Lauretta Jean’s Introduces Happy Hour Pie Slices

Happy hour at Lauretta Jean’s just got a little bit happier. For the past year, our SE Division shop has offered happy hour deals on cocktails, house wine, and pints of beer.

In addition to our happy hour beverage specials, however, we are now offering happy hour pie slices! Every day from 5-7pm, all pie slices will be available for only $3.50 a slice! (Happy hour is only available at our shop on SE Division St.)

So, come one, come all! We’re pretty excited about our new happy hour pie slices (and you should be too!).

LJs bars

Here at Lauretta Jean’s, we make a a lot of delicious pies. We love pie. But, in addition to our wonderful selection of handmade pies, we also make a whole bunch of tasty baked goods: brownies, bars, cookies, and other treats.

Since we talk about pie (a lot), we thought it was time to shine a light on our lesser known baked goods, such as our Lemon Bars, Nanaimo Bars, and Sea Salt Brownies.

nanaimo

Take, for example, the Nanaimo Bar. The base of this bar is made with chocolate, coconut, almonds, and graham cracker crumbs. The center is a layer of cream filling, and the bar is topped with a layer of chocolate ganache. It’s creamy, decadent, and completely and totally delicious.

You can find these tasty treats at both our shops, as well as Water Avenue Coffee in southeast industrial and Kenilworth Coffee on Gladstone.

Rhubarb is Here.

Rhubarb | Lauretta Jean'sHere at Lauretta Jean’s, we get really excited for spring and all that this season brings. We love being at the farmer’s market, and stocking up on spring produce. We love spring greens, asparagus, raab, and sugar snap peas. But, most of all, we really love rhubarb.

Throughout the season, we’ll offer a number of different rhubarb pies and desserts. We’ll have Rhubarb Streusel Pies, Strawberry Rhubarb Pies, and Blueberry Rhubarb Pies. In addition, we’ll make Rhubarb Muffins, Rhubarb and Granola Parfaits, and whatever else strikes our fancy!

With rhubarb, the possibilities are endless (and delicious!), so be sure to stop into either one of our shops this month and check out the rhubarb selection!

cakeJoin us for a romantic, candle-lit evening of decadent pies, signature cocktails, and other indulgent treats such as Cherry Punch, Germain Chocolate Cake, Sweetheart Sugar Cookies, and Red Velvet Cupcakes. There’s also nothing unsexy about buying an entire Chocolate Pie -  taking it home and eating by yourself (while crying in bed while watching Meg Ryan movies) … we don’t judge. However you chose to celebrate, know that Lauretta Jean’s loves you! xoxo
