Piece of heaven on Phinney – A La Mode Pies

Posted: May 6th, 2012 by Brad

On my way to find the usual breakfast sandwich bite on Phinney Ridge, I noticed an a-board simply proclaiming one thing, quiche. It was for Al La Mode, a very small pie cafe on the corner of Phinney Avenue N and N 59th Street. I’ve probably driven by this quaint storefront dozens of times as [...]
