Now Open: Pink Pie
Celebrated South Florida-based pie shop, Pink Pie, has now opened its flagship location in Wynwood. Situated in the heart of Miami, near Wynwood Walls, the 900-square-foot pie and coffee shop offers a New York-inspired minimalistic and modern space where visitors can enjoy handmade mini pies and a well-crafted coffee and beverage program.
Pink Pie brings an all-new innovative approach to the world of pie with mini pies that are small in size but bold in flavor. The pies are three inches, made fresh daily, with sweet and savory options. The company innovates in flavors and uses modern techniques to enhance the pie experience. The kitchen is constantly creating new flavors, including vegan and gluten-free options. The Wynwood shop features a rotation of sweet options and savory options, with some flavors being part of the permanent menu and others change according to season and special holidays. Permanent flavors include Oreo Nutella and Key Lime. Limited-edition favorites include Tiramisu; Caramel Pretzel, and Hot Cocoa among others.
Drawing on the owners’ experience of working at Michelin starred restaurants in New York City, husband and wife duo Michael McGowan and Paloma Machado-McGowan create special flavors that might seem ordinary at a first glance but are far from it. For instance, the S’Mores pie is smoked with hickory wood and uses burnt marshmallows inside the filling, recreating the s’mores campfire experience.
Savory pies include Bacon, Egg and Cheese; and Chicken Onion Confit among others. All pies are the same price regardless of flavor. Savory pies are $3.50 and for sweet flavors, the larger the purchase quantity, the lower the individual price per item. Pies start at $3.50 for one pie; 2 pies for $6; 4 pies for $11; 6 pies for $15; 8 pies for $19 and 12 pies for $28.
Apart from mini pies, Pink Pie features “pies’cream sandwiches” (Choice of two pies with a scoop of ice cream, $6.50) and pie milkshakes ($7) with the available flavors of the day. The shop also offers a full beverage program that complements the pies, including coffee, tea, and coming soon craft beer and wine. Pink Pie has partnered up with Counter Culture Coffee to bring the highest quality coffee. The coffee menu includes espresso-based drinks as well as manual pour over. Prices of beverages range from $3 to $9.
