One of my favorite parts about being a Madison Realtor is discovering the hidden gems within the neighborhoods that I work. A couple weeks ago I found a new favorite, Humble Pie, tucked just off of Regent Street in the University Heights neighborhood. Folks, I hold no degree on the matter, but I do like to think of myself as somewhat of a “dessert connoisseur.” This means that I not only have a deep love for all things sweet and sugary, but I also enjoy them regularly and tend to analyze and compare their tastiness. I can tell you where to find a mean lemon blackberry ricotta muffin (4&20 Bakery & Cafe in the Emerson neighborhood), a killer doughnut (Greebush Bakery on the edge of the Greenbush and Vilas neighborhoods), a fantastic brownie (Collectivo Coffee in downtown Madison) or the best ice cream cone in town (Babcock Hall at the Union Terrace). I digress... Back to the subject at hand: PIE! I had the seasonal Blackberry Stack, which was quite literally the best dessert I’ve ever had. (And have I mentioned that I am a former Norske Nook employee? That place is kind of a big deal in pie world, people.)
Heed my taste bud expertise! The next time you are craving a delicious, moist, buttery explosion of amazingness, go to Humble Pie. Enjoy your treat at the shop to fully soak in the good vibes that can only be created by true pie wizardry. And while you should never feel guilty about enjoying a truly fantastic piece of pie, ride your bike, if you must, and work off those extra calories as you enjoy the towering trees and sheer bliss of some of the finest Madison neighborhoods on the Southwest Commuter path.
