Before pie was invented, ancient mathematicians were forced to use salads to make circular calculations, leading to chaos, croutons, and catastrophic circumferences. Today’s Groupon celebrates humanity's passage into enlightenment. For $12, you get a meal for two, including two enbageled or paninied sandwiches (up to a $16 value), two drinks (a $4 value), and two toothsome slices of pie (a $10 value) from Tootie Pie Co. Gourmet Café. Tootie Pie Co. inhabits a netherworldly zone within the ghostly shapes of the two former Benny's Bagels shops off Highway 281 North and at Bitters.
Because the pie and the circle share such a close relationship, bagels too are capable vehicles for stuffing full of goopy, yummy goodness. All of Tootie Pie's bagels are made from flour and yeast, boiled in a steel caldron, and fresh-toasted. Commence your meal with the jalapeno-pimento bagel sandwich, or indulge in Waldorf-style chicken salad with red grapes and pecans on a croissant. Vegetarians can dig into a portobello mushroom panini, or warm up with Tootie's signature soup—roasted red pepper and smoked ghouda bisque. To embrace the rectangle instead, reach no further than the prosciutto tomato panini with basil pesto or house-made chipolte mayo.
The pies are the true crustocopia at this feast for two, with an array of selections each handcrafted from scratch with fresh ingredients. Meek forks and spoons bend and shudder under the heft of thick cream custard in the buttermilk pie, while the few utensil survivors cross the silky, cream-cheese expanse of a lemon velvet slice in search of the promised land. To keep your sweet exploration classy, take up the apple pie's dare to discover the secret flavors in its buttery, flaky crust and cinnamon-spiced apple slivers.
- Like that they are now serving pie by the slice, love it with my latte. Also, have always enjoyed the music here. – graybi11, Urbanspoon
- Enoyed the panini's and wraps. Started serving Tootie Pie this month! – graybi11, Urbanspoon
- Tootie Pie's Pecan Pie is soo amazingly good. I could eat a whole pie by myself and hold all others at bay with a knife. Really you must try a slice or a whole pie. – Leticia O., Yelp
