2-8

Walk up or order online at Tilly’s Pies Online Store.

September 12 update.

Still baking hundreds of pies a week. We will continue to bake through October. Then take a little break until Christmas.

August 8 Update

We have several updates on hours. We continue to bake 70 pies per day, which will probably be our limit this summer. To put it in perspective, think of the last time you baked a pie at home. Now bake 8 – 12 varieties each day including meringues, creme pies and double crust fruit pies. That’s a lot of pies. We will be cutting back our hours a bit as we begin to lose staff to college.

Thank You! We haven’t told you that enough. Beth and I are often working at The Rivers Eatery when you come into the pie shop. But every time we look over or walk in we see pies and ice cream flying out the door or families sitting on the patio enjoying themselves. We can’t thank you enough for your support of Tilly’s. We feel we have something very special going on here. Please feel free to drop us a note at admin@theidealmarket.com if we can ever make your experience even better.

We are back with our most hours ever. See below. We are serving slices and ice cream in addition to whole pies again. We serve thousands of scoops of Schoep’s Ice cream – a 90 year old family owned business from Madison WI. You can still order online to be sure you get your favorite pie, or you can take your chances anytime by visiting Tilly’s Pie Shop during business hours. We will have some inside seating at Tilly’s again and of course our walk up window and lots of outdoor seating. See you soon!

Pie World Update March 2021

Thank you for a record year of pie sales.  This is a trend that began the day we opened.  Pie is a tough business, which we enjoy, frankly.  Consistent growth, your feedback, our experience and great staff portends a bright future for Tilly’s.  As you may have heard us say over the last 14 years, we don’t put our foot on the gas until we know where we are going.  We now know where we are going.  We see tremendous opportunities ahead, limited only by our time, energy, the usual challenges of a rural business and a pandemic.

What we can promise as we grow is the same great quality of ingredients in every pie and a continued refinement of our processes, communication and staffing.  Thank you.  We look forward to making Tilly’s Pies a shop that you can be proud to share with your friends and family.

Our Pies

We bake the following pies on a regular basis and can bake one or more especially for you in most cases with 2 days notice:  Banana Creme, Coconut Creme, Key Lime, Chocolate Walnut Stout, Apple Strudel, Blueberry Strudel, Cherry, Peach Berry, Strawberry, 3 Berry, Apple Raspberry.   Our whole price pie is $25.  We know a little about business and we assure you this is price represents a great value for a handmade pie with “real” ingredients.   Celebrate one of life’s greatest pleasures prepared – as our staff says, “with love.”

Tilly's interior

Who was Tilly?

Tilly was the nickname of our good friend, philosopher and world-champion cyclist Steve Tilford.  You can learn about Steve’s life by simply Googling his name.  In addition to being a great athlete and beautiful human, Steve loved people, he loved Cable WI and he loved pie.

Steve’s long time partner Trudi Rebsamen is helping us run the shop and can be found behind the counter most nights in the summer serving up slices, ice cream and kindness.

Tilly’s is located in the little carriage house (formerly a burned out garage) behind the Rivers Eatery in a space we call the Ideal Market Commons.

See one of Steve’s many posts from his famous blog about his love for pie. Pie Time

I’m not sure who or what created this world but I feel super lucky just to be a part of it.”  Steve Tilford – Some time after hours.
