Pie for dinner and dessert? Sounds good to us. Particularly when the slices come from the oven of baker Stephanie Thaw, at her six-week-old retro Sweetie’s Pie Diner, dedicated to the art of the pie. The savories stray from expected; neither pizza nor quiche, they feature flat doughs topped with inspired combos like shiitake mushroom, corn and asiago, or Mexican-spiced sweet potato, or the bevy of seasonal veggies pictured below. And while these pies are vegetarian, even carnivores will be wooed by Thaw’s flaky butter-and-cream-cheese and nutty polenta-and-quinoa crusts. Not to mention the grand finale—a sweet slice for dessert, plus a strong cup of joe.
