Description: OUR PIES ARE reinvented AUSSIE PIES! At APK, Fork-in Aussie Pies, we have re- imagined, re-engineered and re-created the Aussie Pie from the crust up. YES we do sell savory pies that while that are INSPIRED by the Aussie Meat Pie, they are not authentic in taste, preparation or cost. . Ours are a gourmet version of the savory Aussie Pie . Our chef Joe Youkhan is a "Chopped" champion on The Food Network. Unlike the typical mass produced "gas station and footy" pie, our pies take 3 days to make. We marinate the fillings for a day. We then braise for 2-4 hours, then let it rest in its own juices overnight. We finish the pie on Day 3 with a blind baked pastry crust and a croissant top. WE CATER FOR BREAKFAST, LUNCH, COCKTAIL PARTIES AND LATE NIGHT. We can handle small orders and up to 1500 people. Amazing organic coffee from Vittoria Australia - Australia's favorite premium espresso brand. Our flat whites, stacks and pies are fork-in remarkable.

I had the BBQ Pulled Pork pot pie with the creamy thyme gravy on the side and it was so good. The pie is topped with mac and cheese and it's heaven in your mouth. The pork was good, the sauce was good, the mac and cheese was perfect and the temperature was perfect as well. I also tried the lamington cake it was really good. The cake itself was soft and it covered in a light flavor of chocolate and coconut. It reminded me of Mounds.

Fantastic pies and quality coffee. If you are an Aussie visiting Santa Monica and in need of some Aussie style coffee then you must visit Fork in Aussie Pie. In addition the pies are fantastic made with high quality ingredients. Be sure to sample the Lamingtons the group we were with absolutely loved them.

Whilst on a 1 month holiday in the US with our twin 7yo girls, the one thing one of my little one's missed was an Aussie pie. As it turned out from a walk from Venice Beach to Santa Monica we came across this Pie Shop there was no way we would go past without going in, and I am so glad we did. The pies are a positive twist on the humble Aussie Pie making it a wholesome and healthy meal, make sure to add some sides. My little ones were so happy! To top it off Mum and Dad were even happier to get a fantastic caffe latte we have been missing from home. If that wasn't enough the hospitality we received from Nick was amazing. We had a great chat and he made us feel right at home. This place is a must!!!
