Great savory pies at new pie shop, PIE, on Fremont Ave
Wonderful individual (one serving) savory pies ($4.95) with tender crusts and high-quality, fresh ingredients: tarragon chicken, shepherd's pie, curry vegetable - all delicious! They also have a breakfast pie in the a.m. and sweet pies in mini servings. I recommend you go soon, before long lines start forming down the street!

I am so glad to hear it’s good ... High 5 Pie on Capital Hill is NOT and I so wanted it to be. I had 4 of their savory pies, Macaroni & Cheese, Spinach & Feta, Taco pie and Broccoli, Mushroom & Cheddar. The Macaroni & Cheese was dry and uncheesy, it should have oozed cheese sauce when I cut into. The Spinach & Feta was so salty that it tasted fishy or like kelp. The taco pie was the best but did taste just like the taco mix from the supermarket. The broccoli, mushroom and cheddar was OK but there was no detectable broccoli in it. It was such a disappointment that we couldn’t be bothered to order any of the sweet pies.
Unfortunately I have to agree with you about High 5. I was very excited as well, and very let down by the savory pies. The broccoli and cheddar one was really dry and not good at all. The sweet pies are fine. Nothing exciting and for the prices they really should be better. They are good, just not worth the price - which I know needs to be high due to the labor involved, but in order to make it worthwhile they need to be better. I know some others disagree, and the shop is cute and staffed by good employees, I just had really wanted it to be better.
[To anyone jumping in to read this discussion. This thread has a content integrity issue... The first post praises Fremont Pie. But all the replies, to date, concern a dislike for High 5 Pie. I think it would be easy for a casual reader to mistakenly assume that the negative comments refer to Fremont PIE. Please read posts carefully in sequence.]
My husband loves Fremont PIE. He's been there several times. He's very choosy about pie. His faves are the pecan pie and english beef pie.
We have not been to High 5.
(As for myself, I am gluten-free, so must avoid pie crust. )
My husband and I tried a couple of savory pies from them this afternoon--pepper steak and ham and eggs. The crust was tasty and the fillings were quite good as well.
We also got a small maple cream pie, which was outstanding. The maple flavor was subtle and delicious. I hope they make these more often (from their twitter stream it sounds like a new thing they did this weekend.)
