Here are answers to some of our most frequently asked questions!
1. What are your hours?
Sorry for any confusion when it comes to store hours! Our hours are as follows:
Tuesday -Friday 10am to 6pm
Saturday- 10am to 3pm
Sunday and Monday- Closed
(There was a time period when we were closed on Tuesdays but we are not anymore)
2. What is a Lemon Chess Pie?
This is a popular Southern pie that tastes like a lemon bar. We make a lemon filling with fresh lemon zest and juice, eggs, milk, a little flour and cornmeal to thicken it up and then bake it in the oven. The top gets a little crunchy then we dust the top with powdered sugar. You can read about some of the history of Chess Pie here: https://whatscookingamerica.net/History/PieHistory/ChessPie.htm There are many different stories about how this pie got it's name!
3. What is in the Chicken Pot Pie?
Diced chicken, carrots, onions, celery, fresh thyme in a double pie crust.
4. When are you going to have (fill in the blank) pie?
There are so many possibilities when it comes to pie! We are slowly testing new recipes as we want to get them right before we put them in the case. Our goal is to have traditional pies available as well as some non-traditional pies (like Chocolate Coconut Almond Pie- coming soon!) We also want to offer a variety of savory pot pies. All pies are made from scratch including the pot pies. We make all stocks and sauces from scratch as well. We post on social media whenever we have a new pie and when it will be available.
5. Can I place an order for (fill in the blank) pie?
We only take orders for pies that we currently make. We also ask for at least 24 hours notice when placing an order (but occasionally if you call for a pie and pay over the phone we can hold it for you!)
6. How come you don't answer your phone sometimes?
We are a small team and occasionally there are time periods when we are helping customers in the store or in the middle of making the chocolate cream filling and we just can't walk away! You can try to call back in a few minutes or just stop by the store!
