The same weekend that found me in Tacoma also had me exploring the Fremont area of Seattle. I spotted the signage for Pie on my way to the Fremont Sunday Market and I knew this would be my lunch destination. After exploring the wares at the market and successfully avoiding spoiling my lunch plans with tempting food cart food, I arrived at Pie. Their menu spanned all kinds of comfort foods in pie form. Chicken pot pie, broccoli and cheese pie, peppered steak pie, English meat pie and mac and cheese with peas. Craving mac and cheese from the day before, my choice was a no brainer. The warm pie was plucked from the warming cabinet and I was soon settled in for lunch. My first impression was that it was too cute to eat. Nicely browned pastry with a browned crumbled top. I cut the pie in half. It was full of cheesy noodles dotted with peas. The crust was flaky and not too over bearing. The mac and cheese was moist but not runny and had a good full cheese taste. It was a fabulous lunch on a very cold but sunny day.
They also have sweet pies and I could not leave without buying a couple to go. I picked a couple of our favorites, Key Lime and Coconut Cream to share with B. They survived the trip back to Vancouver and after the first bite of the coconut cream I wished I had bought even more. This was the creamiest, most “coconutiest” coconut cream pie we have ever had. The key lime was also great with a smooth tart finish. Pie is now definitely on our list for future Seattle dessert stops!
