’Tis the season for pumpkin pie, pecan pie, li hing apple pie, rye pie and Snuggy Bear. Wait, what?


We’re not telling you to give up the traditional, just to make some extra room on your Thanksgiving table for these:



The pies:

This year’s pies were created by Harley Tunac (who’s leaving soon to start The Local General Store): a locally sourced pumpkin pie with pumpkin seed cookie butter, ganache and coconut granola, a Honeycrisp apple pie with Lā‘ie vanilla, and a Mānoa dark chocolate with lapsang souchong, orange blossom and sesame ($40 each).


How to order:

Orders are taken via Tock on Breadshops’s website and can be picked up on Nov. 26, 27 and 28.
