What’s in a name? At this cosy pie shop, it’s a family's pie-making legacy. Owner Pat Creaman is the son of Terry Cremean, the founder of Boscastle Pastries. Terry sold his well-loved Melbourne business in 2018, and in 2021 Pat put on a charity pie sale. It was such a hit that Pat went on to open Pieman’s Son two years later – just five minutes from where he grew up.
The hefty pies at this hotspot – which come in single and family sizes – offer a range of flavours: classic beef, Thai chicken, Moroccan lamb, and beef ragu. One of the main vegetarian pies is inspired by the fillings of a spanakopita: that piece uses veggies – garlic, onion, silverbeet – as well as herbs, including dill and parsley. Other mainstays include; pork and fennel sausage rolls and big hunks of vanilla slice.
There’s also about a half-dozen cakes available by the slice which can be enjoyed with coffee – beans come from St Remio. Pieman’s Son’s ready-made meals, which include everything from pasta sauces to lasagnes and meatballs, are also steady sellers. If you’ve got a kid’s – or a fun adult – party coming up, then be sure to grab a dozen party pies from the freezer.
