Shoofly first opened its doors in the dark days before specialty pie shops began serving slices in neighborhoods throughout the city. Now, its days are numbered. The West Seattle bakery will permanently close next month. The sad new broke earlier today on Facebook:
Friends of Shoofly – After 7 wonderful years bringing pie to wonderful West Seattle, Zak and I have decided to pursue other life interests (I dunno, maybe write a cookbook?! ;)). Our last day at our retail store will be Sunday August 17th. It is bittersweet, but we are also looking forward to the next chapter of our lives.
Kimmy Hsieh Tomlinson and her husband Zak opened Shoofly's retail location in the summer of 2007.
