The other dessert shop in Downtown Woodstock is Pie Bar, owned by pie marker Lauren Bolden who you’ll usually find at the store working on the pies. They are a take-out only pie store with a daily rotating selection of pies, but they have a few seats and tables for you to enjoy your take-out pies.
For desserts, I typically don’t go for pies, but I had a deeper appreciation for them after trying the pies here.
The pies here aren’t overly sweet, and the crust is just amazing. Prices range from $3-4/slice and whole pies are at least $25.
Travelling Foodie Tip: Warm up the Salted Caramel Apple Streusel Pie and top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It’s SO GOOD!

They also have Chocolate Chess Pie. I learned that Chess Pies are traditional Southern style pies which use cornmeal and vinegar.
I enjoyed all three I tried, but my favorite is the Bourbon Pecan Pie. It had generous amounts of pecans and the right texture inside.
