    Salted Caramel Apple Pie: "If you must commit to just a single slice (mistake!), the lattice-topped caramel apple is a reliable regular on the seasonally updated menu, and won’t let you down." Read more

    Best pies I've ever had. They've got killer staples (pumpkin, apple, etc) and always some surprises. You can't go wrong dropping in for a slice and a coffee or grabbing a couple pies for a holiday,

    Butter-crusted pies with fillings that are more hipster than Great Plains Grandma in style and substance. We adore their chocolate oatmeal pie, plus anything double-crusted with apple or rhubarb.

    All. The. Pies. Get a few different slices to share. The seasonal flavors are always unique and worth a try. It's all about that butter crust. Their other confectionery treats are delicious as well!

    Strawberry streusel pie is incredible. Apple rhubarb was something I never had before and I dug it. Literally can't go wrong with any menu choice you make.

    You won't know what you've been missing until you've tried one of their salted pie slices. Salty Honey or Salted Caramel Apple Pie -- can't go wrong either way. Your stomach will thank you.

    I love the music and the ambiance. But most important of all, I love their pies! The amazing smell of pie wafts towards you when you walk into the cafe. The Salty and Honey pie was amazing!

    The pies here are so amazing, I make the trek all the way from NJ to have some of their pies, on the occasion when I stay at Shelter island I make the extra effort to visit the other location!

    Very cute little place that smells amazing, has great coffee, and some of the best pie I've ever had. Salted Caramel Apple is a classic, pumpkin and lemon pies were great too.

    Quaint little place for a slice of pie and cup of coffee. The salted caramel apple is to die for. Salted honey and pumpkin pie are good runner-ups. Order an extra slice to go. You'll thank me later

    You can expect pies like blood orange and rhubarb or plumb crumble in the summer, salted caramel apple in the fall, dark chocolate and dried cherry in winter and pear ginger in spring. Read more

    Delicious pies made with the best local ingredients. Eating here is like having a great slice of pie in your grandma's kitchen. I had the Cranberry Sage with whipped cream, yum!

    Pie so good you'll want to stand on the tables and sing about it. Ask the staff for their recommendations, they've never let me down. Free refills on the ~$2 coffee

    The salted caramel apple pie is delicious. Don't try and split one slice between two people. Feelings will get hurt.

    Try the Salted Caramel Apple pie! Goes so well with a dollop of whip cream! Couldn't help but ask for seconds! Try it with their freshly brewed coffee. Mmm... (:

    Everything is great but the menu is constantly changing (changed over entirely while I sat there for 2 hours). So don't go in set on anything!

    Tourist tip: Black Bottom Oat - It's like a chocolate chip oatmeal cookie dressed up as a pie. Say yes to the real whipped cream on the side!

    Some of the best pie in the city. Their coffee is great too. Go here before going to a show at the Bell House. However, mind that they close earlier than you'd think, at 7 PM on most days.

    Good coffee. Got a ham & cheese brioche. Sweet bread, comes cold. Heating it up there takes a while and not too warm when it's done. Just saying

    I had to get a copy of their cook book for my collection. The Salted Caramel Apple Pie was glorious. Might have to re-visit once more on this trip, to try another pie.

    The pie crust is reminiscent to a croissant in its perfect flakiness. Try the nectarine if they have it!

    Our favorites? Anything double-crusted involving rhubarb or apple; a buttermilk chess pie; the grapefruit custard.

    The salted caramel apple pie was pretty good, but wish the caramel and salt flavors were stronger. Pre-order and pickup was super easy and convenient!

    Cheer up a little, cash register man; you work at a pie shop, not a morgue. With each time I come, I get more and more convinced to buy prepackaged pies from the market next time and skip the hype.

    A hidden gem in the lobby of the library, get a slice of anything but especially the salted caramel apple.
