“Life’s short. Eat more pie!” (Texas Pie Company in Kyle)

The Texas Pie Company in Kyle (south of Austin) has a slice of pie just above its door. On the sign is the Texas Pie Company slogan: “Life’s short. Eat more pie!”


The Texas Pie Company
Life’s short, eat more pie!
The Texas Pie Company bakes fresh, “homemade” Pies, casseroles, and other baked goods.  Our chef has been baking since opening her first bakery in 1986.  Texas Pie Company pies come from our Grandmother’s cherished recipes that have been handed down for generations in our Texas family.  True southern comfort food. 

We are famous for our handmade Pies and casseroles, “Comfort Food”.  At our restaurant in Kyle, TX, easily recognized by the pie sign, we serve lunch all day in our dining room.  We also provide full service catering for any event serving 10 to 400 or more guests.

8. “Life’s Short. Eat More Pie.”
We agree with Julie Albertson and Spencer Thomas of The Texas Pie Company in Kyle. Julie bakes 18 flavors from her grandmother’s recipes, including strawberry-peach and blackberry. Many customers enjoy a lunch of comfort foods such as King Ranch Chicken Casserole. Others pop in for pies and casseroles to go. Look for the cafe’s sign with the big slice of cherry pie at 202 West Center Street. To mail-order a pie, call [512] 268-5885.
