Magpie's holiday specials look awfully good

Oh, goddammit. Is it just us, or does Holly Ricciardi at Magpie (1622 South St.) have an uncanny sixth sense for what people want to binge on? Because her menu additions—like this month's peppermint bark pie, seen above—are starting to feel almost manipulative: a brownie pie? Laden with ganache and crushed candy canes? It would be better, for us, if we didn't have the option of just walking into a store with $30 in our pocket and buying an entire pie's worth of that.

So we have to recommend that you visit with friends whose presence will shame you into only buying a slice ($5), or order one for a holiday gathering with enough guests in attendance that everyone insists on slivering every sweet in sight.

Of course, if you go on the right weekend (follow the bakery on Twitter if you're the type who doesn't have to eat pie just because you see someone tweet about pie), you might also luck upon a mini version. Through December, they're featuring a rotating cast of seasonal miniature pies ($3.50) on weekends, including flavors like casserole-inspired sweet potato with toasted vanilla meringue or eggnog cream with crushed gingersnaps. Fans of persimmon, look out for the persimmon custard mini with candied pistachios. Just don't look for us, because we're trying our best to hold off on the all-out gluttony for another week or so.

New Cafe Items at Magpie

Though the weather outside is not even close to frightful, Magpie is prepping early for Jack Frost’s return. Using espresso from La Colombe, Magpie has crafted several hot drinks perfect for fighting off the frost.

The Pie Latte is made from La Colombe espresso, warm milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, topped with buttery caramel sauce and pink peppercorn. Other available lattes include the Pumpkin Spice Latte, Vanilla Latte, Orange Cardamom Latte, Peppermint Latte and Peppermint Mocha, all with syrups created in-house.

Since Magpie is extending their Friday and Saturday hours to 10 p.m., try their ultra-chocolaty hot chocolate with house-made vanilla bean marshmallows to avoid late night caffeine. Unless, of course, you’re into that.

The 12 oz. lattes sell for $4.50 while the hot chocolate costs $3.50.

When it comes to fall fruit pies, apple pie gets all the glory--unless you’re dining at Holly Ricciardi’s table. At Philadelphia’s new Magpie Artisan Pie Bakery & Boutique, Ricciardi puts pears on a pedestal in this crumble-topped dessert. Delicate Bartlett pears lend the filling a slightly floral note and pair perfectly with the candied ginger she tosses in. Whether you rely on prepared piecrust for ease or make your dough from scratch, this pear pie promises to impress your holiday guests in a way an old classic never could.

Time to Dine

By Magpie | Nov 6, 2012 | News | Press

What does a Mom do when she finds herself on the upper blocks of South Street, hungry, alone (so rare) and in search of a hot amazing meal prepared by someone other then her….I’ll tell you…Magpie. It was my luck that I wondered past and fell in love with the outside enough to stumble inside. So much for that “don’t judge a book by its cover” rule. Once I saw how cute and cozy the inside was I totally bagged my original plan of my working quickie lunch at the coffee shop up the street. Ahhh I am kind of lying once they told me that they put EVERYTHING in a pie….I bagged my original plan and pulled up a seat at the counter. Read More
