Blue Owl Bakery

Home of the World Famous Levee High Apple Pie

But word of her famously tall, flaky-crusted Levee-High Apple Pie—each one piled high with 18 hand-peeled and hand-sliced apples has traveled around the world and made her downhome bakery a source for a true slice of heaven. An avid baker, Mary Hostetter started off in humbly 1983, offering homemade baked goods at festivals and fairs in the St. Louis area. But by Christmas of 1984, she was receiving 30,000 orders and knew she had to expand. Today, Mary welcomes more than 300 customers daily with the help of 75 staff at the Blue Owl Restaurant.
