During the business closures they have been running curb-side delivery of frozen pies. I was looking for something new and am very glad I placed an order to try them out. The pies were great and I'm looking forward to ordering some more.

wonderful savory and sweet little pastries

Love these pies and the fact that this is a family owned and run business! I wish I could get there more often.

Ithaca Staple! Amazing

June Luu

Overrated. Nothing special or worth to go there just for the small bite of pie. Staff was not really knowledgeable about their products, too.

Super delicious pies! The pastry is flaky, tender, and incredibly buttery. Some of the best food in Ithaca, period. They usually have a diversity of savory pies and one or two sweet - all worth a try. Also in a super cute area with lots of other treats! And the owners are really kind and friendly.

These are some of the best savory pastries I've ever had! Seriously, this is such an incredible shop. What a treasure for Ithaca to have!

Delicious pies, went mid-afternoon and they had run out of quite a few, but we managed to get some hot out of the oven. We were disappointed there were only savoury pies there. Very small store but plenty of outdoor seating! A lot of options for vegan/gluten free, etc.

Great owners and amazing hand made pies. We ordered 2 sausage rolls and 2 irish mutton the night before (to ensure they had them) and collected just after noon today. They were freshly baked and oh so full of amazing flavors, awesome pastry and fillings. Please support this amazing little start up bakery.

We are dinky di Aussies and these hand pies are as good as any we’ve ever had down under. Highly recommend the whole range. The pastry is flaky and the ingredients for the filling are complex and nuanced

Amazing 👌 and grab a beer next door while you're there.

The pies here are amazing little bits for a cheap price - currently $4 apiece. Great spot when the weather's room to split a few snacks with a friend and grab some coffee, beer, or ice cream from the shops next door. Like the other Press Bat Alley stores, there isn't inside seating, but there is outside seating on the shared patio. Lots of different pies to try, and I've loved everything I've had from them. Very tasty!

Delicious selection of hand pies! We tried a few. We will definitely be back!

Gluten free food items are often not so yummy, but your gluten free Hand Pie was delicious! And the customer service was off the charts. I'm coming back!

Had these at IC’s Politics Department’s reception last night and, oh my lanta, these hand pies were amazing!!!! I’m not a fan of pie crust (or some types of hand pies, unless they’re empanadas), but I would honestly eat this pie crust straight.
