The Blue Stove, Williamsburg - kid-friendly brooklyn

Here’s a good generalisation for you. Aussies love their pies. After two years living in the US, my husband and I really crave the occasional savoury pie, ala Aussie-style.

We finally ventured to Williamsburg to test drive The Blue Stove, after hearing that they might satiate our pie cravings.

The Blue Stove – super-cute, old-fashioned interior.

The Blue Stove is such a sweet, old-fashioned store, with a serious hipster edge (hey, it’s in Williamsburg! Of course it’s a hipster pie store!). We loved the rustic wood, long communal dining bench, and pies tied up with string.

Pies of the day!

The pot pie range is wide – savouries like vegetable, pulled pork and chicken. They also have a wide range of seasonal fruit pies, such as apple, strawberry rhubarb and key lime. Our advice – you need to try both, so go with friends so you can share both savoury and sweet.

Waiting for pies.

I ordered a vegetable pot pie, and it was delicious. Root vegetables delicately seasoned with flaky pastry. The only thing it was missing was a good dousing of tomato sauce (that’s ketchup, US friends). Or maybe this is just how Aussies eat it. Anyway – if you love your pies with tomato sauce/ketchup, BYO.

Cheese tries her first pie – tucks right in, like a little Aussie.

I also ordered an iced tea. I wasn’t a fan of the flavour they had already brewed, so the helpful staff offered to make me my iced tea of choice from scratch. Yay!

Moving on to the dessert round, we split a strawberry rhubarb pie (make sure to ask for ice-cream on top). It was everything a pie should be – stuffed with fruit and bursting out of the pastry. Yum. We will all be back for more!
