Cycling Claremont: I Like Pie Bake Shop...
And How! There is some good stuff in this new little personal pie-erie / bakery. They have an extensive menu of pies and other similar baked goods (empanadas), ranging from fruit pies, to custard and cream pies, and pot pies. There are the traditional, seasonal flavors, such as apple, various berries, and pumpkin, alongside some very interesting combinations - the banana, sweet potato, pecan one I savored the other day was killer. A steaming cup of Intelligencia coffee partnered nicely with the pie, and refueled me following a quick morning ride.
don't let the lack of a distinctive sign fool you, tasty things await through those doors. even though i leaned my bike against the building, the doors open onto the public plaza (175 N. Indian Hill Blvd), so there are plenty of bike racks, and seating, nearby.
I am not sure about the portion size of the pot pies (though they sound perfect for lunch on a cold winter day), but the sweet pies are what are called jelly jar pies, not slices. The personal-sized treats are about the size of a muffin, so you can relax and enjoy it there, or take it to go. You can check their website for the full menu and other info by clicking here. The I Like Pie Bake Shop is yet another bike-able local business worth checking out.
