Our menu varies from day-to-day and changes with the seasons. We make everything by hand, from scratch in small batches and then bake off just enough to sell for the day so that everything you get is freshly made. Scroll down to see a sample of our daily offerings.

We take care to make sure we serve the freshest handmade pies and only bake off what we need for orders and we expect to sell by the slice in the shop each day. As such we generally do not have additional whole pies for sale (though you can always call to ask, sometimes things happen!) Whole pies for walk-ins (i.e. purchased without a 24 advance order) are $32.
