You’ve heard of putting Oreos and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in shakes. Heck, you’ve probably even had a shake with mix-ins like hot fudge, mini M&Ms and fresh fruit. Question is, have you ever had a shake made with a slice of pie? Or one made with a locally baked cupcake? My guess is no, which means you have yet to visit one of the three Sammy’s Cafe locations: Provo, Rexburg and their newest location in Pleasant Grove.
Though Sammy’s Cafe offers a full menu of cafe-style savory items like burgers, grilled chicken sandwiches, onion rings and fries (hand cut using Idaho potatoes; both regular and sweet potato), they’re famous for their shakes. On the menu you’ll find pie shakes like:
- Banana Cream Pie
- Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake
- Mint Oreo
- Chocolate Cream Oreo Pie
- Coconut Cream Pie
- Fruit Cheesecakes (strawberry, blackberry, pineapple, raspberry)
- Peach Cobbler
- Apple Cobbler
You’ll also find cupcake shakes like key lime and strawberry shortcake. Not cool enough for a pie or cupcake shake? Try a traditional shake or malt in 15 different flavors. And they even come in half sizes for the kids (or kids-at-heart who are watching their waistline for some silly reason).
Speaking of waistline, Sammy’s Cafe offers a side of caramel with your sweet potoato fries. Yes, I said caramel. And their handmade fry sauce is delicious. (Wait, should that have been in Wednesday’s review? Oh well. It is really, really good.)
The new location in Pleasant Grove opened a week ago this last Saturday to lines out the door and live music in the air. Though the cafe locations in Provo and Rexburg have more of a college feel, the new location in PG lends itself to more of a “family” crowd.
What did the Sassies and their kids think of their visit to the new Sammy’s Cafe? Did any of the Sassies taste test one of the cafe’s famous pie shakes? Tune in Wednesday to find out!
