THE CO-OWNERS INSIGHTS: (Steven Torres)


What is it about your menu that makes it so Good? What's the key or secret to making these items so much different than anywhere else?
"The crust! Our crust is what makes these so good. Its perfectly made with just the right amount of butter, flour and other ingredients to make for the unique flavor profile it has. The flakey light texture comes from the specific methods we use to bake the pies. Crust texture and flavor is the real key. We also use only the best local ingredients, nothing is ever frozen or processed."
