Scrumptious. The delicate little pies, known as "cutie pies," may take center stage (try the banoffee, it's delicious), but the variety of sandwiches are not to be missed come lunchtime. Our favorite is the Fried Chix, a fried chicken breast topped with coleslaw, tomato, tabasco mayo — all on an onion focaccia roll. With a bit of heat and crunch in every bite, it's a delectable sandwich. Pair that with a salted caramel or blueberry cutie pie, and you have a mildly decadent and totally delicious meal.
