Apple and Peach and Berry -- Oh, Pie?

Wednesday is my birthday and instead of going out for birthday cake, I want birthday pie. My favorite pies are peach, blueberry and apple. Any good pie places? Even better if they are metro accessible.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

  1. Hello Atlantis - Sara Lee Pies at Hill High Orchard? Wow that's almost the equivalent of finding out Santa isn't real. It has been awhile since we made the trek out to Round Hill and I couldn't find the article searching the Wash Post website - how along ago was it sold? Sad.

      The sale was at least five years ago, maybe longer. They were, at first, going out of business, which kept me driving out there regularly in the hope that my constant presence would dissuade them. When the sale came through, it was a relief, but the pies changed, and when I read the Post article, I understood.

      I couldn't find the article, either. I suspect it's already in the archives, which costs to retrieve. I think the Post archives articles as quickly as the NY Times, which is really annoying.

    2. You can order pies from Dangerously Delicious Pies in Baltimore. They are yummy!!!

      1. IMHO the best pies in the DC Metro area are out Virginia Rt 7 to Round Hill, VA and Hill High Country Store at 35246 Harry Byrd Hwy. Every flavor imaginable and worth a weekend run. Call for selection and hours. 540/ 338-7173 or 800/ 232-8760.

          You might want to try Kramer Books in Dupont Circle. They have excellent cakes and pies. Had the cherry pie there a couple of weeks ago. Delicious, but a little overpriced. Happy B-Day.

            There was a really interesting article about Round Hill in the Washington Post not long ago - maybe before Christmas.

            Turns out their pies are all from Sara Lee. The article ended with a description of the Sara Lee boxes stacked up behind the store on the loading dock.

            This is only since the original owners sold the place, so my heart wasn't entirely broken. Their baked goods - oh, the apple turnovers!!! - were brilliant.
