Coffee fuss.

 

(excluding politics), Australians think the worst thing about America is the coffee. 


We think Vittoria organic coffee from Australia is the best coffee on earth.

Thats why we use it exclusively for all our hot and cold coffee drinks -

flat white, macchiato, espresso, cold brew and Aussie Iced Coffee

 

Trip Advisor rates us as #1 or #2 for coffee in Santa Monica.

 

Come in for a coffee - and see what all the fuss is about.

Wow. We friggin did it. This is pretty awesome. Thank you Bon Appetit and GRUB HUB. Read all about it

"In order to maximize Aussie Pie Kitchen’s flaky, meat-filled carb bombs, you’ll want to add a     “stack” to your order --  which basically means it’ll be layered with your choice of gravy, mashed potatoes, and more."

Trip Advisor ranks APK 1/583 Santa Monica Restaurants...

"Definitely worth a stop on your next visit to Santa Monica!"

"What Aussie Pie Kitchen has is truly special"

says Robert Penfold on the Australian Nine Network News Video Dec 2014   On National Australian TV the Nine network reported on the recent growth of pies availability in Los Angeles. From zero to 3 in 18 months. Nick talks about pie floaters and quality in this 4 minute video.

"It's Pie day. Every day."

-Via Vita Magazine

"Reinvented Aussie Meat Pies at the Aussie Pie Kitchen"

"The crust is perfectly flakey and buttery, the steak is soft...Get it with mashed potatoes and smothered in gravy!"

"I enjoyed their signature Flat White (invented in Australia) and it was perfectly creamy with a smooth texture from the steamed milk and a shot of espresso all melting together." 

Lisa Ng, This Beautiful Day

 

Santa Monica Mirror  

“We wanted to make delicious and gourmet pies, instead of the stock standard Aussie meat pie.”

"This pie took 3 days to make, I think it's going to take 3 minutes to demolish. It's official - if you're in Santa Monica - you have to stop by Aussie Pie Kitchen."

"Completely reinvented, recreated, and rebuilt the pie from the crust down."

"The tender, well-spiced chunks of meat worked quite well alongside the pot pie-esque crust and hearty base of potato."   -KevinEats

An HONEST (Company) YELP REVIEW on our catering... We got a call at 1030 am on Monday 3/16/15, we delivered the food (80 breakfast pies) at 7:50 am on Tuesday and here's what happened....

I could not say better things about Aussie Pie Kitchen! We had them cater a large company breakfast and they made it nothing but EASY. Nick, the owner, was so personable and was truly a pleasure to work with. They were prompt with the early delivery time (which was much appreciated). The food was TO DIE FOR! It was a huge hit in the office - everyone was so happy with the brekkie pies! Nick and Geri were also thoughtful enough to bring us a lamington cake on the house for us to try! If you are looking for a reliable and delicious option to cater your event or just want a yummy meal I fully recommend APK.
