The Estes Park Pie Shop & Bakery (aka You Need Pie) is both a diner and a bakery.
The diner serves up breakfast, lunch, and dinner (in the summer). There’s a lot of comfort food on the menu, from pancakes and scrambled eggs for breakfast, to sandwiches, meatloaf, and chicken pot pie for lunch and dinner.
The bakery side of the operation is known for its pies (when you have a large truck outside your store with the words “YOU NEED PIE!” emblazoned on it, this tends to happen). In addition to pies, they do muffins, scones, brownies, cookies, and cakes–including wedding cakes. They can also do catering for your event.
We tend to like the food here better than we do the baked goods, BUT, it should be pointed out that we are bakery snobs, and only like baked goods made from butter, and not vegetable shortening. If you are not a butter snob, then we’re pretty sure you’ll find the baked goods to your liking.
If you are intending to purchase a whole pie, or other specific baked good, we highly recommend that you call ahead to make sure they have what you need.
