Elijah Pies Review: IG-Famous Bakery Opens Chio Cafe With Mac N’ Cheese Pie, Matcha Latte Pie And More

4th May 2023

Elijah Pies opens in Tanjong Pagar with famous pies and coffee


Since their inception in 2014, homegrown bakery Elijah Pies has established a strong online presence for their IG-worthy dessert pies. The team first started operating out of a central kitchen, then launched a takeaway kiosk and baking studio. Come 6 May 2023, they’re officially setting up shop in the heart of the CBD, in the form of a dine-in cafe!

Food at Elijah Pies


The menu is split into a few sections with a focus on pies, including outlet-exclusive ones.


With a whopping total of nine dessert pies to choose from, you might feel spoilt for choice. Definitely start with their best-selling Wild Berry Lavender Pie ($7.90++), the pretty one that’s made its rounds all over Instagram.


It’s clear why this flavour’s so popular. The berry and yoghurt layer was creamy and not too sweet, with a subtle tang to balance out everything. You also get a soft floral fragrance from the lavender that doesn’t overpower the other flavours. This was my favourite pie for the day, though I wished the crust was slightly crispier.


I’d also recommend having a go at the Matcha Latte Pie ($7.90++) if you’re big on tea-infused flavours. This tasted exactly as I expected, just like a glass of iced matcha latte but in dessert form.

Here the chocolate cookie crust was delightfully crispy, pairing well with the rich green tea custard. Little swirls of torched meringue added a touch of sweetness and visual effect—similar to the milk foam cap seen in the actual drink.


Then there’s their second signature, the Nutella Pie ($7.50), AKA the OG flavour that started it all. Many years back, owner Elijah got into the pie-making business when his girlfriend Limin was craving a slice of Nutella pie. After multiple rounds of experimenting, he created his first successful pie for her. Today, the couple are still the brains behind the brand!

Be warned, this hefty pie is full-on chocolate. It’s sinful but in the best way possible; you first get the intense dark chocolate filling, then the sweetness of the chocolate crust, followed by a pleasant nuttiness from the crunchy roasted hazelnuts. It’s best to share this indulgent treat if you don’t have a sweet tooth.


Those who prefer something savoury are in luck, as the lineup here is rather extensive. The all-new, outlet-exclusive Mac N’ Cheese Pie ($12.90++) was another unanimous favourite at the table.


Each round is topped with shredded cheese and baked to order, so you’re getting it piping hot, fresh from the oven.


Tucked within is a super creamy, house-made mac and cheese filling that’s zhnged up with beef salami and chives. Before serving, the pie is topped with a heaping of savoury onion crumble for an added oomph. It was a party in my mouth.


The Seaweed Chicken Pot Pie ($13.90++) was also delicious with its seaweed-studded crust, which held a satisfying medley of chicken, potatoes, carrots, and mushrooms.


I thoroughly enjoyed this umami-packed pie, and appreciated how generous they were with the amount of filling here.


Consider getting the Vanilla Blackcurrant ($6.90++) spritzer as a palate cleanser after all that feasting. This refreshing beverage comprises house-made blackcurrant jam infused with New Caledonia vanilla extract for a slightly smoky sweetness. Alternatively, the Grapefruit Elderflower ($6.90++) is an easy-drinking concoction of house-made grapefruit jam and light elderflower syrup.


If you’re still in the mood for sweet, the Vanilla Pistachio ($8.90++) will round up your experience nicely. Featuring a secret pistachio-and-milk blend, topped with vanilla cold foam, this creamy and nutty dessert beverage sorted all our sweet tooth cravings.

Ambience at Elijah Pies


The cafe stands out from its neighbours with its understated, tastefully designed exterior. A set of mismatched furniture in neutral tones is placed at the entrance, giving us a sneak peek at what to expect upon entering. But nothing could really prepare us for what’s to come.


Hidden behind the main door is a gorgeous cafe that looks straight out of Kinfolk, Ikigai edition. Rounded sofas, stone tables, curved edges, and light wood fill the space, but the real star of the show is a faux fireplace sitting at the end of the room.

Each piece of furniture is hand-picked by the owners to create a cosy, home-like setting. I think they nailed the vision.

Elijah Pies is a four-minute walk from Tanjong Pagar MRT Station.

The verdict


Come for the delicious pies, and stay for the beautiful aesthetics. Elijah Pies’ impressive range of flavours, coupled with the stunning interiors that look straight out of a magazine, make this spot a must-visit if you’re in the CBD.

With the brand’s huge online presence, I’m pretty sure the new cafe will be packed in no time once word gets out. As the seating space is rather limited and the cafe is fresh off the press, do give the team some extra time to iron out any potential opening kinks.

Another great cafe in the area is Takagi Coffee, a popular Japanese coffee spot with savoury sandwiches, pancakes and more. Alternatively, check out the new Allpress Espresso Cafe pop-up, located along Duxton Road!
