A new pie bakeshop, the I Like Pie Bake Shop, opened a couple of Saturdays ago in Claremont.
The shop, which specializes in both sweet and savory pies of all shapes and sizes, from whole size (10″) round pies down to jelly jar pies (muffin-sized) to toaster pastry-shaped (Pop Tartesque) hand pies to empanada-like fold overs and rounds to lollipop pies.
It’s kind of like a cupcake shop for those who prefer pies to cakes. A cuppiery?
Their selection is not limited to pies, however, as delicious pictures of cookie bars were spotted on the bakery’s social media feeds.
Also, if you plan on visiting I Like Pie, go early. We stopped by tonight just after 5 p.m., only to be greeted by a nearly-empty display case. The chicken pot pie sample I was offered made me want to make a return visit, however. For the best selection, we were told to get there before 1 p.m.
I Like Pie, 175 N. Indian Hill Blvd., Suite 102B, is open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday through the holidays.
Much thanks to reader Judith for tipping us off about this one.
