Tucked away under a tree on Brown Street in Newtown, the Pie Tin is located in a heritage building, the interior is flanked with glass cabinets brimming with pastry delights and a communal dining table where friends and strangers alike can bond over their mutual love of pies. Start with a savoury pie, with a plethora of options to satiate both carnivores and vegetarians alike. They serve their pies on old timey silver tin plates which make you feel like a extra in a film about the gold rush. If you're game enough to sample the sides, you can either stick to the classics: garlic mash and mushy peas.
As you eat your meal, you will likely feel your eyes constantly glancing over at the cabinet housing the sweet pies. And truth be told, you will probably need that long to decide which of the two-dozen-or-so options to go for. From the classics - pumpkin, lemon meringue, and apple crumble - to the food-coma-inducing - Tim Tam, Oreo, and coconut cream and rhubarb, you'll find something worth saving room for.
