Petsi's Pies on Putnam & the really good breakfast at Petsi's people mentioned a year ago??

I just tried Petsi's Pies on Putnam Ave. Yummmmm!!! I love their coffee and scones. I definitely want to go back for pie. Anyhow, I remember about a year ago or so people were talking about an amazing breakfast in Petsi's Pies or near it where the lady was from South America or Latin America and did an amazing breakfast that people raved about. Is that still around? If so, where is it exactly??

  1. Not sure if they are doing the latin breakfast anymore, but it would have been good to ask them while you were there.

      I didn't think of it at the was later in the morning when it occurred to me a conversation on the boards a long time ago about the Latin breakfast.

    2. BBG, I only know the Somerville location (across Beacon St from RF O'SUllivan's), but if you go to Petsi's once cold weather sets in, look for the ham, gorgonzola, and caramelized onion biscuit. I believe it's a cold weather item, and not made every day - I load up, individually wrap and freeze them. There's no better lunch than homemade soup with one of these warmed-up biscuits. Another favorite is the cream cheese coffee cake. I, like some other posters, am not crazy about the pie crust. It's on the dense, tough side - this is not so much a complaint as an acknowledgment that when a small bakery is making dozens of crusts every day, they are unlikely to have the time to work with a more delicate, harder-to-roll/handle, dough. But the fillings are top-notch, so overall the pies are still quite good.

        They have those biscuits this time of the year.
        Usually on weekends, I bought some 2 weeks ago on a Saturday morning.
        They are outstanding!
