[ONLINE] Why can't I select a pickup on Christmas or New Year's?
For special holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's; we have special menus with specific offerings for those holidays. When ordering for a specific holiday, please be sure to order from those specific menus--otherwise our website will not allow you to pickup on those holidays.
While not all pies listed on our regular menu are available to pre-order during the holidays, our more popular pies are listed on both menus. In these cases you still must order from the respective menu to pickup during certain dates:
- Orders to be picked up from December 5th - 20th: Regular Menu
- Orders to be picked up from December 21st - 31st: Holiday Menu
Can I pick up my pre-order on Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve?
Yes. We will be open on both Christmas Eve & New Year's Eve from 9am to 3pm.
Do I have to pre-pay for my Holiday order?
Yes. Due to the logistical coordination involved as well as the large number of pies allocated for Christmas & New Year's we must ask for payment beforehand.
Can I CANCEL or receive a REFUND for my order?
Yes! As long as you notify us before the end of business on the Saturdays before Christmas and New Year’s (respectively) you can change your pickup time or even cancel your order. If you paid by credit card, your card will be refunded for the items you are cancelling. If you paid with cash you will receive a voucher/s to redeem for pie/s in the future.
After those Saturdays all pre-orders will be locked in and ALL SALES ARE FINAL (no refunds will be given).
What is the last day that I can place a pre-order for Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve?
The final date to place pre-orders are:
- For Christmas Weekend: FRIDAY, DECEMBER 21 by 11:59pm

After the cut off date, pies can still be purchased on Christmas Eve & New Year's Eve on a walk-in basis only.
What happens if I don’t pick up my order on Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve?
We do our best to follow up with customers who may have forgotten to pick up their order. However, any orders NOT picked up on Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve will be placed in a different home for the holidays and will not be eligible for store credit or a refund.
-General Info for December-
What FULL SIZE pies will you be offering during December?
Our featured pie of the month is Strawberry Guava. It's one of our most popular pies and we haven’t had it in a while so you should definitely pick one up! However, our most popular flavors (Passion Pear, Caramel Apple, etc.) will also be available throughout the month as well. As our menu changes and updates weekly, definitely check with us early in the week for what we’re offering. As this is a busy time for us, our lower stocked pies may not be available as they sell out as the month goes on.
What MINI pies will you be offering during December?
Our mini pie menu changes weekly and may even change 2-3 times a week during the month as certain mini pies sell out and different mini pies are restocked. If you’d like to pick up mini pies, please check with us that morning as our menu may change from day to day. If you’d like to place a large order of mini pies (20 or more of one flavor), we encourage you to place an order at least a week in advance.
Will you be offering MINI PIES or SPECIALS on Christmas Eve & New Year's Eve?
For Christmas and New Year’s, most people are picking up full size pies for gatherings and celebrations. With that in mind our primary focus on those days will be to make sure that everyone that wants a full size pie can get one. Space in our ovens is limited and on these big holidays we give priority to full size pies. However, if space allows or if we have the time, we will bake mini pies or specials. Long story short, if you see them that day we have them, if you don’t see them on that day we don’t have them.
Should I order a pie ahead of time or should I pick one up?
We highly recommend placing an order in advance. We will be baking pies throughout the day during Christmas & New Year’s for walk-in customers, but supply will be dependent on what we have on hand when you come in to the shop.
When should I order my pies for Thanksgiving?
Now! Fortune favors the bold. Good things don’t come to those that wait. We highly encourage you to place an order ahead of time so you can get the pies that you want for Christmas & New Year's.
