Lisa Yelagin and Anne Gerr met in the summer of 2018 quite by chance, in the shared commercial kitchen at Common Space in historic downtown Easton, PA. Lisa had a lovely little cafe in the front selling traditional Australian style savory pies, sides, baked goods, and drinks, while Anne was getting back into the culinary world in a month-long pop-up restaurant with a Mediterranean lean, called Tart. 

They joined forces and with the support of many friends and family opened Easton’s own, and only, pie shop, Pie+Tart, at 444 Northampton in October of that same year. Many, MANY, pies, tarts, turnovers,  Wellingtons, and quiches followed. A year went by, then some more months,  and there was a PLOT TWIST.

The Pandemic changed so many things, and gave us the wonderful and unexpected opportunity to join the amazing folks at the Easton Farmer's Market.  We LOVED being down by the river on Saturday mornings, with the swooping flocks of birds over the water, the cheerful chalk art of the dedicated volunteers, and the throngs of hungry customers!

We were happy marketeers for three more years, but decided to return our focus to the shop in order to keep our spirits, energy, and quality high.   Lisa re-designed the shop space once again, making room for customers - admittedly, not many at a time, but still! We added a self serve freezer, soups, and a wildly popular Friday Pie-day Lunch Special. 

Our goal, after 5+ years of finding our groove, is to keep our little pie world sustainable, growing only in such a way that maintains and nourishes all the things that are important to us: our customers, our families, and our pies.

What we do may be relatively simple, but it is not easy.  It is absolutely a labor of love, of conviction, and comes from a desire to add something real to our, and everyone’s, day.

We look forward every morning to making every customer’s day more delicious, more fun, and a bit easier.

See you at The Pie Hole!
Lisa and Anne
