Jaynelle St. Jean’s amazing seasonal pies now have a permanent home in the Jack London district, in a space shared with Nido, the farm-to-table Mexican restaurant. The pies are sold whole, by the slice, and in individual-size mini pies. St. Jean makes the thinnest, crispest all-butter crust we’ve ever had the pleasure to try, and, as far as we can tell, there isn’t a bad pie on the menu. If you aren’t sure what to get, any of the cream pies are a good bet — none better than the holiday-special chocolate peppermint cream: smooth, rich chocolate infused with a blast of mint, like a sophisticated Grasshopper milkshake. Meanwhile, coffee and savory (egg-based) breakfast pies are available Tuesday through Friday, from 8 to 10 a.m.
Payment Type: Cash, All Major Credit Cards
Upon request, advance orders can be picked up outside the listed hours (as long as Nido is open).
