What to Expect From Capitol Hill’s Newest Sweets Shop

Of course there’ll be pie at High 5 Pie. But what kinds?

The Trace Lofts on Capitol Hill: future home of High 5 Pie’s first storefront.

When I got in touch with Dani Cone about her forthcoming cookbook Cutie Pies, she also shared some intel on her High 5 Pie storefront, which is going in the Trace Lofts on 12th Avenue (home to Barrio, Tavern Law). Cone says:

She’s keeping her fingers crossed for an open later this month; if not then, “very early January.” Cone is stocking all sorts of the crusted pastry—muffin pies, petite pies, nine-inch pies, pie lollipops—and what Cone calls breakfast Flipsides, similar to hand pies or pasties. Cone also will intro several gluten-free and vegan options, plus “classic favorites as well as some new and inventive flavors,” both sweet and savory. Fuel Coffee, too.

“I honestly can’t tell you how excited I am to be opening this shop in my old neighborhood, too. I spent many years living and working in the heart of the Pike/Pine and am thrilled to be working there again.”

There you have it.
