I'm one half of a couple from New York, having a wedding party in New Bern, NC.
We'd like to find a place within ~30 minutes or so of New Bern that makes the best pies.
Taste is the most important factor, needn't be fancy (we prefer the idea of traditional pies vs. new fangled creations).
Also on a halfway unrelated matter, bonus points if anyone knows where Austrian/German marzipan cake can be obtained nearby.
All help and recommendations appreciated. Thanks.
