Heading east of Superior, as I entered the (blink and you'd miss it) town of Iron River I noticed a faded sign for Sue's Pie and Pasties shop, located right off Route 2. I stopped for a piece of pie and a cup of coffee. Wild blueberry pie was one of the choices. I ordered a slice, and it was tasty. The crust was just so-so, but the filling was superb -- not too sweet, not too tart, and none of the gooey, cornstarch-laden taste.
A half-hour east of Iron River, in the small town of Ashland, I was pleasantly surprised to stumble onto the Black Cat Coffeehouse. The Black Cat is located at 211 Chapple Avenue in Ashland, only a few blocks south of the Chequamegon Bay. The Black Cat is a cozy place with art displayed on the walls and lots of exposed brick.
The cinnamon roll I ate there with my latte was marvelous -- flaky dough and amazing texture. The Black Cat gets its pastries from the Ashland Baking Company (located directly across the street).
