The Good Pie Company (Davie)

* The Good Pie Company, 5665 South Uiversity Drive, Davie, Florida 33328, (954) 562-4760.
Let me start by saying that–Jeff Eats is flying blind here…
Yesterday, I heard about a “start-up” retail/wholesale business-The Good Pie Company that “apparently” bakes amazing sweet and savory pies. So you “know”–sweet would be like- apple, pumpkin etc., savory would be chicken pot pie, zucchini etc. (so now you guys can be bakers).
Following-up on a friend’s call-about incredible apple, boston cream and chicken pot pies—Jeff Eats did some GOOGLING, BINGING, YAHOOING–and came-up with an interesting “picture” about a 50ish married couple who started The Good Pie Company after driving round trip–Florida to California studying/tasting all kinds of pies along the way. If I got this right, this Good Pie deal- is their first pro-outing in the bakery business. The joint which opened on November 5, 2013 is basically a “working-kitchen” located in a Davie strip center. When you walk in, there are no retail counters/displays–you are in a kitchen. From what I gather, the space formerly housed a pizza joint-and has enough room to allow a retail outlet to be built-out.
At this stage of this story–check Good Pie’s website http://www.thegoodpiecompany.net for products/and other stuff.
As I mentioned 23 seconds ago-most of the info-I have on The Good Pie Company came from the “internets” (you do know that Jeff Eats is a computer illiterate)… there are a number of stories on the company and a really cool YouTube Video about the Florida-California sojourn.
Now, nothing for nothing, Jeff Eats has no personal knowledge of what “these” pies taste like or what the bakery/store really looks like. What I got, is a gut feeling that owners Marti and Frank Reich–in addition to making delicious pies, may have a business that if “backed” by the right folks-could be HUGE.
By the way, on January 25, 2014 The Good Pie Company is going to have its official “Grand Opening.”
Jeff Eats is definitely going to- personally check this joint out…
We’ll talk about this one-again, real soon!

Of all the fare, dessert is not a course to be missed here: the bakery turns out some sinfully delicious cakes, tortes, cookies, cheesecakes, and — of course — pie. The eponymous Storkberry pie created by pastry chef Jerry Pond is a house blend of blueberries, raspberries, cherries, and strawberries cradled in a sinfully rich oatmeal crust.

Grampa’s Bakery & Restaurant (Dania Beach)

***** Grampa’s Bakery & Restaurant, 17 Southwest 1st Street, Dania Beach, Florida 33004, (954) 923-2163.
Here’s another one of Jeff Eats’ favorite “out of sight, out of mind” joints…Grampa’s Bakery & Restaurant in Dania Beach.
Terrific “diner” food…terrific bakery.
I first told you guys about Grampa’s way- back on July 25, 2008…hadn’t really thought about the joint- until this past Thanksgiving when friends brought over Grampa’s apple, blueberry and cherry pies for the holiday. DELICIOUS!!
Nothing for nothing, Grampa’s has been around since 1957 (for you mathematicians out there, that’s 57 years)-so I’m thinking that it must be doing something right.
Check grampasbakery.com for menu/info.

***** Grampa’s Bakery & Restaurant, 17 SW. 1st Street, Dania Beach, Florida 33004 (954) 923-2163.
Grampa’s has been around something like 50+ years. It is basically a local diner with a bakeshop attached. It has the requisite counter and booth seating…and it still looks like it did when it first opened.
Grampa’s is open Monday 6:30am-3pm…Tuesday-Saturday 6:30am-9pm…Sunday 8am-4pm.
Grampa’s is a terrific place for a “diner” breakfast, lunch and dinner…not to mention the incredible baked goods that are made in house.
Absolutely nothing fancy here…these old nostalgic diner-joints are right-up there with my favorite places to eat.
Upper Crust Bakery in lake Worth makes delicious pies. Not the best help, but the pies are worth the nastiness.
Dolly’s in Bonita Springs makes great pies.
