We're not just about great coffee


If you're stopping by early morning, why not let us help start your day with a tasty pot of Wolfy's porridge, or one of our delicious mini panettone's, they're the perfect accompaniment to that morning tea, coffee or hot chocolate.

And if you really want something hot, you wouldn't be the first customer to enjoy one of our Pieminister savoury pies for breakfast.

We won't judge!

When it comes to mid morning, our sweet Italian dessert pies really come into their own. How about trying a tasty slice of our apple, chocolate silk, cherry crostata, banoffee or pecan pies, or maybe even a sneaky little cannoli or barchetta to go along with your coffee?

It'd be rude not to right?

As lunchtime rolls around the definite co-stars of Piezanos are our Pieminister savoury pies and patties. Hardly a week goes by without a customer saying they're the best pies they've ever tasted!

Now there's an endorsement for you!

the what, the when & the why. 

We spent quite some time in the months leading up to our opening carrying out trials and taste tests on many different products. Several of which simply weren't good enough, while some completely surpassed our expectations! Our aim was to serve not only excellent quality food and drinks, but also products that you don't see in every other coffee shop, it was important for us to be different!

First, The Wet Stuff.

The first folks we brought aboard the Piezanos party bus were the Karma Soda soft drinks company. (The Lemony Lemonade being the true customer favourite, but I have to say my personal favourite has to be Gingerella, now that's a fiery red head!) We can't talk about Karma though without mentioning Karma Cola itself, not only one of the few cola drinks to actually be made with the cola nut, but also one that gives back! A percentage of each bottle sold gives back to the fairtrade and organic farmers of the cola nut in Sierra Leone, the sugar cane farmers in India, and  the vanilla pod farmers in Sri Lanka.

The next company we brought in were hot chocolate supremos Sir Hans Sloane. After trying many, many different hot chocolates, (most of which we spat out), we stumbled upon these guys, and oh what a fortunate stumble it was! Made with real chocolate beads, it just tastes like a cup of melted chocolate, a true hug in a mug! Not only the best hot chocolate we've ever tasted, but also the perfect base for our very own Mrs Jensen, a "Snickers" flavoured hot chocolate inspire by a character from our favourite Snickers Halloween commercial in 2010. (Go YouTube it now, it will change your life! Okay, it might not change your life, but it is pretty awesome!)

The next two products we welcomed into Piezanos go a little way to represent two of the big loves of our lives, Italy and the USA. Our still water Natia, comes to us all the way from Naples, a stones throw from Tina's family's home in southern Italy, and our sparkling water San Pellegrino, which we’re sure you’re familiar with, comes from Lombardy, Northern Italy.

Then come's our Arizona Iced Tea. Although the company was founded in Brooklyn, New York, every delicious sip transports us straight back to our time spent in Florida.

Ooh and you’d best not forget our new juices too! We’ve just discovered Frobishers fruit juices, and oh my, what a discovery. We love a quality product with an interesting story, and we think you will too!

We should probably mention our coffee too don't you think?

Our house blend comes to us from a company called Anvil, an amazing roastery in Basingstoke. We create our magic with their medium roast Anvil 2. It contains a blend of 40% Brazilian, 25% Colombian, 20% Honduran and 15% Sumatran beans, and we have to say, it's pretty delicious! Don't take our word for it though, check out the glowing reviews it's getting from our customers on Trip Advisor.

Now The Savoury Stuff. 

If your'e a pie lover, you're sure to have heard of pie aficionado's Pieminister. You'll probably have seen them in Harrods, Waitrose or Wholefoods if you hang out in those groovy places. We keep good company don't we! 

You can check out their amazing flavours in our menu section.

And Finally, The Sweet Stuff.

The moment we thought of sweet pies, we just knew we had to give a nod to Tina's family heritage, so we decided to use a local Italian supplier that sources most of their products direct from Italy.

While your'e enjoying your slice of crostata or pastiera napoletana, close your eyes and just let your thoughts drift to a little piazza overlooking the Amalfi Coast, and maybe, just maybe we'll put on some Annalisa Scarrone.

Who we are


Who we are


We are Husband & Wife team Shaun & Tina, and we decided to give up our day jobs to pursue our dreams!

The Piezanos story began almost ten years ago while we fancifully imagined owning our own coffee & pie shop after watching too many episodes of Pushing Daisies. Little did we know that the name and logo we came up with would stand the test of time and remain exactly as we had envisioned it way back then!

 The final straw that pushed us to eventually realise our dream of opening Piezanos was served along with one too many poor quality coffees. If you listen carefully, and the wind is blowing in just the right direction, you can probably still hear the phrase "This is awful, I can make better coffee than this!" ringing in the air around us. Our friends, (probably dreading every time we ordered coffee anywhere), called our bluff and simply said "Well why don't you then?" Well it wasn't long before the "could we, should we?" turned into the "we just did!" That was back in January 2016! 

We spent the time between January and April 2016 designing and building the inside of the store, and then began our research for our machinery and products. It was incredibly important for us to serve what we considered to be the best version of any product that we decided to offer to our customers, and we feel that we've done just that.

If you shop at Waitrose or Whole Foods you might recognise some of the products from our menu. We like to think that our incredibly popular Pieminister savoury pies, traditional Italian sweet pies, delicious Sir Hans Sloane hot chocolate, refreshing Arizona iced teas, Frobishers juices and Karma sodas are great representations of the quality we provide.

We're strong believers in the phrase "you can judge someone by the company they keep", so we hope we're moving in the right circles.

We still have a few spaces left in our menu though, and we're constantly looking for something special that sits perfectly alongside the quality products that our customers have learned to expect from us at Piezanos.
