HOLIDAY 2021: 59
Key Lime Pie, topped with fresh, homemade cream, is one of the top sellers.
Opened in July, the retail shop is a block south and across
the street from the original location now known as The Bake
House. It serves as a quaint and airy casual dining area where
customers can enjoy a coffee and cinnamon roll, a smaller size
quiche or one of the many delicious mini-tarts while waiting
for their order or while just taking a break after shopping in the
EGAD. The décor is as colorful as the smells are inviting.
A wall mural of a gigantic slice of pie, painted in bright orange,
blue and brown hues, is the focal point of the new retail store.
Designed and created by Sarah Peck, a local EGAD artist, it is
a stunning work that not only complements the store’s décor,
but offers photo opportunities for those wanting to capture and
document their “pie and quiche tasting” experience.
A multicolor wall mural of a gigantic slice of pie on the north wall at the new retail
shop, was painted by local EGAD artist Sarah Peck.
The new retail shop is just down the street from the bakery at 1431 Highland Ave.
Most of the dessert pies, meat and veggie pies, quiches
and tarts can be purchased unbaked and kept frozen until
served. All are sold with detailed baking instructions.
The expansion of the retail outlet at 1431 Highland Ave.
is designed to accommodate space in the rear of the store
to box and ship orders for local, overnight or next-day
delivery across the state and country.
Orders can be placed via the GrubHub app as well.
“We have had many customers who have expressed their
desire to gift our pies to relatives and friends for several
occasions, especially Father’s Day,” she said.
Joan’s Perfect Pie has won several awards in recent years
at the National Pie Council’s regional competition for its
Almond Joy and Strawberry Rhubarb pies.
“We are very humbled to be able to have not only
competed in these events, but to have received these
honors,” Flavin said.
“We welcome folks to stop by and bring their recipes,
thoughts, and of course, their appetite for any of our
bakery items. My staff and I, of whom I am very grateful
for, are always anxious to hear from customers about
their individual experiences of how they found us and
what they enjoyed most about our pies.”
