Are you a cake or pie person? As the picture suggests, I’m actually going to talk about pies. Sorry cake eaters.
Dear pie eater, you will absolutely love Mission Pie. Another gem in the Mission neighborhood, on the corner of Mission and 25th, Mission Pie offers a selection of pies, from banana cream pie to ginger and pear pie . Their big, rustic communal tables, smiling employees, and scrumptious sweet and savory pies makes this place look as San Francisco as it gets.
On a sunny Sunday afternoon, my friend and I walked into Mission Pie and stood in line eying the pies on display, not being able to make a decision. I asked one of the employees if I can get in the back and take pictures for my blog. As I was back there taking pictures, I wished I had also asked for a fork and permission to have a bite of every single one of them.
Having guessed that my shameless request for a fork would have probably been rejected, we ordered the lemon pie and the walnut pie. I also got a cappuccino to go with it. The crust was just a right about of thickness and the pie not too sweet. My favorite between the two was the walnut pie.
We devoured our pies and didn’t have room to try another piece, but will definitely be back on probably more than one occasion to try the rest. I should also mention that they have vegan pies as well.
If you are having sunday blues, hungry for something sweet late at night, or if you just have a sweet tooth, pay a visit to Mission Pie. The pies will put a smile on your face and your tummy will be happy.
