This famously all-veg café has nailed all the earthy grunt, savoury comfort and hearty warmth associated with a beef pie, but with the aid of mushrooms and lentils instead. It tastes quite similar to a ragu, and if you partake in dairy products, getting the ones spiked with cheddar cheese is not a bad call at all. Either way, the spiced house-made tomato sauce adds a sweet pick-me-up that completes this finely balanced offering.
There are a lot of delicious things that come wrapped in pastry that are not on this list: pasties, quiche, pot pies, sweet pies. Not because they are not delicious, but because what we are talking about here is your classic European pie – a pastry shell fully encompassing a savoury, hot filling, designed to be eaten on the go and line your ribs during the colder months – although we have nothing against a good pie even when the sun's blazing.
Sydney loves a hot pocket, and sometimes a Four’n’Twenty at the footy is all you need, but when you’re craving the highest calibre of pie, these are the best of the best. Hard palates were burned and clean shirts sauced to bring you this tried and tested list of the top pies in Sydney.
