Relocating from Mount Dessert Island to Portland’s Old Port, Mount Dessert Pie Company recently opened up shop just in time for Thanksgiving at 7 Exchange Street, the previous home to The Holy Donut. Owned & operated by sisters, Brit & Hannah Babcock have been making amazing desserts, including homemade pies & other baked goods, for 7 generations here in Maine. This year being the first year they have made them available to the public.
Their Strawberry Rhubarb pie, which is deliciously balanced between sweet & tangy, & their Wild Maine Blueberry Pie, dubbed the best “Best Blueberry Pie Ever”, have become their signature 9” homemade pies. Also offered in shop are their savory & sweet hand pies, including Egg, Ham, Gruyere, & Chocolate Ganache & Raspberry, & other baked goods such as cookies & cinnamon buns.
Mount Desserts Pie is open Wednesday-Saturday 8am-5pm & Sunday 9am-5pm. You can preorder pies online, which will be available the next day starting at noon.
