“Perfectly messy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Its a drippy delicious mess, which is exactly what one would expect from a pie served with extra gravy. The crust was flaky, the lamb flavorful and, quite frankly, it was finger-licking good. The ~$10 value proposition was well met and while I wanted to try one of the dessert pies, that just wasn't going to happen: the one pie sticks to the ribs and is quite filling.

“Delicious pot pies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Yummy and quick - best pot pie I've had in a long time! A few veggie options, several different protein options and of course the classic chicken! Definitely worth stopping in for lunch, dinner or a late night snack. Can also get unbaked pies to take home with you.

“"Meat" pie? Not so much.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

I have been reluctant to eat from this shop because I heard they put potatoes and carrots in the meat pies. As anybody knows who has ever eaten a real meat pie, say in Australia or New Zealand, meat pies do not contain chunks of vegetables. (Well, perhaps they sell potato or carrot pies in those countries, but I have just never tried one?) Nevertheless, I got tempted to try the place by a DealSaver pay $5, get $10 offer. I got the "beef" pie. While the crust was indeed good, and the meat-flavored gravy was okay, my $8 pie was mostly chunks of potato and carrot. The few chunks of meat in my "meat" pie would have totalled under one ounce. If you visit this restaurant wanting to get an $8 potato and carrot pie with beef gravy, then order the "beef" pie, and you will not be disappointed. At least they didn't put onion chunks in the pie ...

The counter girl was very pleasant.

“good food, but pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

we are not used to spending $8 on one item. people who have larger budgets probably would
be happy here. food is locally sourced where possible, but we can't afford that.
