Pots & Pans Pie Co. 4915 N. College Ave.

This post is long over do. I found this place a few months ago and have been several times. Pat and I came her for pie after we ate at Upland. They offer both sweet and savory pies and I have sampled both, however I don’t have pictures of them all.

This my latest slice from yesterday, a Bourbon chocolate pecan pie. I had forgotten how well Bourbon and Chocolate go together especially a dark chocolate. The innate smokiness and sweetness of the liquor coupled with the slight bitterness of the Chocolate makes for a delicious union. Add all of the above to the normal lusciousness of a pecan pie and you get an amazing hunk of pie. The bakers use leaf lard from Smoking Goose so you can imagine the flakiness of the crust.

Margarita lime pie
Salted Caramel and Pear.

This place offers savory pies as well as sweet. The pie slices are $5, galettes are $6. A 9 inch sweet pie is $25. They offer savory pies in two sizes 6 inch for $10 to $11 and 9 inch for $35.

Beef and mushroom

Their beef and mushroom pie was the first savory offering I tried and it was excellent. It was easily as good cold as hot. Possibly better. I also tried a 6 inch sausage and gravy and a 6 inch meatball and mozzarella. The fillings on the later two were good just not as good as their beef and mushroom.

So if you like pie now you know where you can get your fix. If for some reason you are on the fence about pie get to the Pie Co. I think that will get you off that fence.

    Now this place looks interesting. I liked your descriptions – really good job on the text.

    My first thought was “can a place that just does pies survive as a business?” But then your last pic showed a beef and mushroom pie. So that could be lunch, right?

    You didn’t mention if they had tables. I’m going to assume they do. Have you ever visited a place that was strictly take-out? I started thinking of take-out when I saw it was just a pie place. The chocolate bourbon pie really looked scrumptious. I’d like a glass of milk with that! I’m going to look them up and see they have a menu online.

    Did I ever tell you about the fabulous dinner we had at Studio C? I have pics too.

    • Yep I forgot to mention the limited in door seating. As for beverage they have milk as well as coffee and water. I believe they just started offering a Cold Brew as well.

  2. Man, I gotta get there! Jake doesn’t like to drive in Broad Ripple, but the boy one does! Haha! I maybe can get one of them to at least drop me to pick up carryout! 😛

    • Well 49th and College isn’t too bad. The Red Line constuction has F’d up most of College but this area has already been worked over. I think having them drop you and drive around the block may be the best idea. It is so worth it.
