South Buffalo’s hidden gem: English Pork Pie Co. - VIDEO
South Buffalo might be known for its Irish influence, but there's actually a little piece of England tucked away on South Park Avenue.
The English Pork Pie Co., 1176 South Park Ave., offers traditional British meat pies, sausage rolls, Cornish pasties, Scotch eggs and more. Though much of their business revolves around shipping the culinary treats to other parts of the country, owners Vicky and Damian Parker recently introduced a diner setting where customers can eat in.
The Parkers announce daily specials on their Facebook page for anyone interested in a particular item. Vicky Parker said that they do occasionally take requests from Facebook fans, too.
Located in a formerly vacant factory, many locals don't realize that an award-winning business now resides in the highly trafficked area of South Buffalo -- not far from the intersection at South Park Avenue, Abbott Road and Bailey Avenue. The Parkers encourage anyone to stop in and buy a pie -- or a scone for breakfast.
The English Pork Pie company is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Wednesday; until 4 p.m. Thursday and Friday; and until 3 p.m. Saturday.
