The Proper Pie Company is located on Highway 27, just 1.25 miles south of the I-4, a hidden gem to both tourists and residents. As the name suggests, this English style bakery whips up over 200 freshly baked pies a day.
With over twenty different flavors, from the traditional to the eccentric, there is a treat in store for every member of the family. Customary English favorites such as Steak and Guinness, Cornish pasties, and Steak and Kidney fill the shelves of the deli. They are accompanied by some more unusual, yet equally mouth-watering varieties like Chicken Curry, Shepherd’s Pie in a Pie, Chicken Cordon Bleu, and Beef Stroganoff, just to name a few. All of the pies can be left in the fridge for 4 to 5 days, and they all freeze well.
Other British favorites to be found in the shop are Banger Rolls (a mild pork sausage wrapped in pastry), Sausage Rolls (a home-made mix of sausage meat, onions and herbs wrapped in pastry), and Scotch Eggs. Additionally, The Proper Pie Company sells a large variety of hard to find British frozen goods. Both the English style sausages and back bacon are two of the bestselling items in the shop.
In addition to those, black pudding, white pudding, kipper and haddock fillets and English white bread are also available. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you won’t be disappointed by visiting the Proper Pie. The shelves of the store are crammed with a huge variety of British sweets, with everything from Bounty to Yorkie to Refreshers. If you’re more of a savory person, there’s good news for you too. The Proper Pie offers an assortment of crisps, such as Walkers, Monster Munch, Hula Hoops, Twiglets and Quavers.
The shelves of the shop aren’t just filled with sweets and crisps though; they are chock-full of other English favorites. Items such as curry pastes, Shreddies, Pot Noodles, pickled onions, marmalade, baked beans and salmon spread will make you feel like you’re standing in the middle of a Tesco, not a bakery in Orlando.
During holiday seasons, such as Christmas and Easter, the Proper Pie provides the favorites that are often unable to be found. At Christmas time, mince pies, Christmas cake and selection boxes cram the shelves. Around Easter, chocolate Easter eggs are abundant, and the smell of Hot Cross Buns fills the air. The Proper Pie Company truly is a home away from home for all of your holiday cravings; be sure to make a stop there, taste one of their delicious pies and do a bit of shopping.
