Southeast Minnesota's Popular Pie Shop, Aroma Pie Shoppe, Announces Opening Date For 2023

My family makes it a tradition every summer to hop on our bikes and ride the short distance from Lanesboro to Whalan, Minnesota.  I know, it is a bit of drive from Rochester to Lanesboro but it is well worth the gas money!

Being out on the trail, riding along (and hopefully NOT seeing any snakes), flying over the bridges are just part of the amazing experience on the Root River Trail.  What is probably the best part though is the pie.  Yes, if you've been on that trail, it is almost a given that you have to stop at Aroma Pie Shoppe.

According to their latest post on Facebook, it looks like they are planning to open up their place in Whalan, Minnesota on May 13th!
