Herstory 

Heaps of pasties & a business postcard from the first generation of family pie makers.

โœจOld World meets New Worldโœจ

The Pie Shop is an independent, small food business based in Oakland, focusing on British pasties (savory handpies) and baked goods. 

The owner (& Queen๐Ÿ‘‘) of The Pie Shop began the company in 2012 as a second generation reincarnation of her father's lifetime pursuits in British baking & pubs. While interning for local nonprofit, Womenโ€™s Initiative for Self-Employment, Nellie felt the familial pull from desk to kitchen and dusted off her father's recipes.

The Pie Shop seeks to offer homeland favorites to British expats & exiles while also introducing Americans to properly prepared working class English staples. As a company, The Pie Shop hopes to offer a qualified yet irreverent take on British culture, customs & food.
