It’s been a year since we first covered Sister Pie, and this popup bakery won’t be a popup much longer.
They’re in the midst of building out a brick and mortar bakery where you’ll be able to snag SP goodies every day. (For now, you can get your pie fix at Parker Street Market and Germack Coffee Roasting Co.)
The brick and mortar pie shop is on track to open this April. It’s going to be right across the street from Parker Street Market. They’ve been enlisting friends and family to help with the build out.
If you haven’t met Sister Pie yet, allow us to introduce you. Sister Pie is the brainchild of Lisa Ludwinski. She grew up in metro Detroit then moved to New York, baked up a storm (including a tenure at Momofuku Milk Bar), moved back to Michigan and kept baking (she studied at Zingerman’s and Avalon). The team also includes Anji Reynolds, an intern turned pastry pro.
Sister Pie introduces a new menu of seasonal pies and treats each month. January’s menu, for example, included a roasted pear and fig crumble pie, honey lemon meringue and Sister Pie’s signature salted maple – a flavor that’s available year-round. February’s menu is almost ready to drop, so keep an eye on their Facebook page for an announcement.
Buckwheat chocolate chip cookies also make a regular – and delicious – appearance. A couple times a year they make shortbread cookies; their lovely lavender grapefruit is scheduled to return to the menu this month. And don’t even get us started on the hand pies. When they open, we hope there are walls and walls of hand pies. We’ve never had one we didn’t love. Hand pies come in flavors like seven layer dip, cheesy potatoes, or sweet potato, feta and sage. They make a tasty snack, or you can pair a couple pies together and make it a lunch. Yup, you can eat pie for lunch and not feel bad about it.
On Tuesdays (hey, today is Tuesday!), Sister Pie takes over Parker Street Market in West Village and brings in a bevy of scrumptious baked goods. We’re fans of the sweet potato galette with za’atar spices and a sunny-side-up egg on top.
To help open their brick and mortar bakery in West Village, they’ve started an Indiegogo campaign and are hosting a 24-hour Dance-Break-A-Thon this Friday, Feb. 6 at Paramita Sound. It’s going to be a raucous 24 hours of dancing, local DJs, drinks, and snacks. A $5 donation to their Indiegogo campaign gets you in on the party, or a $10 suggested donation at the door. For more information, check out their event page on Facebook or their Indiegogo page.
