And they did have the BEST pies in town, my two favorites were the lemon meringue and the coconut cream. And I also enjoyed their meat loaf sandwiches and a big glass of chocolate milk to wash it down. It seemed like a big deal going out to eat then, now it is commone place but then I can remember dad saying “it is expensive to take the whole family out to eat but it is one of the only times we sit down together”. Another restarant I always enjoyed eating at was Perrone’s by the subway. I thought it was great sitting in the window watching people walk by and eating. Great meals and great memories.

When I was little, we used to go to the restaurant where she would feed us until we would bust! I loved cherry pie and my brother loved apple, so whenever we would come to Ellwood to visit, she would always send some home with us. I still have pie baskets that she used to carry pies from home to the store. Thank you for posting this article and for the nice comments. We loved Gramma Krause very very much!

I remember the billboard for Margaret’s on the way from Zelienople to Ellwood City. I would love to read anything memories any one as I am trying to put together a family history. the rest of the family will laugh about this because i am always making big plans but they take a long time to materialize.

We would drive up from Pittsburgh to Ellwood City and I remember passing the playground and then I would see the red steps and knew we were almost to the house. Great Aunt Margaret always made my favorite cake, Banana Cake Clock and she used black licorice for the hands on the clock and the hours. Yum! Great memories of a very wonderful lady we all miss very much!
