NEW OPENINGS AND RETURNS
A La Mode Pies
The Seattle pie shop with locations in Phinney Ridge and West Seattle opened its third location in the former Parfait Ice Cream space in Ballard on Wednesday. The shop will close its Phinney Ridge location in 2023 due to its building becoming low-income housing—the business has been invited to return to the corner space after the new building is completed, so the new Ballard location will allow them to maintain a presence in North Seattle during construction. And now, they’ll also be able to focus more on the “a la mode” in their name: Thanks to the pasteurizer left behind by Parfait, the shop will be able to expand its ice cream line and make its own ice cream base from scratch with only six ingredients. Owner Chris Porter tells My Ballard he plans to add some new flavors to the business’s “PiesCream” line (which he likens to “Ben & Jerry’s but pie”), including Bourbon Butterscotch, Spiced Apple, Holiday Pumpkin, and Blue Hawaiian.
