Pie Shop – Buckhead

Owner Mims Bledsoe began working out of a commercial kitchen in Decatur slinging from-scratch pies online. Well, those pies seem to have paid off, because Bledsoe just opened her own brick-and-mortar shop in the heart of Buckhead this week. While the most exciting part of this may seem like it would be that the masses can pop in to pick up a Caramel Banana Tassies w/ Pecan shortbread crust, Georgia Peach Pie, or Watermelon Chiffon Pie whenever they want, it gets better: Bledsoe plans to stay open until 2 a.m. on the weekends.

Drunken blueberry rhubarb pie? Yes please.

3210 Roswell Rd. Ste. E (around back), Buckhead. 404-841-4512, www.the-pie-shop.com.

Morelli’s opens new location in Edgewood

As Jenny reported a few weeks back, Morelli’s Gourmet Ice Cream & Desserts, whose original Moreland Ave. location is little more than an ice cream stand with a walk-up window, has had a second location th in the Edgewood shopping district in the works. After a few delays, grand opening takes place this weekend, starting Saturday, June 18th, and will still feature free ice cream from noon-2 p.m.

The new 1500 sq ft. Morelli’s will still scoop up helpings of original flavors like Gin & Tonic sorbet, Maple Bacon Brittle, and Chocolate Bourbon, but now diners can enjoy their cones while sitting on a giant ice-cream-sandwich benches indoors.

Noon-10 p.m. daily. 1220 Carolina St., Atlanta. 404-584-2500, www.morellisicecream.com.

I love Morelli’s, some of the best and most creative flavors around. The olive oil & rosemary is amazing, as well as the lavender. MMMMM.

Morelli’s does not even make their own ice cream. They buy the base and just add flavor. It is not artisan ice cream.
