Pi day (aka 3/14... get it?) is not just for sweets. You can indulge in savory pies, too. These pies are full of rich and hearty ingredients encased in a buttery crust. So here’s to Pi Day. We’ve got a list of some of the best bets for an amazing savory pie to celebrate.

  • Australian Bakery Café – You wouldn’t think you’d find the cuisine of Australia in the Cobb County suburbs, but you’d be surprised that this little spot has been thriving for years on Marietta Square. They have savory pies made from scratch that have sumptuous fillings.

  • HAVEN has a savory Springer Mountain chicken pot pie with celery, mushrooms and carrots. Chef Stephen features this throughout the winter months, typically on Sundays.

  • HOBNOB – Located in Midtown, this watering hole is popular for lunch and a casual dinner. Their pot pie, available after 5 p.m., has smoked chicken, peas, potatoes and smoked bacon.

  • Meehan’s Public House – This is more than just your average pub. They have upscale food in a pretty fun atmosphere. You won’t be disappointed with the shepherd’s pie.

  • Panbury’s – Located downtown, Panbury’s is worth the stop in the Peachtree Center food court if you are nearby. Their savory pies have a delicious crust with quality cuts of both meat and chicken. I recommend the country chicken. Also find Panbury's in the Sweet Auburn Curb Market.

  • Paul’s Pot Pies – Also located on Marietta Square is Paul’s Pot Pies, featuring a variety of savory pies. Though they have the original chicken pot pie, you should branch out and try ones like the jambalaya, sloppy Joe, seafood chowder, or my favorite, Italian sausage. 

  • Ration & Dram – Just in time for spring, a vegetable pot pie with puff pastry crust is available.

  • Salt Factory – Their shepherd’s pie is made with lamb and comes in a cast iron skillet. It’s large enough to share, but so good you won’t want to.
