My wife and I watched Waitress last week and ever since have craved a really good, housemade, freshly baked pie. We were in Chapel Hill tonight and couldn't think of a place that would have one.
Allen and Sons makes a good pie but their hours rule them out as a dessert spot. The key lime pie at Blu is great but seems more of a special case than fitting a general craving. The tarts at Guglehupf, Southern Season, and Weaver Street are good but they aren't pie (is Weaver Street Pie any good?). The pie at Ye Olde Country Kitchen is the only thing there we don't crave.
Fruit pies, custard pies, cream pies...all fine by us. By the slice is ideal but in a pinch we're wiling to get the whole thing if it is really special. Bonus if the place also has good coffee.
