“Come early or be prepared to eat your second choice”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

This is a great business that knows what it does well and only does what it knows! Pies pies pies are the story here. Get your dinner done early at one of the many restaurants within walking distance - then skip the dessert and head to Pie Emporium. They only make a certain number of pies for sales each day so be flexible about what you order - who knows you might discover a new favorite food!

“Gem of a Pie Shop”
Reviewed August 13, 2014 via mobile

This a small, quaint, well-run pie shop. They serve only a small number of creative, delicious, home-made pies, with ice cream, coffee and teas. Seating is limited, but it is worth the wait. We would go back.

“You get what you pay for and they're expensive”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Home made pies by very creative bakers. They put their own twist on the classics. The Drunken Nut for example is kind of like a pecan pie only it's not. It's made with bourbon, but you only get a hint of the flavor. It's made with lots of nuts and no jelly. So your mouth is filled with sweet nutty flavors with that hint of bourbon in a buttery and flaky crust. The only downside is that you might pay $40 for a pie. Great for a splurge but not an everyday thing for most of us.

“Very good, a little overpriced”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

I had the Drunken Nut (bourbon pecan with shortbread crust) and my husband had the Cherry Bomb (two-crust cherry) and both were delicious. But since the slices were a little on the small side, I thought they were overpriced. The service was very good, and they were all very helpful and friendly. They also stay open later, so you can have a nice dessert after shopping or dinner.

“Just perfect”
Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

It's small which adds to the atmosphere. The pies taste so fresh that they Re actually addicting. I suggest to eat one and then walk the historic downtown for 30 min!!
