Pie Society

Bakery | British
Worth driving from anywhere!

Pies are a glory of British cuisine — savory pies in particular. Here they are, made from scratch by a family who hail came from Staffordshire and opened a little cafe in downtown Savannah in 2012. The business has grown and now offers mail-order service and does wholesale sales to stores along the East Coast. The original cafe retains modest corner-store character, with just a few tables — inside and on the sidewalk for customers who choose to eat here. Everything Pie Society makes is eminently portable, for taking home or on a picnic.

When Britons talk about pie, they generally are referring to a meal, and a hearty one at that. Here you will find steak & kidney pies, pork & apple pies, chicken curry pies, and vegetarian pies of cheese, onion & potato. Ingredients come packed into a lush, savory crust; and even a small pie goes a long way.

This being America, and English people having a serious sweet tooth, Pie Society also makes a specialty of sweet pies: apple/cinnamon, peach/ginger, mixed berry. There are even pies much more typical of a U.S. kitchen, such as lemon meringue and pecan.

Beyond pies, the dessert repertoire includes such marvelous old-world sweeties as Victoria sponge, bakewell tarts and jam tarts, custards and puddings. The selection is vast, and while not everything always is available in the cafe, it’s an education to simply browse the Pie Society website and learn high points of British baking.

Thre is a second Pie Society location at 115 Canal St. in Pooler, GA. (912-856-4785)
