Pie Perfection: 10 Best Auckland Pie Spots

Pie Perfection 10 Best Auckland Pie Spots

Whoever said finding the best pie shops in Auckland was easy clearly hasn’t tasted perfection! It’s like trying to pick your favorite child — nearly impossible, but oh-so-satisfying. 

As proud Kiwis, our love affair with pies goes way back, probably even before Instagram made foodie trends cool. Even Andre Tabar, our resident food historian, dug up some juicy history, tracing the earliest meat pie mention to a cheeky newspaper ad in 1863.

But enough about history — we’ve scoured every nook and cranny to bring you the crème de la crème of pie spots in Auckland. So, grab your fork and get ready to indulge in some serious pie decadence!

Levain Artisan Bakery’s pie cabinet is like stumbling upon a pot of gold, but instead of coins, you’re met with flaky, buttery pies that’ll make you do a little ditty in your head. 

These pies aren’t your ordinary pies. Oh no, they’re on a whole new level!

Chunky beef cheeks nestled in a buttery crust, spicy jalapeños, and sharp cheddar give you a kick — sound good yet? Wait, there’s more: meatballs so juicy, they practically burst with flavor. Foodgasmic!

And hold onto your hats because they even have a pie topped with potatoes and smoked kahawai. But wait, — rumor has it they’ve whipped up an oyster-filled pie too. Can you even handle the audacity?!

So go ahead, listen to that angelic voice in your head, and indulge in one (or five) of Levain’s pies. Just don’t blame us when you can’t resist coming back for more!

Pro Tip:
They cater to all you plant-based pals out there too. From jackfruit Thai curry to banana blossom and mushroom jungle curry, they’ve got vegan options that’ll make you question why you ever doubted plant-based eating.

Their Samona gem palusami pie is like a creamy flavor explosion in your mouth, blending corned beef, coconut, and taro leaves into one irresistible bite.
