If you want to meet a couple who is as sweet as the pies they bake, then Lauren and Cody Bolden of Pie Bar are waiting to make your acquaintance.
Before they had a brick-and-mortar bakery on Main Street, I met the pair at Woodstock’s Art and Wine Festival and then again at the Woodstock Farmers Market. I knew as soon as I tasted their Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie that they’d be famous in these parts someday and I’d be able to say “I’d knew them when…”
Now that day has finally come, and they’re often selling out as quickly as they can bake. You can now stop by or call to find out what slices or whole pies are available for the day. They use local ingredients as much as possible, so they change their menus seasonally based on the availability of fresh produce. They also offer a mean cup of coffee supplied by Marietta’s phenomenal Cool Beans Coffee Roasters.
