Great as it is, the original Sweetie Pie's has always suffered from three things: location, location and location. The trip out to the original shop on West Florissant Avenue in Dellwood can take longer than the meal itself. Owner Robbie Montgomery's collard greens are worth the trip, but what's a city kid to do when she's got a hankering for Sweetie Pie's fried catfish but can't spare the half-hour in transit? Montgomery must have heard the city's stomach growling, because earlier this year she opened a second Sweetie Pie's in the Forest Park Southeast neighborhood. With high ceilings, great big windows and live music at lunch, the new Sweetie Pie's is every bit the equal of the original. The specials change daily, the cooking is down-home and delicious, and the employees still call you "baby." But best of all, the new Sweetie Pie's is so close that you can not only get your cake, but you can have time to eat it, too.

Yes, in deed. This is hands down the best soul food restaurant in this region, period. I have been to them all and have yet to find one that rivals Sweetie Pie's. The mac and cheese is the best, the fried fish is delicious, the cabbage and cornbread is to die for, and the peach cobbler is dreamy. Words cannot sincerely express how great this food is. I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just saw a piece on Sweetie Pie's on Food Network. Wanting to check it out because the food looked good and to make Food Network you have to be doing something right.. To Dorothy: Learn to spell common words. You sound like the type to complain about everything.

I've recently visited "Sweetie Pie's" on Manchester for the first time. As a matter of fact we had a birthday dinner for my daughter. Other than not having the tables together and ready for our 6PM reservation...the place was outstanding. The food was great. The staff went out of their way to assist us and made sure our visit was welcomed and comfortable. If you're in the mood for some belt loosening soul food go see the folks at Sweetie Pie's.
