Whether you’ve got a hankering for a classic French apple pie or a craving for a savory quiche, A la Mode Pies’ newest location in West Seattle is chock-full of sumptuous surprises and decadent details. And that’s not all. Along with the new digs comes new sweet and savory offerings including pie-inspired boozy milkshakes, pies made with Jack’s BBQ meats and gluten-free whole pies. Read on for eight reasons you need to visit this newest slice of heaven.

1. Signature A la Mode Pies. We love how A la Mode Pies has always offered a unique menu. From their Blue Hawaiian pie with crushed pineapple and a touch of coconut to their heavenly Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse pie, A la Mode’s inspiring pies win us over every time. And the new West Seattle location includes all of our favorites that are seriously to die er pie for.

2. Savory Pies. In addition to a full menu of yummy fruit and cream pies, the West Seattle location offers an array of savory pies that are oh-so delicious. Savory half pies and full slices come in flavors like Slow Braised Beef and Potato, Spinach and Feta and Chicken Pot Pie and are made with Jack’s BBQ meats. Psst… we recommend the Mexican-inspired pie called Hey, Hey Ole. It’s a creative spin on an old family favorite recipe.

3. Boozy Milkshakes. What do you get when you mix your favorite pie flavor with whiskey, hard cider or tequila? A boozy milkshake, of course! A la Mode Pies’ West Seattle location offers rich, creamy, boozy milkshakes that are inspired by the pies themselves and made with scoops of Husky Deli ice cream. Named after West Seattle locations, these milkshakes are not only delish, but clever too. Psst… we recommend trying the Admiral Apple or Lincoln Park Lime.

4. Pie Fries. It’s hard to resist french fries, but pie fries—made from real flaky pie crust—are completely irresistible. Your little sugar addicts will go bananas over the tried and true cinnamon and sugar pie fries and everyone in your crew will love the parmesan and herbs combo. Looking for a sophisticated taste? Try the cinnamon hazelnut.

5. PiesCream. I scream. You Scream. We all scream for PiesCream, which makes a specialty pie from A la Mode even better. Following in the footsteps of their beloved, signature pies, A la Mode’s handpicked ice cream pretty much makes us giddy. We recommend the Bourbon Butterscotch or the kid-approved Blue Hawaiian.

6. Gluten-Free Pies. We wouldn’t want our gluten-free friends to miss out on the A la Mode experience. And now, they don’t have to! A la Mode Pies’ West Seattle location now offers take and bake gluten-free whole pies in all of your favorite flavors including strawberry rhubarb.

7. Delectable Details. From the hand-framed art on the wall and the eye-catching chandelier to the tiny, carefully selected pie-wedges on the outside of the doors, every detail in this new location has been artfully considered. And it shows! There’s also plenty of tongue-in-cheek merchandise to choose from: mugs that ask “Pie Curious?” and shirts that tout “That Pie, Dough.” You’ll want to stop in just to see the stunning new space and the clever merchandise.

8. Specialty Goods. In addition to A la Mode’s sweet and savory offerings, you’re going to love all of the specialty items available at the West Seattle shop. There’s the adorable pie babies; mini pies that come in packs of three; and the lolliepies, mini pies shaped like lollipops. You can even take a pie making class from the man behind it all! Psst… rumor has it, this new location will soon offer a happy hour that starts promptly at you guessed it? 3:14, as a nod to the mathematical Pi. It just keeps getting better!
