So don’t mind if we loosen our belt in preparation for A la Mode Pie’s new cafe, opening Thursday in Phinney Ridge.
Owner Chris Porter’s once-delivery-only company has put down roots in the former (and legendary) Dolly’s Dollhouse space, where neighborhood folks with a hankering can now find sustenance on someone else’s stoop.
Order a slice of apple and ginger pear along with a Caffe Umbria espresso at the reclaimed orchard timber counter or hunker down at one of the quaint cafe’s two tables to enjoy Bluebird vanilla ice cream and some bourbon butterscotch pie.
For those who’d rather dash than dine, pies are available for pickup. And, of course, delivery is still on the menu.
A la Mode Pies, 5821 Phinney Avenue North (206-383-3796 or alamodeseattle.com).
