Pie Lady Café in Moorestown
Cozy-chic bakery-turned-eatery in a beautiful Victorian house, a popular stop on bustling Main Street. Local artwork adorns the walls. The furniture is a mix of old and new. The staff is warm, inviting and quick to assist.
Opened as a family bakery in 2008, the café later expanded into a former dental office next door to offer seating and new breakfast and lunch menus from executive chef Edgar Gamboa.
A breakfast must, the pancakes are topped with cinnamon butter—“sprinkled with fairy dust,” in one patron’s words. Go ahead—add blueberries, banana, chocolate chips or bacon, as you wish. For a strong start, go for the Red Eye, a brioche bun filled with crispy hash browns, pork sausage, fried egg, melted cheddar and chili aioli.
For lunch, consider goat cheese and fig on baguette, made with green goddess goat cheese spread, fig jam, prosciutto and arugula. Salads are oversized. Don’t miss the Brussels sprout salad with candied bacon.
Pies are exceptional and vary with the season. Scones, muffins and jumbo cookies are equally good.
There’s porch and patio seating in warm weather. Pies are sold whole or by the slice. Gluten-free products are available daily, but you’ll have to preorder whole gluten-free, sugar-free or vegan pies.
