- The Local Expert Team

When you need sweet and savory pies in your life, there’s perhaps no better place to go in South Shore Kauai than The Right Slice. They start the day early each morning to fill their cases with pies available whole or by the slice. Beyond that, they’re happy to whip up your favorite creations on demand, as long as they get 24 hours’ notice, of course. 

If you’re along the southern coast of the island, you can stop in at your leisure to order a slice of pie to enjoy right then and there. Prefer to keep it a little heavy on the crust side? Go for The Right Slice’s bite-sized pies instead, which look like a muffin while offering the full pie experience. Either way, you can settle in at their indoor tables or take your sweet treat on the road.

When you want the full shebang, you can order a whole pie in whatever flavor you want. On the sweet side, The Right Slice has everything from Mango Lilikoi Pie and Banana Cream Pie to Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pie and Haupia Purple Sweet Potato Pie. Beyond that, they have 30 different flavors of pot pie, including Chicken Pot Pie, Shepherd’s Pie, and Vegetarian Pot Pie.

All of The Right Slice’s pie flavors come in a variety of sizes to best suit your needs. You can get a small taste with their baby pie that serves four to six people or go all out with their large for eight to twelve. They have a medium as well for when you just want to have eight to ten perfect slices for a small crowd.

If you cannot find your preferred selections in their bakery case, you’ll need to put in a special order. The Right Slice just needs at least 24 hours to prepare your pies for pickup. You can elect to pick them up at their South Shore location, North Shore delivery spots, or at farmer’s markets all around the island.

Pure deliciousness awaits when you order these items from The Right Slice:

Island Lemon Pie
For a sweet and tangy kick, you cannot go wrong with the Island Lemon Pie. Made with beautifully-ripe local Meyer lemons, this pie looks just as good as its tastes. The double crust is a nice touch, too, giving it the ideal amount of crunch to go with the silky, smooth center.

Chocolate Haupia Pie
The Chocolate Haupia Pie promises to satisfy your every craving with its bold chocolate and coconut combination. They make this pie with 55% dark chocolate, infusing it with whole milk and eggs to create a creamy pudding. Once it lands in the crust, the chocolate base gets a thin haupia pudding, also made with care.

Shepherd’s Pie
The Shepherd’s Pie at The Right Slice is one of the most popular pot pies served at this little shop and for good reason. This savory delight features a stunning combination of local grass-fed beef, onions, carrots, peas, and corn. They put this winning mixture in a hand-rolled butter crust, and then finish it off right with a topping of homemade garlic mashed potatoes.

Although not available for all their pies, many of the selections at The Right Slice can be made gluten-free, without any sugar added, or both to suit your dietary needs. You likely won’t find these alternatives prepared in the bakery case, so be sure to order them well ahead of time to get your fill. You can put in your order online through their website, by giving them a call, or right at the front counter at their shop. They will let you know when and where to pick up your order, so you can arrive ready to devour your perfectly prepared treats.
