The latest in the Seattle dessert scene? Pie! Sweet, savory, cream, berry, or meat-filled – it’s all the rage. Here are some of the newest and coolest places in town!

Shoofly Pie Co.

The original shoofly pies are said to have been made by the early settlers to the New World, using the ingredients they brought with them – flour, brown sugar, molasses, lard, salt, and spices. You can get a slice of  wonderfully homemade shoofly pie at Shoofly, or a slice of one of nearly 20 pies on the menu. Prices range from $3.00 – $4.50 for pieces of  banana cream, lemon chess, cherry, or strawberry rhubarb. In fact, it was her rhubarb pies that got Kimmy Hsieh Tomlinson and her husband Zak thinking about a pie shop. Shoofly opened in 2005. They also offer savory pies, like mac ‘n cheese with bacon, or quiches, like Ham Gruyere Scallion. Want to take some of Kimmy’s dough home to whip up your own creation? She’ll sell it to you. Stay a while, linger over your pie, and sip an espresso, tea, a microbrew or glass of wine. Ask for your pie a la mode. Ice cream is available by the scoop or the pint.
