Advice: Come hungry, if the place is full it is worth waiting for a seat.

Pies

They have one of the best Grilled Cheese Sandwiches in the city, moreover one of the best pies selections too. Anytime I find myself in the neighborhood, I’ve dropped by for a visit to admire the pies, have a coffee and read the paper. This bustling bakery/café is always full of people eating great sandwiches, sipping lattes or indulging in slices of pie. They bake their own breads, and several different types of pies daily.

Grilled Cheese

Lemon Buttermilk Berry Pie

On my last visit I had the Grilled Cheese ($9.50) on their Italian bread with cheese, tomatoes and onions, crispy and grilled to perfection. I also had a slice of their Lemon Buttermilk Berry Pie ($4.95). They have a good selection of other sandwiches that can be grilled or not, soups, salads and a whole range of baked goods including the most delicious pies. There at least 10 different types of pies made fresh daily, by the slice or by the pie. For an extra $1.50 you can add a scoop of ice cream to your pie. Have a latte or a cup of tea, find a seat, read a newspaper and enjoy.
