The Pie Tin, Newtown

pie, pie, PIE – it’s what I’ve been craving for a while now and there’s no better place than The Pie Tin. Hidden around the corner off King Street, on a street between 7 Eleven and Clem’s Chicken Shop, lies a small pie bakery and cafe where sweet and savoury pies are made and baked daily.



The sweet pies range from $5.80 to $8.50 with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an additional $1 or dollop cream for $0.50.


The savoury pies range from $5.80 to $6.80.


Make it a meal by selecting 2 options of sides/salads for $11 to $12.




Slow roasted beef brisket, hickory smoke & mushrooms meal with potato salad + coleslaw ($12) 

J thought that this was the best  pie he’s ever had! Better than La Renaissance (The Rocks) and even Laurent (Bondi Westfield) for their generous serving and value for money.


Spicy cajun style pork slow cooked with corn and black beans ($6.80)

There were so many different pies to choose from in the cabinet – the decision was difficult to make! I opted for the above, and it was definitely a great choice. The pork was very well cooked with a touch of spice (but not too spicy) – just the way I like it. The pastry had a thick base and a flaky top.


Lemon meringue pie ($7.50)

J and I were both really bloated from the savoury pies that we were close to leaving without first checking out the dessert pies. However, as they sat gleaming in the cabinet, I found it hard to resist. Afterall, it was the main reason why I was so eager to visit this cafe in the first place! I chose the lemon meringue pie because it looked a little lighter and less ‘beasty’ that the others. The lemon had a rich sour taste, mixed with a layer of sweet fluffy meringue on a soft buttery tart. We struggled to finish it, but it didn’t defeat us as I devoured the very last bite.

I will definitely come back next time for the sunday lamb roast pie kipfler potato, pumpkin & mint gravy AND maybe also the strawberry smoothie pie!
