Overall Rating


Stopped by because they wrote on a sign outside that they had gluten free homemade hand pies. A lot of variety for the flavors! I chose the Chicken Curry but there were others like lamb, lamb and feta, potato and cheese, pizza, korean spicy chicken. The staff was very friendly and the hand pie was delicious. It cost me around 10$ for a hand pie. They told me that they change gloves/ utensils and isn’t any contamination in the kitchen.
