A piece of land in Colonie that occupies Grandma's Pies and Restaurant is up for sale and let's hope this doesn't mean the end of this timeless eatery because that would truly be depressing.  When we were kids, the holidays were incomplete unless there was a pie from Grandma. Blueberry, Dutch Apple or Cherry, no meal was complete without it.

I'll admit that I haven't eaten at Grandma's in quite a few years, but the last time I ate there, it was everything I remembered it to be; homey, quaint, comfortable, and really really good.  It's certainly not a foregone conclusion that this pending sale means doom and gloom but anytime a new owner comes in, there's always a chance that they may see this as an opportunity to grow their own idea or business.  But I think I speak for thousands and thousands of Capital Region residents when I say, don't mess with Grandma!

Fagan Development Co. listed the 2.53-acre Colonie, New York, property for sale through Tony Sabatino, an associate broker with RealtyUSA.
