Lois the Pie Queen.

Oakland may have a bad rep for a lot of things but the food isn't one of them. We love finding new restaurants in our area so when my cousin Liz discovered Lois The Pie Queen in Oakland, we were so excited to try it with her. Because of their odd and limited hours, we had lunch here on a Sunday afternoon. If you want down home Southern cooking - complete with fried chicken, waffles, biscuits, banana pudding and, of course, pie - you have to try this place. It's a little hole in the wall diner in the middle of a residential neighborhood in Oakland and it's delicious. So much for the wedding diet, but this was well worth it! Thanks for the recommendation Liz!
