Pocketful of good
Savory hand pie, Camellia Coffee Roasters
The R Street Corridor’s WAL Public Market (aka Hipster Mini Mall) has a new coffee shop, Camellia Coffee Roasters. The coffee is excellent, and guests who cast their eyes downward to the glass edibles case will find a handful of freshly-baked sweet and savory hand pies that change seasonally. Their current savory pie—with sausage, cheese and jalapeño—more than satisfies with a ground beef filling that is neither too cheesy nor too meaty, and only a hint of spicy heat. With a flaky crust and an admirable level of saltiness, Camellia’s savory hand pies make a perfect portable lunch that will keep you full all the way to dinner. 1104 R Street, camelliacoffeeroasters.com.
