Pie Bar. The menu at this new Capitol Hill bakery is always changing, so it’s best to check out their Facebook page before heading in. They always serve both savory and sweet pies and my favorites are Chicken Pie for dinner and the Apple Crumble for dessert. The apple is made with Granny Smith apples, cinnamon, molasses and the best streusel in Seattle. Bonus: They also serve booze.

Families have been buying birthday cakes, pies, and other delightful desserts for decades, so you should definitely check it out if you’ve never stopped by.

Our buddies Meister Wu and Joseph Brooks aka Eras and Burn collaborated on their first piece together! The piece was part of an installation for the Jackson Street Music History Project.
