Hey Everybody! Where has the time gone? Chanukah starts Tuesday night, the Winter Solstice is Sunday and Christmas is NEXT THURSDAY. While we don’t really have a deadline to order Chanukah or Solstice pies, we do get slammed for Christmas, so just like Thanksgiving, you must get your order in by the end of the day this Sunday December 21st to pick up Wednesday December 24th before 5pm. You can place your order online, on the phone or in the store. Online orders are best for us as they keep the phone and our staff from getting tied up as we get ready for this busy time. If you need to call it in, our number is 707-766-6743 (7mmm-PIE).

Meanwhile we continue to get much needed rain but don’t let that scare you away from coming downtown. While you are doing your holiday shopping, stop in and warm up with some nice Mushroom Barley Soup and a hot pie with some hot mulled apple cider, hot tea, hot chocolate or hot coffee. Don’t want to leave Petaluma Pie? Do your holiday shopping inside our store! We have fancy chocolate, candles, t-shirts, coffee cups, jewelry, Petaluma Pie gift cards and more! We are hosting a COTS Giving Tree in our shop as well. The tree is decorated with ornaments showing specific gift requests from COTS clients who need a little extra help this holiday season. Choose one and donate a gift.

RAIN!If you haven’t noticed yet, it is raining a lot. We are so happy our local farms will finally get some much needed water. As you all know we will be needing many more days and nights like this in order to get out of the drought. But while we celebrate the rain, we understand that you might want to stay inside where it is warm and cozy. But you know what else is warm and cozy? PIE! We have a great selection of hot savory pies for you to eat. We also made you some nice hot vegetarian soup, we have hot chocolate, hot tea, hot coffee and hot mulled apple cider! So come on down and warm yourself up at Petaluma Pie!

Pie of the day is CAKE!

That’s right, folks, the pressure has been too much for us. Everyone always asking if we have cake, when we are clearly a pie shop. We have finally broken down and made  the cake people have been clamoring for… So come in out of the rain and get a nice hot cup of coffee, tea, hot chocolate or cider and a steaming hot slice of cake!

Our newest pie is cake!

In fact, we are soon going to be replacing all of our pies with cakes. We have a whole line of sweet and savory cakes in the works.

Don’t be an April Fool! Eat pie instead of cake – EVERY DAY!

Looks Like Rain

Thankfully we have been getting more rain and it looks like we will have more coming this week! If you find it to be chilly and dreary, warm up with pie and soup, hot chocolate, tea, coffee and more!chicken pot pie with salad

Happy Birthday to Leonard Nimoy and more

In our continuing mission to celebrate Pi Month (3-14) which occurs only once every 100 years, we celebrate the birthday of Leonard Nimoy who turns 83 today. Please forgive us for missing William Shatner‘s birthday. He turned 83 on the 22nd. Enjoy this clip from Star Trek, where they distract the computer by having it calculate pi.

And Diana Ross turns 70 today. Hear her singing “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)” with the Supremes.

Speaking of the Supremes, it is also the birthday of former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. Look, there is a Topps trading card of her as part of the American Pie series. She is 84 today.

We hope you are enjoying the rain. It is a good day to have some pie. We have asparagus soup!


Signs of spring…

It is another beautiful sunny day in Petaluma, but fortunately, rain is coming this week. Out in the pie garden there are signs of spring stirring. Asparagus is just poking it’s head out and rhubarb is waking up also. March is just around the corner, bringing with it the pies of March!

Today, of course, pie is what is for lunch, dinner afternoon snack or dessert.

When it rains it pours!

rainy day chickenThankfully it is still raining. “They” say we could get 8 inches of rain this weekend and more is coming this week! We hope you are safe out there on the roads and not getting flash flooded. If you need to warm up, come in for some hot savory pies and minestrone soup and maybe a hot chocolate or coffee or tea and watch the rain come down in Helen Putnam Plaza.
