New: Breakfast Pies at Atticus Creamery

The Third Street bake shop has a pair of fresh, egg-yummy morning meals.

To portray the concept of "pie for breakfast" as being something novel and never-yet-tried is to not understand the lure of a half-eaten pan of apple crumble as the first coffee of the day percolates nearby.

In short, we've all grabbed a fork before 7 in the ol' a.m., the better to finish off last night's tempting dessert.

There is much more to explore in the way of pies for breakfast, however, even beyond quiche, a common cameo-maker at the breakfast table. Look to Atticus Creamery + Pies, on Third Street, and gaze upon their new Breakfast Pies.

"Baked fresh every morning," the pies both include a front-and-centered egg, plus a few other goodies one is apt to find in a classic omelet.

Over here is the Ham & Mushroom Egg Pie, and this way we find the Bacon-Wrapped Broccoli Egg Pie. The pie hallmarks are found in the soft-to-the-fork crust, while the morning meal reigns with that pretty center stage yolk.

True, it's not apple crumble, or chocolate chiffon, but do you need a dose of either to make a start of the day? OK, that's a debatable question, with a few correct answers. But consider how fortifying a protein-packed pie can be, all will still technically remaining a pie.

Other new pie flavors include Bourbon Walnut Pie, Apple Pie with Peanut Butter Crumble, and Egg Tart. Again, all pretty tempting at breakfast, but truly made for a 3 o'clock afternoon pick-me-up or a late-night indulgence.
