Hand pies are a long-standing tradition in many areas of the world, including the Eastern United States. Whether you’re looking for a savory option or a sweet one, Little Susie’s is a well-known establishment in Philadelphia — so much so that they regularly sell out of their pies, which is one great reason to come in early. On top of the large variety of pies, they also have great bagels and delicious coffee. The seating is all outdoors, making it a great dog-friendly option.
