Photo by myself at The Little Pie Company, at 9th Avenue and 43rd Street.
This little establishment sells pies, cakes and cupcakes to the public and restaurants.
I heard that it all started when an unemployed actor pedaled his apple pie to a neighborhood restaurant (the store is located in the theater district). An order was placed and business began. That was 20 years ago.
Now around Thanksgiving, people line the street for apple, blueberry and cherry pies. They make key lime pie, carrot cake and German chocolate cake, too.
I once passed by around Thanksgiving and thought it was a picket line!
I used to work near the above Little Pie Company. For birthdays, the office would order a couple of their delicious cakes or pies. I have nothing but fond memories of their desserts.
Mark and I visited with his Mom on Sunday, to celebrate her birthday. We had some mini-pies and cakes. It brought back memories.
You can order their delicious goods online, here.
