Tilly’s Pies

Enhancing people’s lives one slice at a time.

Tilly’s Pies returning soon

Tilly’s will have a limited number of pies available the week of December 5th.  Watch fro Winter hours beginning the week of December 10.

Pies are available by the slice or the whole pie.  All of our pies are handmade and baked in our pie kitchen.  We also take orders for pies to be made in advance.  Drop us a note at admin@theidealmarket.com and we’ll send you a confirmation and have it ready for you.

Online ordering coming soon.

We’ve had a great first 6 months!

We are proud to say we can measure our first six month pie count in the thousands not dozens.  So far we are very happy with the quality of our pies and the volume of our sales.

We know some of you would like longer hours, online ordering and barista style coffee.  Be patient.  The Rivers Eatery was built to serve 40 customers a day and now we average 40 customers per hour.  Tilly’s is on that same path.  We have always said, “Don’t put your foot on the gas til you know where you are going.”  We are getting a pretty good idea of where we are headed.  We believe our pie volume will double next year and continue for years to come.  But the pie business is a tricky one.  There is a reason why good pie shops are few and far between.  We’ve studied pie businesses all over the country and we know what makes them successful.  Quality is a given, but even quality pie shops fail all the time.  Keep the faith that we will run a business that is efficient and successful so that we can continue to serve the community and provide good jobs for our staff for a long time.

We bake the following pies on a regular basis and can bake one or more especially for you in most cases with 2 days notice:  Banana Creme, Coconut Creme, Key Lime, Chocolate Walnut Stout, Apple Strudel, Blueberry Strudel, Cherry, Peach Berry, Strawberry, 3 Berry, Apple Raspberry.   Our whole price pie is $24.  We know a little about business and we assure you this is price represents a great value for a handmade pie with “real” ingredients.   Celebrate one of life’s greatest pleasures prepared – as our staff says, “with love.”

Tilly’s has coffee and ice cream!

We have coffee by the bag or by the cup.  Stop by for a cup of Tilly’s Blend from Steve and Trudi’s favorite coffee shop in their hometown of Topeka KS.

Of course we have ice cream with your pie, but also by the scoop or in a cone.

Who is Tilly?

Tilly is the nickname of our good friend, philosopher and world-champion cyclist Steve Tilford.  You can learn about Steve’s life by simply Googleing his name.  In addition to being a great athlete and beautiful human, Steve loved people, he loved Cable WI and he loved pie.

Steve’s amazing partner Trudi Rebsamen has now moved to Cable and is helping us run the shop and can be found baking pies and behind the counter most days serving up slices, coffee and kindness.

Tilly’s is located in the little carriage house (formerly a burned out garage) behind the Rivers Eatery in a space we call the Ideal Market Commons.

I’m not sure who or what created this world but I feel super lucky just to be a part of it.”  Steve Tilford – Some time after hours.
