If you want a meal you can eat with one hand, visit The Peoples' Pies for a pastie: a savory hand pie with roots in Cornwall, England.

"I was inspired to start The Peoples' Pies because I had been making these pasties for a couple years," said owner Jessica Weiland, "always taking them on hiking trips or geology field trip picnics. I'm from Wisconsin and these are everywhere in the northern Midwest. When we came to Bend several years back, I thought that the idea of the traditional pasty with high desert flavors and ingredients might be well received here."
The menu includes four kinds of pasties: traditional, Cubano, vindaloo and shroomer—a vegetarian option, each served with a salad. Check Facebook for locations or find them at Ale Apothecary every third Saturday from 3pm to 7pm.
