Pot Pies in New Haven/Fairfield Counties

I would love a homemade pot pie (chicken, beef, turkey, or vegetable). Any idea on where I can get a great one?

    I don't know if one could categorize this as "great" but the Post Road Diner in Norwalk sometimes has a relatively home made chicken pot pie as a special. I'd just make my own, frankly, because it's pretty easy...

      Coscto makes a pretty good somewhat homemade tasting chicken pot pie.

        Philips Diner in Woodbury has amazing homemade chicken pies-just chicken and gravy inside...mmmmm

          Lyman Orchards in the middlefield/Wallingford area makes great take home pies. Small or family size

            I finally got to Dottie's Diner the other day, formerly Phillip's Diner in Woodbury. I have been wanting to go there for months and have dreamed about the pot pie. There were two pies on the menu. The Phillip's original and Dottie's which I was told was the same thing but with chicken and vegetables, so I ordered that one. Then waited 45 minutes for it to come out. I was so disappointed. The pie was so small, cracked open, dry as a bone and two of the chicken pieces were quite nasty. My friend's pot pie was not even completely cooked. It was not hot and neither were the potatoes which had a beef gravy on them instead of pot pie gravy and grilled califlower which had random pieces of cheese melted on them. The portion was so small, cold and ridiculously disappointing. I was so sad. It ruined my day.

              What a shame-I guess another one bites the dust....
              Wonder though, if the donuts were any good?

              The donuts were okay. My friend had the powdered one, very fresh and soft. I had the cinnamon, a lot more crunch and not so soft. I heard the guy that always made them is still making them.

                  Di Nova's grocery store in Middlebury, CT make their own and freeze them. They are the BEST! I always buy a couple and bring back to Baltimore in the winter.

                    I must say the Pot Pies at Big Y are really good. They are loaded with good roasted chicken, a good gravy and I think a few veggies...Big Y has very good rottiserie chickens that they use for the pies....
