Where can you become this rule breaker? – Pie for Breakfast.
Nestled along the corner of North Craig Street, Pie for Breakfast is a corky little spot where you can brunch or sit at the counter to grab a slice of pie and a cup of coffee.
I snagged a stool at the counter and scanned the menu. As I perused, I noticed little touches of the restaurant’s personality – the cartoon cow creamer, mirrors scattered along the walls of different shapes and sizes and a cut-out of Baby Yoda staring right back at me beside the drink menu.
I was in the mood for a classic – sunny-side-up eggs, potatoes, toast, and bacon. Each egg dish comes with buttered salt-rising toast and the option of grits or potatoes. I paired my classic breakfast with a creamy chai latte that pepped up my Sunday morning.
I cracked open the yolks and started mixing and stacking every item on my plate. The Thoma Meat Market bacon was the best of both worlds – crispy, thick and fatty.
By the time my plate was clean, I was pretty full, but you can’t go to a place called Pie for Breakfast without trying the pie. That would be comparable to going to a BBQ joint and only ordering a salad.
Since I was already riding the bacon train, I selected the maple bacon pie. The pie was similar to their famous vinegar pie, but with a maple flavor and crushed up bacon bits all throughout the slice. The taste reminded me of chocolate pancakes and bacon – here I come second breakfast.
If a slice isn’t enough and you want the whole pie, they take orders with a 48-hour notice and also give the option to order carry-out at the counter. The menu is ever-changing with new pie, quiche, and omelet options, so you never know what they might be cooking up next.
