With cupcakes, ice cream, frozen custard, and now pie, Capitol Hill has got your family’s sweet tooth covered. Dani Cone’s High 5 pies have been available at her Fuel coffee shops (and a few select other spots around town) for a while now, but the pie takes center stage at the new kid friendly High 5 Pie shop.
Their pie fillings range from sweet to savory and come in an assortment of shapes and sizes. Kids will have fun deciding between a flipside (a hand pie), a cutie pie (pie for one, baked in a muffin tin), a piejar (a mini pie in a mason jar), or a traditional slice. And no one will be able to resist a piepop (a pie lollipop, which would also make a terrific party favor for your next birthday party)! If you’re really feeling indulgent, go à la mode, with selections from both Molly Moon’s and Bluebird ice cream.
Seating is primarily bar stool seating along the window facing Madison. It can be fun to watch the traffic and buses go by, but they do have one large table for little ones that aren’t quite ready to climb up on a bar stool. Or you can take your pie to go. In addition to the single serving options, they have whole pies, take and bake pies, and even a mile wide pie, which serves 30. Grab a pint of ice cream, and you’re good to go.
Before you leave, take a peek through the glass door near the back hallway to see the bakers at work. And be sure to follow them on Twitter to find out about some more unusual specials, like fruit loop cream pie!
