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

"Aussie Pie Kitchen opens in LA to bring Australian Street food to Angelinos"
"Shower up and head down Main Street for a lunch oddity known as an Australian pot pie.Chopped champion Chef Joe Youkhan opened the original Aussie Pie Kitchen here in Santa Monica putting a gourmet twist on an Australia street staple. "
"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."
“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.
