What makes your pies s-o-o-o good?
What makes our pies s-o-o-o good is that the ingredients are s-o-o-o simple. Old fashioned, basic ingredients just like grandma had in her pantry—unbleached flour, cane sugar, sweet butter, a bit of salt and plenty of fresh fruit. It’s that simple.
Also, we try not to make any of our pies overly sweet. We like them to be fruity tasting, even wholesome tasting—so much so that you could feel OK about having some for your breakfast. Even the chocolate, pecan, and custard pies, rich as they are, are not overly sweet.
What are your hours at the shop?
Monday-Saturday 7am-7pm Sunday 8am-6pm.

How long will your pies keep and what is the best way to keep them?
Good question! Our pies are always sold fresh and are made without any preservatives so the way they are kept is important.
If you are planning to eat your pie today you can go ahead and keep it out of the fridge in a cool, dry place. If you are going to eat it tomorrow or a few days from now, just put it in the fridge. Fruit pies will last about a week and custard based pies will last 4-5 Days.
Do your pies freeze well?
Yes absolutely! All of our pies are sold fresh baked and therefore freeze beautifully. We have done a lot of experimenting over the years to find the best way to freeze, thaw and serve our pies. A step by step guide to the method we recommend is available on the Freezing Instructions page of our site.
Do I need to order my pies in advance?
We always have a good selection of pies on hand at the shop, but we are never sure just how many people are going to come through the doors on a given day and what they will be in the mood for. If you have your heart set on a particular flavor in a particular size we recommend that you call ahead and let us know. We will be happy to set your pie(s) aside for you. You can also Order Online.
What about the holidays?
We’re glad you asked. We have gotten pretty good at estimating how many pies to bake for each holiday and we usually have a good selection on hand. Again, we recommend placing an order in advance if you have your heart set on a particular pie. The only exception Thanksgiving…
What about Thanksgiving?
Thanksgiving is the only holiday for which we can’t meet the demand for our pies. To gaurentee getting pies from us for Thanksgiving an order is required. We begin taking orders for thanksgiving at the beginning of October and close the orders (2) weeks before Thanksgiving.
What if I miss the window to place my Thanksgiving Order?
We a lot of additional pies above and beyond the orders and we sell them on a first come first served basis.
