Gem 10: Dessert @ Pouch Pies
Yesterday, I headed downtown between classes to try dessert at Pouch Pies. Pouch Pies is fairly new to Athens. It opened about a year ago & features savory pies from around the world. It is family-owned and the owners proudly boast their South African heritage. The pies all have punny names. Although Pouch Pies has primarily savory pies, they usually have about 4-5 sweet pie offerings. Inside, you’ll find a large screen TV and a wide-selection bar for a sports pub feel.
I ordered the Sweet Potato Pie. It is a cold dessert pie because of the sweet potato puree inside. It is topped with fresh whipped cream and nutmeg. All pies are homemade.
Things they did well:
+ presentation: funky plate & wooden spoon
+ sweet potato puree
+ portion sizes
**Next time, I’ll come for British Wednesdays with pies on mashed potatoes and topped with gravy!**
<<Thank you Pouch Pies for a unique pie experience!!>>
Location: Downtown Athens on Broad St.
Open for lunch, dinner, drinks, and sweets Monday thru Saturday.
