Pink Pie Opens Bake Shop in Wynwood. There’s a new place to dig into a freshly made pie in Wynwood. Miami’s Pink Pie has opened its first brick-and-mortar steps from Wynwood Walls. The concept, which launched in September 2016 at the Yellow Green Farmers Market, specializes in three-inch sweet and savory pies. There are more than a dozen permanent and rotating flavors, some filled with Oreo and Nutella, guava and cheese, key lime, or salted caramel and others topped with onion and duck confit. Right now, limited-edition favorites include tiramisu, caramel pretzel, and hot cocoa. Regardless of flavor, pies are the same price. Savory flavors cost $3.50 apiece, while sweet pies run $3.50 for one, $6 for two, $11 for four, $15 for six, $19 for eight, and $28 for a dozen. 170 NW 26th St., Miami; 954-744-0214; pinkpie.com. 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
