Piecemeal Pies is a unique English-inspired meat pie shop, bakery, café, and hard cider bar. We are located in the heart of historic downtown White River Junction, Vermont.
Our passions are centered around ethical sourcing, customer service, and crafting the highest quality products. There’s a reason we won “Best Farm-to-Table Restaurant in Vermont 2018” by Yankee Travel Magazine!
We’re expanding our program to incorporate weekday breakfast, lunch and a full espresso bar. We are perfectionists about fantastic coffee and espresso drinks, incredible baked goods, local dry hard ciders, and farm-to-table breakfasts and lunches. After searching the state for the best coffee we could find, we are proud to serve King’s Row from Hanover NH. The beans are roasted within days of delivery, and we do them justice with phenomenal espresso drinks.
We strive to be the local destination for really good ingredients with down-to-earth professional customer service and a warm welcoming environment that encourages people to come in, come back, and hang out. This is a community café!
