Fantastic chicken & pork pies! Also tried the sour cream blueberry & dutch apple! All were great! Small coffeeshop-like spot with an extremely nice and friendly staff.

Neat atmosphere, small joint with fantastic pie. Get there early, as they sell out of items! Meat pies, other "dinner pies" (small but very filling) and lots of desert pies - many options for everyone.

I say as a proud resident of Church Hill that this is the best meal in the city. It's inexpensive, unique, and delicious. I'm a particular adovcate of the savory pies. There are always plenty of individual pie options for meaties, vegetarians, and vegans, including "BBQ pork and peach," "Salmon, leek and potato," "vegan chili," "sausage and cheese roll," and...

Pies like I have not had since I left the UK, where pies are a tradition. Fantastic flaky pastry and yummy fillings. Smoked salmon, leek and potato? Sign me up. My friend had the vegetarian option of which there is always one or two, lentil I think. Smelt wonderful but I just focused on mine, could not imagine better picnic... More

I. LOVE. THESE. PIES. I could eat a pie a day. I've had nearly every flavor they make and I haven't found one I don't like. The meat pies are better than the sweet ones, although the sweets are pretty good too. I love that the sweet pies are just sweet enough, so you can taste the natural flavors of... More

Husband stopped off for some pies for a spur of the moment dinner. All their pies taste very similar to the pies I had as a child in my home country. The sausage rolls were huge and delicious, and so were the steak pies. Crust was nice and flakey and not too thick. We’d eat here a lot more often... More

I have had both savory and sweet pies here. The savory are very good, but not necessarily life changing. The sweet pies are life changing. The blackberry peach is my favorite when it's in season! It's bit crowded inside, but if it's nice out, you can go sit at a park that has picnic tables down the street.

This place has great pies. The savory pies age good but the dessert pies are the best I have ever eaten(except for my mom but she didn't make such a wide selection). Try the coconut cream

Delicious pies and fast service. I had the salted caramel pumpkin pie. I'm sure it's the best pumpkin pie I'll have all year, maybe ever... We'd be back tomorrow to try the savory pies if they were open! Closed Monday and Tuesday. So glad we stopped by today while in the neighborhood.

I had a hunger attack late afternoon and stopped by the Proper Pie for a snack so I could make it home. What a delightful small but very friendly place! I felt like I was anywhere but the USA, perhaps because the owner is from Australia and knows how to make a good pasty. And the desserts lined up behind... More
