BIZNOTE: A la Mode Pies now open in West Seattle, after ribbon-cutting


Sisters Alynn and Kahlena were waiting for A la Mode Pies to open the doors of its West Seattle expansion location first thing this morning. Just one bit of business before the serving could begin – the ceremonial ribbon-cutting!


From left, that’s West Seattle Chamber of Commerce CEO Lynn Dennis, general manager Frank
Krhounek, pastry chef Ashleigh Totin, and ALMP’s “Pie Guy”/founder/etc. Chris Porter. Ribbon cut, it was on to the pie for the aforementioned first customers:

    Welcome to West Seattle! I’m looking forward to trying the pies, it’s nice to have options beyond cupcakes and ice cream in the area. Unless you can bake all three into one dessert.

    This is Alynn & Kahlena’s mom – I’m usually more of a cake person myself, but I will say this from the 1 bite each girl allowed me – that pie is A-MAZING!! The whole thing was absolutely delicious. I may become a pie convert. :) We will be back!!

      Hi, Alicia! Thanks for the note. Fixing Alynn’s first name, sorry.

    Very excited to stop by! We’ve been desperately in need of pies after Shoofly closed two years ago.

    OMG, I’m running, not walking!

    WSB – Any chance you can find out if they use an egg wash on their pies or have vegan offerings? The egg allergic would love to know! I’ve asked them several times on social media but no reply. Thanks!

      If you go to their site, you will see that inform you to call the manager directly concerning food allergens.

    Sampled 3 pies yesterday w friends- a savory, a fruit and a cream. Loved the pulled pork hand pie, marrionberry and key lime were really tasty too! Can’t wait to try coconut cream or butterscotch. Yum. Owner is super personable, made for a lovely visit.

Sorry, comment time is over.
