The Story:

I had just finished a great cubano sandwich from another cart in the lot when I had a craving for something sweet. The Honey Pot was calling my name with their slices of pie and other delights.

Mary Sheridan opened The Honey Pot last month after moving up from Bend where she had her own baking business. She wanted to bring her favorite recipes to Portland and after you try some, you’ll be glad she did. Having grown up baking, Mary won her first competition at the county fair at age 13. After some forays into liberal arts studies, she eventually became a classically trained pastry chef with a degree from the Culinary Institute of America. The cart, crafted out of a vintage Airstream Silver Streak, is a thing of beauty and harkens back to a childhood kitchen where one learns from their mother.

Pendleton pie from The Honey Pot

At The Honey Pot, you can get sweet and savory pies along with tarts, galettes and puff pastries. My sweet-tooth was throbbing on that sunny day, so I picked up a slice of the Pendleton. Dark chocolate and pecans are mixed with Pendleton Whiskey custard and baked with a chocolate shortbread crust. Did I mention there was chocolate in there? With fresh whip cream on the side, the slice was a decadent treat. A caramel hint from the whiskey came through and with the pecans created a brilliant combination.

The Honey Pot is the real thing and you should check it out. While I purchased a slice, you can also get whole pies and even just some fresh pie dough to make your own. Head on down to Good Food Here and let Mary know Food Carts Portland sent ya.

    Of the three savory pies I tried, all were not just okay, they were excellent! Moreover, service is lightening quick. The pecan pie was just okay. Nice lady runs the place.
