In the spring, Adam Panayiotou and Lauren Duxbury opened Panbury’s Double Crust Pies in the Sweet Auburn Curb Market. Inspired by the offerings at pie shops in South Africa, where Duxbury grew up, the menu features an array of savory pies, plus small bites, sides and a few seasonal fruit pies.
In 2014 three South Africans opened Panbury’s, a unique gourmet pie shop and new high quality fast food concept in America. Their goal was to create delicious, wholesome pies using traditional cooking techniques, fresh, healthy ingredients and international flair! Panbury’s is bringing the tradition of the hand pie to America by recreating South African, British and Australian favorites in a new style. Potpies, meat pies, patties, pasties and cuisines from around the world inspire Panbury’s flavorful, heaping-full hand-pies.
