1a Bron Street, Newtown
I have been wanting to visit this bakery/cafe for a while now, and since I’ve been holed up in my room studying, last Saturday I chose to eat away from home and try this out. As you can see from the picture above, Pie Tin looks like any other intimate cafe. It’s along a street in Newtown, secluded from other busier eateries outside.
So inside the cafe when you first enter is that you see a large square high-table, and little tables on one side of the cafe. My partner didn’t really like the large square table but I found it unique.
This self is where you help yourself to utensils and water.
I really liked their interior, it felt homely and comfortable.
Their selection of hot pies were interesting! There were a few ingredients which I never thought using in a pie, I will definitely come back and try them all.
What I loved about this place, was their savoury pie meal deals, it’s not pricey at all! You get one savoury pie and two cold/hot sides for the price of about $11-$13!
They also sold alcoholic beverages, like wine in a glass, beers, ciders and bubbles. Since I was going to study for the rest of that day, I couldn’t drink 🙁
While we waited, we were given this small bowl tins which matched with their concept. The service was friendly as well as quick, so we didn’t have to wait long for our orders.
Mexican chicken with red kidney beans and sour cream + two salad – I liked the combination of the red beans and sour cream, it gave the chicken a smoother and sweeter flavour.
Southern style shredded pork with apple and BBQ sauce – this tasted like any other meaty pie, I wasn’t quit fond of this because I found the flavouring too bland.
Banana milkshake $5.50 – was so delicious! It tastes fresh and with the added blended ice-cream it was refreshing!
Double roasters specialty coffee (Cappuccino) $3.50 – just made my day a lot better.
I’m going to go back and try their sweet menu, because from what I saw they were soooo appealing! It’s a bit of a drive if you do not live in the city, but if you’re close by or have time to burn then why not visit this cafe, to just chill and eat! Even though the meal is served on a small tin plate, it looks small but honestly it was the perfect size because you’re definitely going to feel full… if not get another pie!
