“Pie and an Espresso”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Do yourself a favor and if you're in the area, or even if you're not - stop by for an afternoon snack, or a saturday morning pick-me-up. This place has a rotating menu of delicious freshly baked pies and other pastries. It's small and comfortable inside - grab a slice of pie and an espresso and enjoy your New York morning.

“Excellent Specialist Pies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

If like me, you seek out great fruit tarts and pies, then if you are in Brooklyn this is a good stop. This is a small establishment, where you can see the pies being made, with space for about 15 customers and no frills. They bake speciality breads, muffins, croissants etc but my visit was to check out the fruit pies on offer. The offering changes daily with only 4 available on my first visit but 6 available on the second visit. I had a Plum Crumble on day 1 and Fig & Strawberry Tart on the second visit. Whipped cream is an option. Both were very good with plenty of fruit and tasty pie crust/crumble. Drinks options are the usual sodas with coffees and teas and they do a home-made lemonade. Hang-out also for computer workers.

“We loved this bakery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

We stayed in Brooklyn in August, just down the block from 4 and 20 Blackbirds. They specialize in delicious pies, but they have some other items for breakfast. We liked this bakery so much that we took a pie with us when we left Brooklyn.
