Honey Pies to open on Bowman

Another Little Rock foodie startup is making the jump from food truck to brick and mortar storefront: gourmet pie maker Honey Pies, which plans to open a cozy, 600-square-foot pie, ice cream and coffee shop at 315 N. Bowman Rd. in the next month or so.

Sharon Woodson, owner of Honey Pies, says the space is being renovated, with a target opening date sometime in late May or early June. "We're still waiting on some plumbing plans, and I'm not sure how long the work will take," she said. "Our goal is Memorial Day weekend."

The plan for opening day, Woodson said, is to offer drip coffee, pies by the slice, whole pies for walk-in purchase (any whole pie is $24), and ice cream from Little Rock's Loblolly Creamery. There will be a small dining area, and bottled beverages.

"The goal is to have a [ice cream] dipping counter eventually," she said. "But that's a plumbing project we're working on, so I don't know if that's going to be a day one event or a phase two." While Woodson is a one-woman show right now, she said her plan is to eventually bring in more help and expand Honey Pies into a full service bakery, ice cream parlor, restaurant and coffee shop.

"But that's a long term goal," she said. "Day one is: pie, ice cream, coffee." Currently, they're taking orders for Mother's Day pies, with pick up available at the future location at 315 N. Bowman.
