Little Pie Company
Behind a large picture window colonized by the covetous faces of passersby, the Little Pie Company’s kitchen bustles with a crew of adroit bakers tirelessly popping freshly minted confections into sparkling steel ovens. Champions of homestyle cooking since setting their first pie out to cool in 1985, staffers forge each toothsome treat from scratch using only fresh ingredients free of artificial, chemical, or secret agents. Bakers frequently switch up the menu in order to give each time of year its due, with seasonal offerings composed of calendar-appropriate fillings such as berries in the summer, pumpkins in the fall, and organic snowmen in the winter. The in-store counter beckons guests to linger and sip coffee, and on balmy days, an army of outdoor tables enables alfresco dining under the watchful gaze of the sun.
