Piecemeal Pies
Price range: US$10 - US$20
Description: Piecemeal Pies is a British inspired pie shop and local hard cider bar in White River Junction, VT. We specialize in savory meat pies, but really, we love our vegetables and sweets just as much. Using local, organic, and seasonal ingredients is what we’re all about, so we work with farmers to make sure we always have the best vegetables, fruits, and meats possible. We believe that starting with exceptional ingredients grown and raised by people we know, and committing to quality all along the way makes for the tastiest pies. We want to make food that’s delicious for the community we love. And we want to offer the best cider around.

The food here is different and really extraordinary. Their pies, of course, are great but they also have wonderful breakfasts (like Kimchi fried rice with egg!!) and fabulous pastries. If you're in a rush, it can be a problem. The preparation of the food here--even when it's slow--is what I can only say unfathomably slow. It always happens and I really can't figure out why. But it's great. So, allow extra time--and enjoy!

Found this little place while wondering around WRJ. Had lovely trout on toasted Brioche the first time. Delicious. Had Pecan waffles with a whiskey sauce the second time. They have two menus, breakfast and brunch, each offers a delicious range. All three of us had something different and shared. The others had corned beef hash and were in heaven.

Had breakfast here and found it very enjoyable. The home cooked biscuit tasted great and was filling. I really liked the happy and outgoing personalities of the staff, really great in the morning!
A cup of coffee, read the paper, enjoy a biscuit. Can't go wrong.

Located in part of a former dime-store this attractively outfitted place sells excellent baked goods, including meat and veggie pies or salads...enough to make a meal, not just dessert treats. The rabbit pie was excellent, as was the strawberry/rhubarb pie. The prices are a little higher than one would hope, but we treated it as dinner, rather than as a snack.

My friend who lives in the area had been wanting to try this place. We had a meat pie, a veg pie, a soda, and a lemonade. $35. Really? Not even a little side salad with the pies.The crusts were not tender or flaky--I understand they have to stand up to a lot of handling, but they were really tough. Couldn't identify any bacon in the rabbit/bacon pie or any cheese in the potato/artichoke/cheese pie. Cool atmosphere and the desserts looked yummy...

Interesting observations...

Rabbit and Bacon pie is made with local pastured rabbit and local bacon (they are all braised together in red wine and rich chicken stock) in a hearty $13 serving. Our most popular pie!

Potato Cheese and Artichoke pie is $10. We make a fondue of sharp Vermont cheddar and Italian fontina, and 3 ounces goes into every pie. Quite hearty and satisfying!

A green salad with herbs and mustard dressing is only $4. The greens are always local, organic, and flavorful.

I'm not sure which soda you got, but for $4 we make in house sodas to order. Our most popular features local organic unsweetened black currant juice. We juice lemons for our elderflower lemonade every morning.

The pies are made with a classic British hot water crust, which is meant to be crispy, flakey, and sturdy. They are exactly as they should be and stem from centuries of baking tradition. Next time, try our curried vegetable pasty. This hand pie is made with a more familiar flakey pastry and is incredible!

Our prices are not only very reasonable, but are actually a great deal when considering the quality of local organic ingredients used. Many farmers in the community helped to make your lunch! Check out our website for more example menus and pricing.

Also, we just started serving breakfast. Nothing over $10!

We're very proud to be cooking up such wholesome food in White River Junction!
