Elijah Pies Tanjong Pagar Cafe – I Only Have Pies For You

Elijah Pies Tanjong Pagar Plaza is the second outlet of this highly specialised shop/cafe that only sells pies. Its cute cottage-like appearance stands out among the shops in this busy part of Singapore.

Elijah Pies Love Story

The “Pie Story” (quoting from their website), sounds like a modern Singapore love story. Elijah was inspired to create his first Nutella Pie for his girlfriend to satisfy her sweet tooth. This led to the inception of Elijah Pies in 2014, with the Nutella Pie being the first flavour and is still their current bestseller. Since then, they have more original pie creations, including its signatures like Wild Berry Lavender, Raspberry Ripple and Speculoos Hojicha. Their main shop is at King George’s Avenue. Elijah Pies Tanjong Pagar is their second outlet.

The cute cafe selling only pies at Tanjong Pagar Plaza has an interior that looks more like a smart small apartment (such as those often featured on the Never Too Small Youtube channel) than a cafe. It even has a fake fireplace. With a small interior space, the seats are precious and hard to come by at peak hours.


Elijah Pies Cafe Menu

The Elijah Pies menu is very straightforward – there are only pies. They come in different sizes and flavours.

There are two types of pies: dessert and savoury. There is less variety in the savoury department, with only 5 versions on the cafe menu, each in a 4-inch size.

More choices are available for the dessert pies which are available in mini and regular sizes, as well as in slices. It seems that not all flavours are made for each day – only some are produced daily.

What We Ate – Savoury Pies

We chose two types each of savoury and sweet pies on our visit to Elijah Pies Tanjong Pagar cafe. Our choices for savoury were Scallop Chowder Pie and Black Truffle Mash Pie. The Scallop pie has a crusty exterior holding in a creamy interior with seared scallops.

    

The Mash Pie (pic below) is said to contain custard, parmesan cheese, portobello mushroom and hazelnuts, topped with mashed potato infused with black truffle. We found both savoury pies to be quite similar – heavy with creamy, mashed fillings. These were good as the “main course” for lunch, filling us up so that we could proceed to the dessert pies which were the highlights of the day.

Dessert Pies

Our choices of sweet pies were their signature Nutella Pie ($7.90 / slice) and Wild Berry Lavender Pie ($7.90 / slice).

It was easy to see why the Nutella pie launched the success of this pie shop. It had lots of chocolatey flavour, which was enhanced by the roasted hazelnuts and mild flavouring of the body of the pie. The wild berry lavender provided a nice contrast both visually and in tastes. This was a pretty piece of pie. The refreshing flavour of fruit and aroma of lavender was very different from the Nutella. It’s good to eat the lavender pie first.

In the past, we would have thought that almost $10 for a slice of pie was expensive. But things have inflated a lot these days. We have grown numb to the pain. It was a nice experience to eat pie and drink coffee in a nice Elijah Pies Tanjong Pagar cafe in the midst of the busy area near the Amara Hotel.
