Visiting the Culinary Institute of America campus and the Apple Pie Bakery are must do whenever you are in the Hyde Park area. The surrounding area is beautiful and has a lot to offer. Parking is available. They have mouth watering baked goods along with sandwiches and salads to make you want to return over and over again!

We had lunch at the Tavern and decided to get dessert here afterwards. The smell o fwarm baked goods pulled us in. It was perfect and we were feeling the pumpkin treats for a beautiful fall visit.

Several of the servers were rude and acted inconvenienced by our presence. Luckily we were able to get the attention of another server that was friendly and happy to attend to us. He... More

When confirming a reservation at the CIA. We took an opportunity to visit the Apple Pie. As is everything at the CIA the chocolate pastry we share was fabulous. The service is outstanding. In fact, we were accidentally overcharged for a drink, the cashier came to our table to apologize and offer the refund. We took the refund in the... More

We stopped in for a quick desert prior to our scheduled food tour and had a delicious combination of pumpkin cheese and a PB & J doughnut. I complemented my desert with a hand crafted latte to put the signature touch on a perfect desert break. Well worth the stop!

Beautifully seting at the Culinary institute in Hyde Park during the height of the Fall season. You may have to stand in line but it moves quickly. Feast your eyes on the wonderful desserts after your meal.
