In the bakery

All-American pies

Looking for the perfect dessert to cap off your Independence Day celebration? For just $10, enjoy a festive red, white and blue trio of our PCC Bakery’s delicious 5-inch pies on the Fourth — or any time this month.

Our red is a savory Strawberry Rhubarb; the white, a scrumptious Apple Crumb, and our blue Mixed Berry is a medley of strawberries and perfectly tart-sweet LaPierre Farms organic blueberries. All pie shells are made with organic flour and organic palm oil shortening, the fruit is sweetened with fruit juice, and the pies are topped with a vegan streusel topping, sweetened with just a touch of sugar.


In the deli

Cold brewed coffee

Keep your cool this summer by enjoying a refreshing cold brew coffee over ice from our PCC Deli, or make your toddy coffee at home with a Toddy Cold Brew System. Our deli uses a coarse grind of Tony’s French Roast coffee that is soaked for 12 to 15 hours in cold water, creating a bold, smooth coffee concentrate.

This method extracts the rich flavor while leaving behind any bitterness, making it 67 percent less acidic than traditional brews. For home brewing, pick up a Toddy brewer and some packaged Fidalgo Bay Toddy grind. Brewer includes a glass decanter, reusable filters, rubber stopper, instructions and recipes. (Cold brew coffee is not available in the deli at Seward Park.)
