Orange County Is Poppin’
Congrats to San Diego’s beloved Pop Pie Co. , which is expanding to Orange County with a new pie shop in Costa Mesa slated to open mid-September!
Building on the success of the original homegrown, all-day eatery and coffee bar that opened in 2016 in San Diego’s University Heights neighborhood, Pop Pie Co.’s Orange County location will serve its signature sweet and savory pies, coffee and ice cream staples.
New Pie Shop In Town
Pop Pie Co. co-owners Steven Torres and Executive Chef Gan Suebsarakham will bring butter-crusted new life to the space formerly occupied by Aussie-style bakery Pie-Not with their eatery’s signature individual sized pies that put modern spins on classics—think Green Hog and Cheese, vegan favorite Roasted Veggies and Yellow Curry, and, of course, traditional offerings including Chicken Pot Pie, Aussie Meat Pie and Steak & Ale.
How Sweet It Is
On the sweet side, favorites like Coconut Cream Pie and Key Lime Pie are available as slices or whole 9” pies, as well as traditional hand pies including Guava Cream Cheese and Lemon Curd & Mixed Berry. The shop also has a full-service coffee bar, featuring beans from Portland’s Heart Coffee Roasters, and select small-batch ice cream flavors from Pop Pie Co.’s sister scoop shop, Stella Jean’s, will be available in the form of PiesCream, a decadent menu item starring both pie and ice cream.
In Pie We Crust
Pop Pie Co.’s mission is to elevate traditional British and Australian pies in a modern way, creating a product that tastes familiar but is the best possible iteration, made with high quality ingredients.
“We love the enthusiastic response we get from customers day in and day out about our homestyle pies,” said Torres. “When Pie-Not approached us about the opportunity to bring our product to a new community of pie lovers in Orange County, we didn’t hesitate. We’ve had plans for expansion for a while now, and this was a perfect match.”
Chef Gan Suebsarakham’s signature all-butter crust stars in a rotating menu of sweet and savory pies made in-house daily in a variety of sizes and formats, from mini pies to hand pies to classic pies.
The globally inspired menu incorporates flavors from Australia, Europe and Asia into specialty pies, with many inspired by Chef Gan’s Thai heritage.
See you there!
