Magpie Bringing Sweet and Savory Pies to South Street

Magpie Artisan Pie Bakery & Boutique is coming to 1622 South Street this June. The twenty-seat bistro will include an eight-seat counter in a stylish bistro space.

Behind the pies is Holly Ricciardi who was an ad executive before turning fulltime to baking.
