Brisbane’s going down down
What’s better than a fresh, flaky, buttery pie? A bakery that sell nothing but pies!
Pie Town has opened in West End, Brisbane, and they literally sell only locally handmade small-batch American style sweet and savoury pies, so no matter what you’re craving, there’ll be a pie to match.
Starting out as a pop-up shop at Wandering Cooks, the new permanent spot at 342 Montague Road is a real game changer for the team delivering the most perfect pies in Brisbane. With a tasting plate of three flavours available, you’ll be able to tuck in and sample all that’s on offer.
In the way of savoury fillings, Pie Town offers chicken pot pie, pepper steak, cheesy cauliflower, cheeseburger pies and more, while the sweets range offers up mouthwatering options like strawberry rhubarb, apple, bourbon pecan and key lime.
Pie Town pies are made from scratch, by hand from seasonal, local produce, and can be bought by the slice or by the whole pie for the family. They use local producers like Echo Valley Farm eggs, beef and pork products, Barambah Organic Dairy, Food Connect Brisbane, Suncoast Limes and Boyne River Pecans. In the name of sustainability, they also offer a discount for customers bringing their own containers to take away their pie.
For the creators behind Pie Town, supporting local producers, artists, and the environments comes first, and that’s why their prices may seem more expensive.
“For us, the cost to be here, in existence, means more than the pie on your plate”, a post on their Facebook page said.
“If you feel like we’re a little on the pricey side, that’s ok – your dollars are precious. But just know, Pie Town chose to go the longer road than some businesses do – we put our community before ourselves. Every time you buy a pie from us, just know you’re supporting the farmers who are struggling, the artists who are trying, the food that’s filled with loved ingredients and staff we love the opportunity they have.
“We’re in it for the long haul baby!”
And being open 7am to 8pm seven days a week, there’s every opportunity to grab a pie and give yourself a night off cooking.
