The Pie Hole

I’m an east sider so most of my eating & imbibing happens between Decatur & Midtown, with occasional forays up to Buckhead and an occasional trip to Sandy Springs. Aside from a visit to INC. Street Food (now closed) and Salt Factory Pub (get the mussels) a while back – Downtown Roswell has been off of my radar.

The Pie Hole

Before I headed up Georgia 400 for a photo shoot, I asked friends on Facebook for a few recommendations so that I could make a day of it, and Shameeka of Sugar Coma Events mentioned The Pie Hole right off the bat. How can I resist a place with a name like that? I got a kick out of their website address as well.

Walking into The Pie Hole is a bit like walking into someone’s colorful country kitchen, with busy bakers and a few tables and a display case full of sugary treats. Thankfully I was a bit full from a late lunch and ordered one slice of turtle pie with an irresistible layer of caramel on top. My camera-shy dining partner was conflicted between two pies (chocolate derby & buttermilk chess), and was offered to get both split, with a take-home box, which she gladly obliged. I hadn’t had a chess pie in a while and I love chocolate, they were both delicious.

The list of available pies is long and apparently the pies in the display case available for slices varies by the day. They’ve got a couple of books for sale on their bookshelves, including Tiny Food Party made by my friends Teri & Jenny! If you make it to the restaurant or have a flavor that you think I should try there, I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
